I'iwi Gold Label Concert 3A Koa

Here is a Concert sized I'iwi Gold Label model 3A in curly Hawaiian Koa. These ukuleles are made on the west side of O'ahu one at a time by one builder. The attention to detail, tone, and aesthetics are all top notch. This ukulele is all solid Koa, with a mahogany neck. Ebony fingerboard, bridge, and faceplate. Bloodwood binding on both the top and the back. Abalone Maile Lei motif rosette. Abalone and M.O.P. logo inlay on the headstock. Grover friction tuners. Hand rubbed oil varnish. M.O.P. position markers. Bone nut and saddle. This model is usually available at Ukulele Puapua in Waikiki.
