    Default Can you help identify?

    Hello,
    Crazy request, while living in Hawaii, I bought (from Aloha Stadium Flea Market) this Ukulele around 2006-ish, I don't know the brand and was wondering if there is anyone who can tell me if they know what it is or anything about it. Inside it has the date of May 16 2006 and someone wrote 51X4. I looks like Koa and it has an incredible warm sound (Tenor) to it, and is my favorite to play thus far. Here are a few pictures, please note the Signature on the head. Also, the dolphins are something my kids added, did not come on it originally.

    Thanks for the help.IMG_7058.jpgIMG_8008.jpgIMG_8337.jpgIMG_9035.jpg

    The "H" on the headstock should help to narrow it down.

    Does it have a label inside, or a stamp on the neck block? Is the logo "H" or "N"? There are several databases for ukulele builders on the internet that you could check under these letters:

    No there is nothing inside relative to labels or any other information.

    Were they makers ashamed of it?

    It looks beautiful. I thought it might have been a custom build.

    The most notable booth at Aloha Stadium is "Best Hawaiian Ukulele" owned by Nandy Verano. They are on facebook, or contact by email and ask them: bestukulele@gmail.com

    Is it Mango wood or Koa? This might also help you finding out more about it.

    Other than "H" or "N", might the logo read "JS" instead?

    Yeah I don't know for sure, I'll reach out to BHU and see if it was them.
