Using “12th Street Rag,” a popular early ukulele showpiece, as a demo piece, Rachel Manke introduced the new vintage-style Ohana SK-39 at our booth at the 2017 NAMM show.
Taking its design cues from the desirable Martin Style 3 ukuleles from days of yore, the Ohana SK-39 features a solid mahogany body, the distinctive “shield” inlay on the body, and extensive maple binding. Ohana’s Louis Wu says that the SK-39 will list for $429.
This ukulele is also available in a concert size, as the Ohana CK-39. Look for these to hit stores around April.
