With the addition of the Sceptre to the brood, I thought I'd take a few photos of a "family gathering..."

The unifying painting in the middle is a mixed media representation of the Super Concert commissioned for me by my wife from a local artist. And... the hangers are from UU member ToucanMango.

Not pictured is my first KoAloha, a Soprano Pikake now owned by my daughter who introduced me to the uke. And, HaoleJohn is responsible for my undying thirst for more KoAloha's!

Mahalo!

That's a fine looking family. Is that a portrait of Grandaddy? :)

I am really looking at the KoAloha - Imaikalani - 6 string Tenor that HMS has posted... I'd also get the Five.0 pickup in it if I do. I've never played a 6-string & though there are plenty of "entry level" or in between, or even a custom option, I know I'll like the KoAloha.

My Kamaka "ohana" is just one vintage pineapple, though I could be persuaded to add a concert or newer pineapple.

(It's all Mike at Uke Republic's fault! I was safely in UAS remission after my Mya-Moe arrived & then I dropped in his new store in Atlanta & left w/a Kamoa Grand Concert! Added about 11(!) ukes since then!!)

If you buy one more, you might get an actual member of the KoAloha Ohana along with it for free.

Gmoney--when I first saw your thread, I thought, "Man, that dude's got a ton of Koaloha mojo there." Well, over time, I've gathered a cadre, myself (see signature below). Nice ukes. A singular, unique sound, for sure. (that's why we love them, but also why we love other brands, too). Aloha.

P.S> I assume your saw MGMs thread on how the price of these K's just jumped. I'm getting dizzy.

FnC, actually, I don;t know. It's just a girl with a ukulele and a straw skirt falling off. But, it is beautiful, yes.

Heee Heee! A great variety there Glen! I first sold a uke to glen in a Starbucks parking lot from the mobile Uke Republic store :)

If I could produce a nice painting of the pineapple sunday, would you trade that?
