Best Soprano body/Concert neck Uke!
First of all, I'm shocked there are not more reviews about this instrument! This was my wife’s 9th Wedding Anniv. gift to me back in 3/21/2015. After researching Ukuleles, I told her this is the one I wanted (I desired a solid top, Soprano body w/a Concert neck). Best decision ever. This Uke is aesthetically gorgeous. Feels solid, sounds great, the binding is very pretty. I was even happier after I read that the back and sides were Mahogany (a true and tested excellent type of wood for Ukes and guitars!).
It’s a shame that it was discontinued, but you still can get it from some sellers on the net. I’m planning on installing a L.R. Baggs 5.0 pickup to turn it into an acoustic/electric. I highly recommend it. The only negative is not against the instrument but against the fact that KALA should have offered it w/a case specifically for its size (just like they offered it for the, also now discontinued, Kala KA-SSTU-S).
If Kala ever makes a Soprano body w/a Concert neck w/these same woods or even a Mahogany back & sides plus a Koa solid top, a Rosewood fingerboard and a Fishman KULA Ukulele pickup system…I’ll buy it immediately!!!...Hint! Hint! ;-)
