Well its not new it's used but it's new for me! It275902759127592 looks and sounds great although the action is a bit high for me but I have a misi acoustic trio coming at the end of the month from a great friend who is buying it from Mike at mainland whilst he is on holiday in the states and bringing it back for me! I'll lower the action then when I fit it. The kala Acacia will be in normal tuning and the mainland will remain in baritone tuning!

Sweet look'n uke! I got the concert recently. Would have loved to get the tenor just for the headstock! Beautiful grain/coloration.

Yes, please! I'd love one, thanks!

Oh, you weren't offering to give me that beautiful thing. Shame.

I just got some sand paper and sanded down the Ebony saddle a good few millimeters and it so much better as well as easier to play

That's a pretty ukulele---love the blonde streak---glad it's feeling better after an action adjustment. Congratulations!
