I have a KoAloha concert and LOVE it. I was thinking of getting a soprano for my wife, maybe pikake. I got mine from MGM and really liked looking at the picture he would post.

So, where do you get them online, now-a-days?

Didn't like the look of it in photos either, but did like it when I saw the actual uke.

My ukes don't have the new bridge but I did see it at NC Ukulele Academy and was surprised that I really liked it.

I think I would call up Koaloha directly and see what they have or you can put an order in. if you are set on buying online there is ukulele uprising on the main page or even ukes.com

Why not call KoAloha directly. Tell them you are a repeat customer. Why go through a middle man, when you can go direct?

Are you talking about the bridge with the KoAloha name/logo? Here is a closeup from my concert-

When I went on the KoAloha tour, I was told by a KoAloha representative that the best place to buy a KoAloha ukulele is in Waikiki because they had great prices there and KoAloha doesn't compete with its own dealers. While I was shopping in Waikiki, the two places I went to that had KoAlohas and impressed me the most were Bob's Ukulele (http://www.bobsukulele.com)(I went to the one at the Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center; there's also one at the Marriott Waikiki Beach) and Ukulele Puapua 2 (http://ukulele.pua2.com) on Kalakaua Avenue. The person I met at Bob's was really friendly and knowledgeable about ukes, and the people at Ukulele Puapua 2 offered to email me photos of ukes in stock and play the ukes I was interested in over the phone if I couldn't buy one in person. I also saw KoAlohas at Dan's Guitars (http://www.dansguitars.com)in Honolulu for the same price they were selling for in Waikiki, and the people there are great too. Good luck!

I believe that Mike (MGM) still has quite a bit of stock, you might call him and see what he has left in the way of KoAlohas. I don't recall his new phone number but it's posted in a couple of the threads about his illness and so on.

I know he's having to work a little slower with the illness and I guess the guys that worked for him bugging out but that would still be my first call if I were looking for another KoAloha.

Actuallly, MGM posted his phone number in this thread, too (post #14). It's 808-927-7297.

The new english site where you can buy Koaloha instruments is at www.puapua.net. The older one is www.ukulele.pua2.com. They/ we are located on kalakaua ave at the sheraton waikiki! Come visit and we will show you the Koaloha we have in stock. We have several custom models from them at the moment! Please let me know what we can do to help.
