    Default FS: New Soprano Koa Uke by Black Bear

    Once again, here is a new soprano size uke I completed this week. It is made of 40 year old colorful Koa for the body. The neck is Mango wood with a graphite truss rod. Although the mango does have worm holes, there are no worms, very unique looking wood. There are 12 frets to the body, 15 total. Indian rosewood fingerboard and ebony bridge. Two maple wood rings for the rosette. White plastic fret dots with white side dots. 1 3/8" nut width. Bone nut and saddle. Grover brand chrome friction tuners with plastic cream-colored knobs. Worth BM brand strings. The playing scale is 13 3/4". High gloss nitro-lacquer finish hand rubbed to a satin smooth touch and look. Low easy playing action and a very full rich mellow Koa sound with excellent volume and intonation. Your complete satisfaction is guaranteed. No case but I will double box for safe shipping. Made in the USA. $25 shipping in the USA lower 48 states.Payment by money order, personal check or bank draft only, no Paypal. Email me at duane@blackbearukuleles.net or here on the UU if you need more information. Thanks for looking.

    I have a different Black Bear koa soprano, and it's a very fine instrument with great playability and spot on intonation. Very sweet sounding, good volume for the size, and just really, really nice. I sold some of my other ukes, like a Hawaiian K brand soprano also made of koa, but the Black Bear was never a candidate for selling. It was the superior instrument.

    The price for a luthier-made koa ukulele is astonishing. Always felt that Black Bear ukuleles are too cheap for the level of craftsmanship and sound they possess. Everyone else takes twice or more as much, for the same or less quality. This is a really good deal.

    Oh how I wish I had the money right now, that turned out beautiful, Duane. And pre strung with my current favorite strings. It's killing me that I can't get it.

    Price lowered to $450. Since I have not yet sold this nice uke, I am lowering the price one more time. If it does not sell, it will be on my web site and sit there. There does not seem to be much interest in my ukes these days, so I will not make any more, except on commission basis if I have the time and inclination. Thanks.
