Artwork Ukulele

This tenor ukulele was purchased by Olukai ( as part of it’s contribution  for this year’s Surf Industry Manufacturers Association annual Waterman”s Ball ( silent auction.  I was pleased to collaborate with ocean artist Wade Koniakowsky ( this year to provide a tenor ukulele showcasing  our art.  This ukulele is fabricated from premium curly Tasmanian Blackwood–Koa’s southern hemisphere cousin–and a Canadian Sitka Spruce top featuring Wade’s artwork.  This ukulele is definitely a one-of-a-kind collector’s instrument.  I was unsure of final sound quality during construction but  was more than impressed with the pleasing sound it produced upon completion.  I already have my next project in the works.
