Is it time for your ukulele playing to bloom? The floral details found on our inlays and fretboard give just the right amount of sunshine so you can continue growing into the thriving player you are! It’s a new year and sometimes that means a new uke. Ohana has a range of ukuleles from laminate to all-solid builds but could this be your year with an all-solid uke? Flowers can help cinch the deal with the spirit of Aloha. If your uke sounds good and looks good, so do you. Let’s explore the Ohana garden.

Cynthia Lin Signature

We should already be very familiar with Cynthia Lin and her signature concert ukes. She’s often seen playing them during her Live 5@5 on YouTube and many other performances. Her line consists of models built with the student in mind and gives the beginner something of quality and beauty to look at.

Along with her signature on the headstock, the ukes are inlaid with a hibiscus flower design that marks the 12th fret. Hibiscus flowers are central to the Hawaiian lei and are often seen tucked behind an ear. To prove we come in peace and love, these models come with their own bag or case and cool Cynthia Lin swag.

Whether you want to start on the CK-14CL or the all-solid Mahogany CK-35GCE-CL, look forward to quality sound and playability. The choice is yours!

And check out the 3rd new option between the two: Cynthia Lin's Solid Top concert and tenor ukuleles

60CG in concert

We loved bringing back this concert model with updated improvements. This has been a 2021 favorite and there’s no sign of that interest waning.

It’s less floral and more leafy filigree. The gloss finish makes the body sparkle with dark wood binding and black-button Grover geared tuners to complete the look. It’s an all-solid Mahogany uke so you already know how well the sound will age. And don’t forget to have fun with the cutaway!

50ME in concert / tenor (Fifty ‘M’ ‘E’)

A solid top ukulele with flowers that keep your fingers on track. The solid Cedar soundboard creates warmth and medium projection while the Macassar Ebony back and sides produce great resonance.

The floral fretboard only wants what’s best for you by marking the 5th, 7th, 10th & 12th frets. They remind us to stop and smell the flowers. A good attitude to have when playing the ukulele. 


18OM in concert (Eighteen ‘O’ ‘M’)

This model also boasts the helpful floral fret markings like the -50ME but is built with a sturdy and lustrous Okoume’ veneer. It can be the perfect choice for the student beginning their ukulele journey intent on serious playing but not quite ready to go solid.

This was an instant fan-favorite released in 2020 and though it seems solids have more fun, check out how our Okoume’ sounds in the hands of talented and esteemed musician Abe Lagrimas, Jr. 

Whether you choose laminate, solid top, or all-solid, the Ohana garden has an uke with a flourish of floral for you. Check your nearest authorized Ohana dealer today!
