DeVine Concert Koa Hibiscus Sound Hole

Aloha, Sorry for the 10 day break. I was in Japan for the Aloha Yokohama Festival, the Ukulele Picnic, and some live shows in the Kanto area. Please check out the Ukulele Puapua site regularly for my touring/event/workshop schedule. I would like to meet you if I am coming out to your area!
Here is a DeVine Concert from Lahaina on the island of Maui. Eric DeVine has been hand crafting simply amazing ukuleles for the last 8 years for musicians all over the world. He also makes professional quality guitar and bass. This instrument is make of very curly Hawaiian Koa. The purfling is hand cut koa/maple/koa with ebony pinstriping. The binding is flame maple. Ebony bridge, fingerboard, headstock faceplate, and neck heelcap. Mahogany neck, with Waverly tuners. The logo inlaid on the faceplate is a M.O.P. base, with rose M.O.P. petals, abalone leaves, paua stamen, and black pearl pollen. Flame maple binding for the fingerboard as well.
The Devine also features an advanced Kasha bracing system, and has been "hyper-aged" using a cutting edge Pink Box system. I hold these instruments in the highest regard. I hope that you may have the pleasure of playing one someday. Mahalo.
