    Default Aloha concerts at Costco, SoCal

    I was at my Costco today and found Aloha concert sized ukuleles marked down to $55.
    These were selling for $95 in December. Looks like a limited deal, stock on hand, etc.
    We bought one and it seems very nice, though a little blingey for our taste.

    This is what they look like:

    I don't know if they have them anywhere else.
    Good luck!

    Sorry about not posting more details, I've been working a tonne.
    .
    So....
    I'm not an expert but this doesn't look like any koa I've ever seen and I grew up on the Big Island and I saw a lot of koa.
    No big deal, it is nice wood veneer.
    The wood is light colored on the body and light walnut on the neck and bridge.
    Its got a cream colored abs plastic binding and a lot on abalone purfling and abalone rosette.
    I'm not crazy about the looks but that's me. The whole thing seems nicely finished and well put together.

    The back has a pronounced arch and a little camber.
    This ukulele comes with Aquilla Nygut strings, It is LOUD!
    The action on the one we bought was good out of the box.
    Nut with seems average, I'll try to put a micrometer on it latter.

    All in all a very nice instrument and really nice for the price.
    We have a girl in family who we can gift this to, so we are pretty happy.
