My Koaloha Tenor developed a seam separation that opened slightly on the upper bout. I sent it to Koaloha for repair and they fixed it for free great customer service! After a year or so the seam separation appeared in the same exact spot. You can hardly see it but can certainly detect with your fingers. Question: Is there a way to fix this without sending back to Hawaii again? There is hardly room to insert any glue and the alignment between the top and side is slightly off now. Fortunately, there's no buzz and the Ukulele sounds as good as ever.

Is the top separating from the side? I can't tell from the photo.

Yes the top is very slightly raised (paper thickness) from the side in this one spot. Not very visible to the eye, but can feel it with finger tips.
thanks 😊

If the top is now misaligned from the side of the body, this is certainly something KoAloha will want to replace. Let them.

Okay. Sounds like a plan.
