It's called a musibi sound hole. A KoAloha original.

Hey, thanks for the info - I love the sharing on this forum :). Those KoAlohas have nice detail. I also like the crown detail at the soundhole end of the fingerboard - much like on the headstock. Colours are great too.......damn I'm getting jealous lol!

I love the looks of those ukes. Fancy where others are plain, elegant and understated where others put bling. That thing is gorgeous. Congrats!

Long neck soprano, perhaps the perfect ukulele. Congrats!

Congrats! It looks sweet! Is it a concert neck on a soprano body?

Yes, that's it, soprano neck is a little bit short for picking, so concert neck is better for my playing, and soprano voice is nice, so the long neck is, as someone said above, the perfect instrument ;-) (but I love tenor too...)

I know it's a typo (sure you ate plenty Spam Musubi on Maui) but just for clarity: Musubi (aka Onigiri) is a Japanese rice ball traditionally shaped into a rounded triangle. Spam Musubi a local adaption is brick shaped. ;)

I've been in Georgia too long Ahnko. I thought my spelling didn't look right. I still eat plenty spam musubi. I love making it and since we visited Hawai'i this summer the wife loves it now. I just never spell it:)
BTW that picyure really shows the similarity.
