Here in Hawai'i, I'iwi is among the most highly-regarded custom instruments you can get. For the last 20 years Charlie Fukuba has been amking excellent ukes on this island and they're among the very best being made. This one has a beautiful mango wood body, feels super easy to play, and most importantly it sounds great!

The design on this tenor with its three small sound holes lends itself to the rich guitar-like tones many of us love to hear. This is what Hawaii's top custom builders usually aim for a big, warm yet clear and projecting sound that sings. Take a listen.
