Had my eye on this ukulele for a while, and I'm so happy that I finally purchased it. Kala shipped the uke quickly, and it arrived nicely packed and safe on my doorstep right on schedule. The baritone ukulele is stunning in person. The pictures and videos I'd seen online still didn't do it justice. From the flawless gloss finish to the eye catching red padauk accents, it's an instrument I can't resist picking up and playing. Even the fretboard is a lovely dark color that sets off the bright cedar top and the padauk binding. It's a design that really catches your eye. The strings tuned up very quickly, and they held their tuning right out of the box. I love the sound. It's warm, loud, full, and resonant. This ukulele resonates for ages!!!! It's just what I wanted in a baritone. The fretboard is in tune all the way up, and it's perfectly finished. The action is great and so is the size of the neck. I've heard lots of men say it was comfortable for their large hands, yet it's also comfortable for me--a short woman with small hands. I did install strap buttons as I find a strap useful for playing on all my ukuleles, especially during long play sessions. It's just a great uke.
