LoPrinzi Ukuleles
Made in the USA

Augustino LoPrinzi began making ukuleles on a bit of a whim. Long-practiced in the design and handcrafting of guitars—both classical and steel stringed—Augustino was approached by Herb Ohta’s manager to create an instrument for the ukulele virtuoso. Ohta-San found the resulting ukulele to be a delight—and the LoPrinzi name soon became a legend on these small instruments.

Models: Herb Ohta, A, B, C, D, 2, 3, 4, 2K, 3K, 4K, Nova, MC/MS, MRC/MRS, 3CR/3SR, 5KC/5KS
