This is still one of my favorite wood combinations for the Hawaiian Ukulele: curly Hawaiian Koa and curly
Really Gold Koa
Maidour burl and Koa binding
Back and sides
Koa back graft, Koa neck
Gotoh tuners on Maidou burl
Side port, yes!
Close-up of Black Walnut and Koa back graft
Black Walnut. The wood densities are a close match for sound and the color contrast makes for an appealing appearance. I have also used Hawaiian Koa for binding, back strip and neck while the accent wood is Vanuatu Maidou burl. The fret board and bridge are Macassar ebony, strings PHD low “G” and tuners are Gotoh planetary, 4:1.
