Thread: All KOA Wood Gem - Must See

  1. #1

    Default All KOA Wood Gem - Must See

    I found a great luthier who is a real craftsman. He built this ukulele from all KOA wood to include the bridge neck and fretboard. What was especially nice is that he allowed me to participate in the process and make decisions on how I wanted it to look to include the bindings, headstock and design. Go to birdwire.net to see more of this instrument some of his other works.

    That's a beauty. It would be really helpful if you listed the price. I try to always state the price of any of the ukes I post.

    Definitely one of the most beautiful ukes I’ve seen. Love the work on the fretboard stripe.

    I'd really like to know the price, there's nothing on the web site about price.
