Finally got our uke from jvann, and I have been without a Uke for about a week and it seemed like I havent played for a very long time. It is a KoAloha Crown bridge Tenor and it is in mint condition like its brand new, but it was made in Jan 2009. I could not find 1 problem with it. I love the action and the feel of it,the weight is even lighter then the Pono MHTSH I had and sounds loud and clear. I switched out the Worth strings to Aquila just because I like how they feel and it still sounds really good. Might try out D'Addario (J71) Strings and see how I like them.

Anyways heres some pics....

I don't have a crown bridge, but my Koaloha tenor is easily my favorite uke. It's easy to play and loud as all hell. It sounds absolutely perfect all around. Enjoy it!

wow, that's a beautiful ukulele. A lot of people dislike the headstock of Koaloha but I actually think it's really nice. Congratz on the new uke!
