One of the fanciest Elite's to come out of the Kala Workshop...Built as a one-off, this ukulele is something very different. The Redwood top makes it unique. Paired with Koa, a wood grain with light curling and figuring with colors ranging from golden blonde to auburn red, and chocolate brown. This ukulele is trimmed in maple and abalone binding with black/white/black purfling. It also has an Ebony fretboard with Abalone markers, Koa buttons on the tuners and a UV cured gloss finish.  

Redwood has a broken-in sound and becomes better with time. It is tonally similar to cedar, but can be brighter, punchier, and crisper. Koa has a clarity, crispness, and warmth that will open up over time. The sweet tone of Koa provides a brightness that makes its midrange shine through.

It comes equipped with Kala Elite Fluorocarbon Strings with Low G in a Black Alligator hard case with a plush interior and includes a D’Addario® Humidifier Pro. 

This ukulele is considered a blem because the top is a bit wavy and there are three tiny pits in the top finish.
