    Default N.U.D. - Ohana CK-120G Limited Edition!

    I'm finally getting around to posting about my new uke, an Ohana CK-120G Limited Edition concert! Its front, back and sides are all-solid acacia with a cool contrasting wood rosette. It has a comfort edge mahogany binding with black and white purfling on the front and back and a black and gold purfling along the sides of the uke. It's hard to see in the pictures but the tuners are kind of an antique gold. It sounds great and has a wonderful sustain. In the pictures it's really hard to capture how pretty the curl/striping is in the wood grain. In real life it looks richer and more pronounced. It's really cool to see the grain flame and change as you change the angles to the light. I'm really digging it!

    Money can't buy happiness but it can buy a ukulele which is basically the same thing.

    Wonderful looking! Congrats!
    More an appreciator of the ukulele than a true player. My motto is: "Don't matter how good it ring if it ain't got some bling."
