Carbon fiber is an awesome material for just about anything that benefits from increased strength and durability - and that definitely includes ukuleles. Compared to the wood used in most acoustic guitars, carbon fiber is many times more durable. We have run our carbon fiber ukulele over with a car and it survived! Try that with a wood ukulele.
Carbon fiber ukuleles possess a combination of characteristics that are impossible to recreate with wood. Instrument makers of the past would have probably looked to utilize alternative materials like carbon fiber if they were available at the time.
Carbon fiber ukuleles possess a luxurious, artistic beauty. The beautiful fabric weave pattern is distinctive and eye-catching. The compact minimalistic headstock design makes the ukulele even more portable and strong - a perfect union of form and function.

A one-piece body and neck construction creates a seamless, comfortable feel. The body to neck transition is smooth and beveled. The heel of the neck does not go down to the base of the body but rather stops an inch short, which provides a more comfortable hand position and better access for playing on the higher frets.
