Island Ukuleles?

Jul-14-2015 Tue

iu_p_01_sIsland Ukuleles are hand made on the Island of Kauai by Raymond Rapozo.

He makes Ukuleles in four sizes. (Standard, Concert, Tenor, and Baritone) He also makes Guitars.

He makes the Ukuleles mostly by himself so he doesn't make a great quantity of them. They are actually made by Raymond not just in his shop.

g01_03_sHe uses Koa for the bodies of the Ukuleles, ebony for the fret boards and Mahogany for the necks.

He likes to do inlay work on the Ukuleles with abalone and mother of pearl shell. Mainly on the fret board and around the sound hole and around the face.
