Using the classic ukulele body style of the first ukuleles brought over from Portugal to Hawaii, the Nunes style is a great mix of form and function. With the chevron rope binding, rosette, and fretboard detailing, this is a quality constructed product that does not sacrifice tone. It is made with a lightweight construction that gives the ukulele maximum tone and volume for such a small body. Mahogany has a warm, rich, and full tone to it. Ohana mahoganies have great projection for a mahogany. This one packs a lot of volume and punch. The beauty of it being an all-solid instrument is, the more you play it, the better it will sound. All-solid instruments open up with time, but will still sound amazing right out of the box. The Ohanas have a nice light construction that makes it very resonant. I think you will be very pleased! The vintage rubbed finish gives no barrier to the tone as well.
This model comes with the geared tuners instead of the friction.
