    Oh that's Purdy wood! Or beautious Maximus. Lol

    Highly figured wood is often hard to tell.. Maybe curly Cherry with som sapwood. Assuming you mean the back

    If you can believe that moving images and sound, can fly through empty space across the universe and be seen and heard on a box in your living room ?.. then you can believe in anything.

    I love mango!!! IMO mango shows more open grain than the sample. Timbuck... I'd love to see that when it sounds like a Ukulele!!!

    The back looks like the highly figured acacia you sometimes see marketed as koa from the far east.

    The top looks like either ceder or chestnut

    But I'm guessing

    Doesn’t look like Mango. Most likely koa... IMO

    Yep, that's what I would say also.

    Not sure about the back/sides. Sure looks interesting though.
    Ukuleles:

    LoPrinzi Concert (Redwood & Mahogany)
    Kala Elite 1MHG-S
    Ohana SK-25S
    Kala Elite 1KOA-T << Letting this one go soon. PM if interested.

    And the answer is: Phu Qoc Island acacia and incense cedar Well done everyone. Could have been any of those other suggestions.
