Corrales Supersoprano
The World of Ukulele luthiery is mainly centred around North America, (including Hawaii), Europe and Japan, (with other large Far Eastern industrial concerns thrown in), but it is not exclusively so. In the Spanish and Portuguese speaking parts of America a lot of fine luthiery is done, usually concentrating on Guitars or their more traditional folk chordophones, (Cavacos, Cuatros, Charangos, Tiples, Tres's and the like), but some of these luthiers do turn their hand to making a few Ukuleles and some of them look very fine and worthy of note.
