This is a concert-sized Hawaiian-made ukulele. Tortoise binding frames off the curly koa wood and Paua abalone shell is used to perfectly inlay the Hawaiian petroglyph Honu or Sea Turtle. Sea turtles, the true ancients of the world, have been swimming the oceans for over 200 million years. In Hawaii, legend tells about a green sea turtle, Kauila, who could change herself into a girl to watch over the children playing. This wonderful creature is a symbol of wisdom and of our Pacific islands.

An ukulele of this quality will last for many generations and pass down joy to all that experience it.
