Here we have a Twisted Wood Koa Concert Ukulele. Built using solid Hawaiian Koa for the top, back and sides, the neck is Mahogany with Ebony used for the fingerboard and bridge. In a departure from traditional Ukulele construction, a pin-style bridge as found on steel string guitars is used. This type of bridge is much easier to restring than the tie-block type found on traditional Ukes, and on Classical and Flamenco nylon string guitars.

Kawika 6 String Ukulele by David Hurd, Koa 1996

Kawika 6 String Ukulele by David Hurd, Koa 1996

Here is something rare and wonderful – a Kawika 6 string ukulele built in Hilo, Hawaii by legendary luthier David C Hurd of Koa and Ebony.  David Hurd built ukuleles and guitar family instruments for many years in Hilo, capital of the Big Island, but retired some years ago partly due to toxicity of some of the more exotic woods used in higher end ukulele construction. His ukuleles are rarely seen on the market and are well respected for the quality of their construction and tone.
