A ukulele by Aloha Ukulele Manufacturing Co.

The ukulele pictured below is one used by Stella Lamond.

It has ‘Aloha Hawaii’ on the headstock with a coat of arms and a motto in Hawaiian.

Inside the uke there are wood-burned words TABU-MADE IN HAWAII”; there is also the signature ‘AKAI’.

And it has a snazzy case.
