I have successfully built great sounding ukuleles with a variety of woods. Koa and mahogany are popular choices but you should browse the Photo Gallery to see the many examples. I only use the highest quality, quartersawn tonewoods for instrument tops, backs, sides and necks. For koa instruments, I generally use a 3A or better grade. And wood upgrades are definitely available as I have extensive stocks of very curly master grade koa, curly and Honduras mahogany, various rosewoods, ziricote, primavera, mango, fiddleback and quilted maple and other exotic woods. Sitka and Adirondack spruce, Spanish cedars, salvage Douglas fir and salvage redwood is available for especially good sounding tops. I can email photos of specific wood sets for your approval as part of the custom instrument ordering process.
Pricing is calculated on a base price for each body size and style, then additional charges for upgrades in wood and decorative elements.
Decorative upgrades are priced according to the following guidelines. These are only guidelines, quotes will be provided for specific instruments. Price ranges reflect size and design variations.
I believe in 100% customer satisfaction. If for ANY reason that the original owner of a DaSilva Ukulele Co. instrument is EVER dissatisfied with the product, I will repair, replace or provide a partial or full refund as is appropriate. Of course, neglect, abuse or accident is not covered.
