#1: Mike (mgm) rules!
#2: Kalas are great starter Ukes! Especially when they're set up by mgm!
#3: Welcome to teh Underground!
#4: There's a whole lot of useful beginners stuff in the stickies of the Uke-Beginners section of the forum. Try checking there before you start a new topic. The search function also works quite well :D

No worries, eh?

You've definitely come to the right place, this forum is one of the coolest and friendliest on the net. I should warn you tho, you'll probably contract UAS pretty soon. And then you won't be looking at $60 Kalas, no sir :D

Once again, welcome to the ukulele experience. May this little instrument bring you joy and happiness.

Where are you located? The Kala is a good starting uke, and buying on line is OK, if you do not have a local ukulele store. If there is a store in the area, you can save some money or buy the KA-S for around the same price. I have compared the KA-15s with the Makala Soprano made by Kala, and they look and play identical, other than the label. You can save some money by getting the Makala, or get the KA-S which is noticeably better.

MGM in Hawaii is great to deal with plus you will get a uke that has been properly set-up. Good luck and enjoy!

If you ordered from MGM, Mike will send you a UPS tracking number. Yoyu can than go to UPS.com and watch your uke, along it's journey to your hands.

I don't know where you're located...but if it's within the states, I bet you'll have it by the end of the week. By tomorrow (or this evening), they'll have an expected delivery date.
