Comments It’s Twins – a pair of National Rope Bound Koa Resonator Ukuleles swaddled in form-fit hardshell cases!

Ukuleles have been enjoying a resurgence in popularity, and top-level builders have been stepping up to provide top-level instruments.

National ResoPhonic’s response to the Ukulele is typical of other National products – quality materials, solid construction, excellent workmanship, stunning looks, and great sound.

These two instruments are from National Reso-Phonic’s custom shop – the rope binding is a special order!

Pricing $3,549.00 Canadian dollars (each!) with hardshell case, or $2795 US dollars, based on 1.27 exchange rate.
