A cousin of the Hawaiian Koa Gloss line, the Solid Spruce Top Koa Gloss line pairs an Engelmann Spruce top with Hawaiian Koa back and sides sealed in a gloss finish to bring out the grain of the wood. The Spruce top provides a complex, open sound with loud projection that pairs with the bright, midrange tone of the Hawaiian Koa back and sides.

Beautiful

It looks and sounds great. Not sure what Kaka considers a “blemish”, I can’t find anything wrong with it.

I had been playing a vintage baritone and decided to try a higher-quality instrument, and, wow - brighter, louder, and more comfortable to play.

Another great purchase from Kala

It is difficult to detect the blemishes that made this uke be discounted but that discount caused me to take the plunge and buy a baritone uke, which was not a planned purchase. Price was too good to pass up and I was pleased, but a bit surprised, with the sound. Solid spruce top with steel strings (like the tenor guitars I have purchased from Kala) are generally bright and icy-clear. This uke has a warm and subtle tone - somewhat similar to a parlor guitar but softer. It plays beautifully and has good intonation. I expect different strings will change the sound a bit but I love having this new, lower end to my uke line.

Excellent!!!!!

I wanted to get a Baritone Uke, Kala had a spring cleaning sale and marked it down so much that I couldn't refuse. So Top of the line Uke and Bottom of the barrel price! Outstanding instrument, sounds great, fine pickup. I am very Pleased
