Available now for sale! - Kepasa Madeira Maple Soprano Ukulele-
The Kepasa Madeira is a small bodied soprano ukulele with a 14" fingerboard scale. This model is named after the Portuguese island from which three instrument builders, Manuel Nunes, Jose do Espirito Santo, and Augusto Dias, brought the tiny instrument that eventually became known as the ukulele.
This Kepasa Madeira has an all maple body, maple headplate, Spanish cedar neck, t-shell celluloid binding, ebony fingerboard and bridge. The bridge is a string-through style.
Recently completed and looking for a good home! Sounds great, smooth playing, strung with D'Addario Nyltech strings. Has a surprisingly full and chunky tone for a small body soprano.
Price includes a very nice Guardian hard-shell plush lined case.
