Ohana CK-39 Series solid mahogany Concert ukulele in the Martin Model 3M Style.
A real "Time Capsule" of a Ukulele. A Concert ukulele made in the Vintage Martin Style, but without the $3,000 US Dollar price-tag. A new ukulele that looks Vintage, but comes with a 12 Month warranty and plays like a new uke should: NO worn parts, NO dodgy frets, NO wood splits, NO compromises that vintage ukes often have.
No they are not USA made, nor are they Vintage, in fact they are brand spankin NEW Modern made Chinese instruments. But the premium woods and styling cues are bang on point and the price for such quality is amazing.
Fitted with top quality components too, complimenting the Solid Premium Mahogany woods are the Gotoh friction tuners, the Italian Aquila strings, even a bone Saddle and Nut.
New to The Ohana Vintage Line is the much anticipated Ohana 39 series. Having been introduced at Winter NAMM’17, the CK-39 Concert (& SK-39 Soprano size) ukuleles are modelled after the original Martin 3M ukuleles. These NEW ukuleles are instant vintage classics looks and sound.
The Design The 39s feature premium solid Mahogany, with a multi black and white rosette and purfling along the top and back of the body as well as down the middle of the fretboard. Pearloid double dot inlays adorn frets # 5, 7 & 10, solidifying the classic aesthetic while simultaneously serving as a visual cue for ease of play.
The 39s also feature a Maple Pendalogue (the contrasting triangle shaped maple inlay on the lower bout), complemented by Maple binding which further unifies the look and feel of these ukuleles.
these all-solid instruments are the perfect addition to any collection!
Friend of Ohana, Rachel Manke, talks about what makes the 39 series unique as she compares and test runs SK-39 & CK-39 in the video below!
The new Ohana CK-39, like its soprano counterpart, features premium solid Mahogany, with multi black and white purfling and Maple binding. Its all-solid construction provides this concert with a very bright and balanced sound.
