I'iwi Gold Label Standard - Maile Inlay - Koa

Here is a standard Gold Label standard ukulele from I'iwi in Makakilo. CK Fukuba is a one man operation, and he produces some of the finest ukuleles in Hawaii. This standard gold label is made of curly Hawaiian Koa, and has a mahogany neck. The top and bottom are bound in purple heart, and the fingerboard, bridge, and faceplate are in ebony. M.O.P. position markers, and abalone maile style rosette. The I'iwi bird inlaid on the faceplate is in abalone, and M.O.P. also. Gotoh friction tuners, and gloss finish. For those looking for a second or third standard that is a step above a factory piece, this may be appropriate for you. A very delicate and pure sound. Mahalo
