Are you looking for a ukulele of hand crafted quality, from solid Hawaiian koa, but without the big price tag? Then you should definitely consider the Honu ukuleles. The Koa wood is harvested, cut, and milled on the Big Island of Hawaii. These are very high spec ukuleles, and use extremely high quality wood in the construction, yet are cheaper than most ukuleles of a similar spec because they are made in Asia.
