This lightweight early Hawaiian soprano uke is made of solid koa. Even the neck is koa. The headstock has an applied decal of the state seal of Hawaii. There is no indication of a maker on the instrument-but there’s a wonderul decal on the back of the head for Bergstrom Music Co. of Hawaii, with their 1920s address. There are a couple of little repairs, including reglued seams, a glued & cleated top crack, and a small piece of wood replaced on one of the ribs. All nice and neatly done. Classic uke sound. Measurements: Nut width 1-5/16″, a fairly long scale 13-5/8″, and 12 frets to the body. This uke did not come with a case, but we have a selection to choose from. The tuners are the original pegs, and it would be easier to tune with geward Pegheds – but we decided not to change them out because this was sooo original.
