Ki'i Pohaku (literally images in stone) are extremely interesting petroglyphs carved in into lava rock surfaces by ancient Hawaiians. It has been suggested that these curious carvings were used to mark important events, document travels, and to track family lineage. We decided to commemorate Ki'i Pohaku in the way we do best - by incorporating them into our newest laser-cut rosette design. Mahogany is a hardwood which has been used to make quality musical instruments for centuries. Its colour can vary a fair amount, from a pale pinkish brown to a darker reddish brown, and it tends to darken with age. Do not let the sober look of mahogany fool you, though - mahogany ukuleles know how to growl! The neck and fingerboard of the DUC373 are made from African okoume and Walnut. It's a great combination that guarantees a stable intonation across the fretboard, is gentle to your hands, and looks great as well. The nut may be a small component, but one that determines the pitch of the sound. The nut and saddle of the DUC373 are made from high quality plastic. Just one of the details that make this ukulele truly special. This ukulele features a completely redesigned headstock fitted with geared tuners that will always stay in tune. Light and stylish, yet offering excellent protection for your ukulele, Flight gigbags have already become legendary and with one hanging off your shoulder you will definitely make heads turn.
