This concert ukulele is made from the following woods: back and sides–figured Claro Walnut; sound board–Canadian Red Cedar; neck–Oregon black walnut; accents–Maidou burl. The binding is East India Rosewood. I also used an extended scale of 15 3/4″ for a little more string tension. The instrument was just strung up today, the strings not set yet, and it sounded great, especially for a small instrument. Gotoh 4:1 tuners and K&K under sound board amplification. Love the walnut.
