The Lo Prinzis are a very talented family. Augustino Lo Prinzi has been making high end and bespoke instruments for 60 years out of his Florida workshop and his youngest daughter Donna has been sharing the workspace and building quite frankly world class Ukuleles for the past 23 years herself. Talent must be hereditary after all, thats a lot of love and shared experience to put into your instruments right there.
The Lo Prinzi Ukuleles we have encountered are built very lightly and have a very traditional and pure soulful Ukulele sound. This gorgeous Koa Custom Tenor neck, Concert body model has some of the prettiest streaky Koa I have ever seen at any price. Somehow visually it pops fantastically which is less common on a satin finish, Ebony fingerboard and bridge and some stylish aesthetic appointments like the maple and walnut strip that runs up the length of the back of the neck and continues down the front of the headstock under the decal.
My favourite thing about the Lo Prinzis is the very thin neck profile with classic Martin style 36mm nut. If you are a fan of Martin, Gibson and the more vintage style Concert and Tenor instruments dating back 60 years or more then this instrument has all of the vibe one might expect.
I suddenly understood why Lo Prinzi Ukes have been so hard to come by in previous years.. We don't get too many of these and each one warrants the word 'Special'.
