Just returned from an excellent trip to Maui, Hawaii. Besides surfing, hiking and exploring a lot of the island I also bought a new (Soprano) Ukulele. It's made in Maui and has a birds-eye maple sides and bottom, spruce top, Koa wood neck and rosewood fret board. Modeled after the classic C.F. Martin soprano Uke this baby has tone, feel...and came with a hard shell case, too. Love it!
