So the wife and I are planning a trip to Oahu this summer for a month to visit her cousin and my old ohana on maui.

I called my favorite ukulele shop to get some prices and lo and behold I found a deal that I could not refuse. I got a solid koa double puka abalone inlay tenor for an unheard of price. IT was so good I had to put my desire for a KoAloha on hold. (Good customer service and quality ukes will cause one to do that sometimes). Pictures will come as soon as I get her.

Congrats on the new ukey. Don't forget to post pics!

and about the above quote, KoAloha is the definition of good customer service and quality ukes tooooo :p, it just boils down to what sound you prefer better

You know it:)

Seriously, You guys have got to check out their anniversery sale right now. I called looking for prices on a pineapple concert. Ended up getting my "dream" Mele for half the price it normally would cost me.

Right you are. Everytime I call KoAloha I spend twenty minutes talking about ukes and God. I am getting a KoAloha and I had to dip into my KoAloha fund but the deal was too good to pass up. 1/2 price.

Is this (http://meleukulele.com/)what all the fuss is about?? Definately some good deals...Unfortunately, my wife has me in a 12-step program for Ukulele Aquisition Syndrome.

The treatment is as follow...

Step 1: If you buy another uke, you will beaten.
Step 2~12: Refer to step 1.

:D

I just got from Maui and met Cheryl and Eva. They were fantastic and really took care of me. I had my heart set on getting a 6 string, thinking I would have to get a Tenor, but they had a concerts, but they were all Mahogony. Eva made a quick call and I had a Koa 6 string Concert within 36 hours.:love: They even put a beautiful high gloss finish on it for us....:worship:

Great place to buy an intrument, a little hard to find at first but a great destination.:music:

I used to live right across the street from the MELE store. Never bought my first MELE until I moved to the mainland but Cheryl taught me my first chords and was so helpful to me that I have a hard time buying anything else. I will eventually get a KoAloha but until then it is MELEs for me.
