Launched recently overseas the SK-28 is another homage to a vintage instrument, inspired by the instruments introduced to Hawaii by the likes of legendary luthiers Manuel Nunes and
"The Ohana SK-28 model is copied from an ORIGINAL UKULELE made by cabinet maker Augusto Dias."
The 'Figure 8' or 'Peanut' body shape is a true classic, it is the closest relative of the Portuguese instruments brought to the Hawaiian islands. Dias and Manuel Nunes the earliest
ukulele makers and crafted ukuleles for more than 40 years and are legend amongst ukulele enthusiasts.
History tells that Samuel Kamaka and Nunes own son, Leonardo, were apprentices and continued making quality ukuleles. In 1998, the Ukulele Hall of Fame inducted Manuel Nunes into their honorees.
Louis Wu of Ohana Music has come up with a fantastic homage to the 'original' ukulele, made in the traditional style.
If you are serious about your ukulele playing and uke collecting then a 'Peanut' body style soprano is a must have for you.
This soprano has such a pleasing warm tone and easy playability that you soon realise that the old master Luthiers really were onto something good.
