    Default Ohana TK-38?

    Anybody have thoughts on the Ohana TK-38? It's an under-discussed instrument on here. Curious to hear general thoughts on it but especially:

    1) Is it as light as the vintage ukuleles that it's supposed to look & sound like? If not, is it at least lighter than other modern ukes?

    2) How does it sound with a low G?

    I don't own the TK-38 but I do own the SK-38. It's real light weight and the sound is awesome.

    I am very interested in the TK-38. I love the all solid mahogany sound on Martin Sopranos, I'd like to hear the equivalent in tenor size in something easily affordable.

    I saw the 39 series in the Ohana Namm videos. I'd also love to hear if anyone has any experience with those models.

    Ohana is a sponsor of the LA International Ukulele Festival this year. I hope they will have a booth up with some models to sample/purchase.

    Haven't played one, but many reviews of the SK-38 and CK-38 claim they are very lightweight. I wonder if the TK-38 is still in production? I don't see any for sale out there on the innermess.
    Ask NOT what your country can do for Uke...ask what Uke can do for your country.

    I've been hoping it will indeed be as awesome as its SK counterpart.

    I'm pretty sure they're still in production. I called a store near me - the Uke Hut in Astoria, Queens - and they said that they are still in production and might order some. I had thought they were done for.
