After much awaited time and anticipation, my Ko'olau Tenor custom uke is finally in my hands. This is the delux model cutaway, slot head, waverly tuners and passive pick-up. Just wanted to share a few photos. Noa Bonk is a real pleasure to deal with and I got to see the Ko'olau shop.

Wow! that's one pretty uke! Congrats!

Surprisingly I haven't seen much Ko'olau ukes on UU. Usually the other K's and Pono.
