In being on the look out for nice Ukuleles I see the work of a number of full and part time luthiers. The instruments they make look very nice and worthy of note.

Cody Seeler - Seeler Guitars

Comes from the Big Island, started in 2004 and makes Guitars as well. I have only seen Tenor Ukuleles but there is the Brahguinha too

Dennis Kato - Mako

Comes from Maui, I have seen Concerts and Tenors and a lot but not all of them have the little fish on the soundboard

Stanley Ishikawa - SI Ukuleles

From Pearl City, O'ahu, who creates Concert and Tenor size Ukuleles, usually out of solid koa. I don't know much about him but he started making Ukuleles some time before 2005
