Koa from Hawaii

1K Ukulele

Start with AA Grade Hawaiian Koa

Perhaps one of the most distinctive things about Koa is that it grows nowhere else in the world but Hawaii. Within this island region, it generally grows at elevations between 2000 to 6000 feet above sea level. Koa's growth form and habits can vary slightly from island to island.

Koa wood is arguably one of the most beautiful woods in the world. It is special in its own right because of its unique figuring, colors, and textures. All of which is influenced and determined by the age of the tree, its elevation and soil in which it grows. Koa’s colors range from light golden blonde to auburn red, to deep chocolate brown.
