I just ordered a Concert Deluxe KPK from localzkine :)
I actually used to own a Concert KPK (regular version) but sold it when I got my Mainland Concert Mahogany. At the time I preferred the brighter tone of the Mainland. Now, I kind of miss the warmer sounding KPK Acacia. localzkine was kind enough to let me choose if I wanted the nut & bridge in Ebony or Bone. My previous KPK had Ebony, but I thought I'd go with Bone this time. This one comes with Worths, the previous had Aquilas.

You know Stan, you're right. I think I'm going to stick with the Ebony (the uke ships out Tuesday).
I think I want to keep this one as warm as possible.

I had one KPK and I didn't like it. I found the sound very muted, maybe because of the ebony nut and saddle.

Have had my KPK standard concert for a few months and I like the less harsh tone of the ebony. BTW, this case fits my concert like a glove:
