I've been wanting a black ukulele for a long time now. So far all I can find is a Dolphin and the Ohana sk-15. I've read the reviews of the dolphin but I like the looks of the Ohana. Can someone tell me how good a uke the Ohana is. Are there any other ukes that come in black? I've seen the Lava Flea but I want a traditional shape ukulele. Thanks

Nalu makes a sweet looking black cutaway tenor

The Ohana SK-15 is basically the same as the popular SK-10 series. The colour though are really tasteful. the red is gorgeous but I like the black too.

I think Lanikai also makes a black glossy uke.

Kala makes the arch top accoustic electric tenor in glossy black, I have the natural mahogany, my brother in law has a sunburst, buy a black one and we'll start a band. About $250 everywhere. Beautiful instruments, kinda quiet accoustically but sound great plugged in. Only had mine about a week and am sure it will open up.

Don't have that model, but have several Ohana ukes and love them. Nice tone, great quality, reasonably priced and plenty loud.

Here is the tenor that I have. Quite loud on it's own with an active pickup. Had to lower the action a bit too.

Anybody know a source for the SK15s in color that sets them up properly? MGM doesn't carry, and I want a reputable place that will set it up right. I buy Dolphins because I know MGM (and UkeRepublic) sets them up. I'm not interested in trying my luthier skills, but I would like the red Ohana.
