    Default New David Newton Koa Concert, long scale neck.

    Sold. Thank you!

    New. Lively 16" scale Koa Concert ukulele.
    1-7/16" nut, 1/5/8" string spacing at the bridge.
    Big, full, punchy, woody tone. Easy playing action, plenty of room for flashy neck work.
    The neck is Honduras Mahogany with a Texas Ebony fret-board, 14 frets to the body, tiny pearl dot markers on the side. Rosewood bridge w/ Ebony saddle for best tone. Rosewood head overlay, Texas Star inlay. Worth CM strings. All hot-hide glue construction. Glossy French polished Shellac finish. Vintage-style Waverly "barrel" friction tuners with Koa buttons.
    Included is a black nylon hard foam "Uke Crazy" zippered case.
    Shipping extra, usually around $25 in the lower US.

    Wow, what a gorgeous instrument! Can't imagine this'll take long to sell. Love the shape of the body and the materials used. Beauty!

    The 16 inch scale is very appealing to me Dave. Hows the volume on this beauty?
