Pictures AND video shows the ukulele for sale! This one sounds incredible and looks exquisite!
Also known as the "Ohta-san," this bell-shaped ukulele was designed by Sam Kamaka, Jr. and Herbert Ohta in 1965. It produces sharp, clear tones and was designed primarily for fingerpicking purposes. Deluxe features are rosewood binding, rope purfling and a rope rosette around the sound hole. The fingerboard and bridge are ebony!
The HBD-2 is unique. The scale length is almost an inch longer than their normal concert. With the bell shaped body and factory set wound low G it provides very deep in tonal range. The low G but in this scale is more like the tones of a baritone but in the regular GCEA. It's a wonderful tone and as easy to play as you can imagine.
