This is one of the best sounding soprano's we have had come through the store. It has unusual sustain for a small standard size and is extremely easy to play. If you ever see pictures of the first ukuleles brought to Hawaii from Portugal they had this type shape and headstock. This ukulele is modeled after those first ukes but with modern touches, like a water based gloss finish and a spruce top bound in ebony. The sides and back are a wood that Kamka and other ukulele makers have used for years, Monkey Pod aka Rain Tree. Listen to how amazing this ukulele sounds! -
This level of quality only comes from a master builder doing what they do best. This is not manufactured. This is custom made by an artist and master woodworker, Steve Williams, here on Oahu. If you want a piece of Hawaiian musical art that can really sing, an ukulele that is unique and beautiful. This custom Halekoa may be just perfect! Comes with an Oahu deluxe hard shell case and Herco Humidifier and is still under a grand with free shipping. What an amazing value!
