Michihiro Matsuda's Experimental Ukulele

Ukulelia's Commander of Expeditionary Lutherie Forces, Michael Simmons, points us to luthier Michihiro Matsuda's experimental ukulele, currently featured on the Fretboard Journal blog.

The top is made of a sandwich of Nomex® and spruce, bent into a bow shape. Nomex is a lightweight, ultra-strong high-tech material used in the manufacture of aircraft.
