ABOUT 
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.  

WELL DONE CREATING THIS UKULELE
Louis Wu of Ohana Music has come up with a fantastic homage to the 'original' ukulele, 
made in the traditional Portuguese / Hawaiian style.

SUMMARY
If you are serious about your ukulele playing and uke collecting then a 'Peanut' body style Concert is a must have for you. 

The fretboard is completely flush with the body, another vintage style feature - this leaves more of the top to vibrate, helping to shape the tone of the instrument.

This Concert has such a pleasing warm tone and easy playability that you soon realise that the old master Luthiers really were onto something good!

SUPERIOR  TONE-WOODS
Featuring a combination of Solid Spruce wood top with Solid Koa wood back and sides results in both a bright tone (The Spruce) Combined with the Koa you also get that big sustain and full sound.


GREAT LOOKS
The faux tortoise shell binding creates a a really upmarket look too separating the classy Spruce Top and the golden honey toned Koa Wood sides.

The quality Belcat Preamp of the Pick-up is fitted perfectly into the side of the ukulele.

The gloss finish is very good too, it will offer a strong long-lasting protection of the woods and it is applied smooth as glass.

Gold tuning Machines with small black buttons suit the look of the headstock.  Also the small head buttons are so much easier to use, a thoughtful touch.

ELECTRIC ACOUSTIC WITH PICK-UP
TK-70KE Ohana Tenor UkuleleThe TK-70KE is an Electric Acoustic ukulele and features pick-up with a 3 band eq with on-board pre-amp, output is strong and clear, with plenty of range in tones available from the Treble and Bass sliders, from Dark Smooth Jazz to Bright Country or Funk tones can be had.

QUALITY COMPONENTS
Keeping with the quality focus of Ohana the Ukulele is fitted with a bone nut and saddle.  Bone is not very easy to work with at all, shaping and cutting bone is difficult precision work , and time consuming.  Fitting plastic parts would have been much easier and quicker BUT when "ultimate tone" is the goal, then fitting quality components  is essential, no mater how much longer they take to shape.

The gloss finished applied is smooth and blemish free.  To achieve a fine glass like gloss finish takes time and lots of it, with many coats of spray and hand sanding between coats required to get a finish this smooth.

SPECIFICATIONS
Solid spruce top
Flamed koa back & sides
Rosewood fingerboard & bridge
Tortoise shell binding front, back, headstock
Active 3-band EQ
Bone nut & saddle
Aquila strings
Gloss finish
