67 uke

26/11/2012. This project is based on scientist Michael Kasha' s design, He collaborated with the American luthier Richard L. Schneider (1936-1997) for 30 years and he made the creation of innovative instruments that were going to upset the traditional designs both Spanish and those developed by Frederick Martin in the 40 '.

The ibiscus soundhole is a drawin by Eric DeVine and the uke is inspired by his masterpiece.
Thanks to Mr. Eric DeVine.

For this instrument I wanted to use the Koa. This plant grows only in Hawaii. Amazing figuration and great acoustic capacities.

You can see the construction phases.
