    Question Ohana SK 39 - When available?

    Hello everybody

    Does anybody know when Ohanas new SK 39 will be available?

    I already contacted a few dealers but I haven't received any answer so far.

    Thank you in advance !

    When I was impatiently waiting for the CK-35-8, they said May of last year, then August, then October, it finally showed up at the end of the year...

    I hadn't heard of these, so looked em up. New Ohana Style 3 ukes, soprano and concert. Cool option for those who want the Style 3 look, at a much lower price point. I wonder why they didn't get the moustache shape right on the bottom? Also, the white lines on the fret board seem rather faint, compared to other Style 3 copies out there. Maybe it's just the glaring white Nylguts.

    Are they still making the CK-38 and TK-38? I don't see many for sale out there right now. MIM has a flock of the SK-38, not none of the larger 38-series sizes.

    These are pretty tempting. But then I wonder if they'll venture into some Koa Martin styles in the near future. That would be awesome.

    Tempted to grab one assuming they don't disappear too quick.

    Ohana make cracking instruments. Great value without skimping on sound.

    They shouldn't and if they do there will be more coming in!

    But you hit the nail on the head with the great value without skimping on sound. And I may seem biased since I sell so many, but I sell so many because I can back up the tonal quality for price. They really have a lot of tone for not a lot of money! So when people say, "What is the best uke in _____ price point." It is hard to not say Ohana.
