I don't know where to begin. I've never held a KoAloha in my hands until today. This morning I completed a trade for a 2009 KoAloha Soprano with a local UU member. Then on my way home I spotted the UPS truck parked at a shopping center near my house. I picked up my package from MGM containing my new KoAloha Tenor. Yeah two in one day, that's just nutz!

Anyway I'm just really thrilled. Glad I had the day off! Spent more time with the Soprano today. I really like it! The tenor is strung low G, my first low G uke, so I'm still getting used to that. Really looking forward to getting to know these two ukes!

I'm pretty new here on UU and I gotta say I'm glad I found this place! Mahalo!

Some pics for ya...

Congratulations on both ukes, I particularly like the grain pattern on your new tenor. And a belated welcome to UU.

Now you just have to join the KoAloha Crowns. :) http://www.ukuleleunderground.com/forum/group.php?groupid=21

Nice grain on the tenor and one piece top and back on the soprano. You've hit the jackpot my friend!

Thanks all! I forgot to mention that the sides on the tenor are two-tone, which I think looks pretty cool:

You must be kidding me! What's better than one KoAloha in one day? TWO KOALOHA'S IN ONE DAY

Beautiful KoAlohas! Pretty cool as I was the original owner of the soprano (got it from MGM...see sell thread here (http://www.ukuleleunderground.com/forum/showthread.php?22088-KoAloha-KSM-00-soprano)...well, at least it looks like the same one). This was my first "K" uke and I'm glad it's gone on to a good home!

Yup, looks like the one. I guess I'm the third UU member to own it and hopefully the last! It sure is a sweet little thing!

Congrats on the two KoAloha's. That might just be a record, two in the same day.

It was like two within an hour. The trade was by complete coincidence. A happy coincidence! :D

That grain pattern on the tenor is killer. I'm extremely jealous, I really love the look of KoAlohas. Some day I will get to have my way with one.... did that sound dirty?
