Ebony fingerboard and bridge with a koa wood tie-block accent. Open-geared Gotoh UK-700 machine tuners are light and very precise. High gloss nitrocellulose lacquer finish with as perfect a finish as we have seen for years.
  • Intonation is perfect, and the uke is well balanced and easy to play. The tone has sustain and clarity on each note with harmonious blend in chord work. One of the loudest but most expressive ukes we’ve had.
