    Its rare. They called it an FD-1. The koa also has some great flame.

    Cool uke. Do you mean HFD-1? Their naming convention now would suggest HF-1D, but those have rope binding

    How do you know it was made in Japan?

    that's really neat. An interesting piece of history and it looks to be in fantastic taste. Mighty tempting...
