I want to thank John, Noa, Andrew and Kilin of Ko’olau for making me such a beautiful ukulele. When I approached them about this build, I told them I was looking for a more Spanish or classical guitar-sounding ukulele because my mentor, Howard Heitmeyer, had given me a sheaf of classical arrangements I’d like to learn and eventually record. The ukulele has not only met, but exceeded my expectations!
Custom instruments take skill, time and money (on my part). If one thinks about it, there’s no way a maker can financially recoup their cost in the price of a single instrument. This is our fourth (and a fifth in the works), custom Ko’olau ukulele and I will get every cent and more worth of pleasure from this instrument.
