Acacia 6-string plays beautifully with softer than expected tone

I purchased this "blemished" instrument at discount (there is some discoloration, perhaps a glue smear, at the end of the soundbox). The defect is hardly noticeable; the wood and finish is otherwise absolutely beautiful everywhere on the instrument. The build feels solid and the set-up perfect for my style of playing. This is my first Acacia ukulele and I find the tone to be lovely--sweet and balanced. I was surprised at its relatively soft projection in comparison to my mahogany, spruce and and cedar top ukuleles. The tuning of the six-string felt upside down at first, disorienting -- like switching from a tenor banjo to a five-string. It seems to really enhance the melody line of some songs while other songs sound muddy, at least in the keys in which I normally play them. But the more I play it, the more I am enjoying the discoveries I am making with it: new fingerpicking patterns that bring out the dual course strings, finding songs that sounded dull (when I play them) on other Ukes but really come alive on the six-string.

Thanks, Kala, for the reliably high standards of all your instruments.

Looks and sounds like a 1st.

Honestly could find any blemishes on this all solid Acacia Ukulele. I found this to be an incredible deal. Very satisfied. I expected there to be several noticeable flaws, but, found only a dot or two that could hardly be seen under close scrutiny. Beautiful looks and tone.
