Aaaaaaaand MGM strikes again. He actually knew about these before I did, since I was sick the week my brother decided to start producing them. They will be a regular model, as long as there is a steady demand. They will come with the same Grover geared as our tenors. They're actually easier to make than the long neck standards. Sound wise, they're kind of like a PS, but a little more mellow. As far as the price, I don't know what my brother set. MGM will probably chime in before I look it up.

I heard (from a reliable source) that KoAloha would be making 8 String and Baritones?? If this is true when can we expect to see them?? Also, Paul..................What do you mean when you say your new model sounds like a PS???? Howie

Subliminally, that picture seems to indicate Paul's size. XD

Cool uke, I should stop buy and try one out and collect my money from Doos mafia style. :P

Thanks so much for all the great service Mike. Both tunings sounded great (but then Mike can make any 'ukulele sound great).

Thanks Staci. I do feel lucky to have #1 and thats all due to the great service from MGM. Now if only I could play like Mike (I know practice, practice, practice).

I had the chance to play and touch the Koaloha Tenor neck Soprano this afternoon. The sound is great and it is such a beautiful instrument and it was suprisingly light in weight. Now, I definitely want one...
