I have a opportunity for a MAKAI TKU-24 all koa tenor, for 300.00
Looking for thoughts on this uku.

Thanks

Only familiar with their all laminate models. Generally a lighter construction than many in their price range, they also sound a little fuller and more resonant and have used a bone nut and saddle even on their cheapest uke. Not familiar with the TKU-24. Could be good for that price. I'm not crazy about the sealed gear tuners, including the ones on my Pono concert.

Thank you for your thoughts, it has a really nice full sound, decent action. I agree with you on the closed gear tuners.
Thank you for your thoughts!

Personally for that money I'd try to find a Kala cedar top tenor. More bang for the buck. Makai is a good cheap ukulele, a beginners uke, but you can get better sound for $300.

Some Makai models are the equal of some Kala models
