All Solid Hawaiian Koa
Top, back and sides are all solid wood. aNueNue uses wood that has been naturally air dried wood and are season for many years before even being put into production. All our solid woods are used for our high end pieces. All aNueNue’s solid wood pieces require time to open up and will develop an overall distinguished more complex harmonic tone quality.

Selected 5A Grade Hawaiian Koa
Curly or wavy patterns are rarer and are typically found in the old-growth trees. Figured is also desired and typically milled from areas of the tree where there is the most stress. For example, where the branch forks or twists. Pressure from the weight of the branch and/or stress created by the wind often causes the tree to develop this figuring.
Koa has a tonal quality that musicians seek. It has a midrange focus with extra top-end brightness. As the instrument is played with frequency the tone continues to open up to an even richer, sweeter, and more pleasant resonant tone. That, combined with its aesthetic appeal, Koa has branded itself as one of the best materials for instrument building.
Built from solid AA Hawaiian Koa, these instruments are very alluring and pleasing to the eye. Constructed with traditional fan bracing, the 1K series offers a very sweet and balanced sound. These rich and pleasant overtones are sure to please your ears.
The 3K Series is very charming. Built from solid 4A Hawaiian Koa, the 3K series offers Mitsuta's unique Mount Fuji-voiced X bracing. This type of bracing produces very clear and warm sounding overtones. Hawaiian Koa wood adds natural compression to balance out aggressive playing while maintaining clarity and warm lows.
5A Hawaiian Koa is extremely beautiful and breathtaking. Our 5K series features Mitsuta's signature Mount Fuji-voiced X brace. These instruments produce very clear overtones, warm mids, and deep lows. 5A Koa wood is slightly more dense/hard which creates an extremely well-balanced tone, good dynamic range, rich lows, and long sustain.
