I am absolutely amazed! One does well by tightening the screws on the back of the tuning ,nobs' just a little. And that is the only thing I have to reccomend because it is absolutely astonishing in feel and sound :) I see it is from July inside it, but only 5 pics unfortunately :D

And whoa it is small :D First time holding a uke !

Here are some pics:

Congratulations on the new uke! As Stan knows, I bought a KoAlana concert on the spot from Misicguymic (MGM) during my visit to HMS in October. MGM played both a KoAlana and KoAloha concert for me with my back turned and I really couldn't tell the difference. As MGM noted, a lot of an ukulele's sound coms from its build design, and KoAlanas have the same bracing system as KoAlohas. I love my KoAlana concert. I'm glad you love yours.

Even though I've had many ukes, I still get amazed everytime I first open the case of a new uke. They're so small! Then I pick it up, and it feels like home. Happy uke day, and keep us posted on your new uke adventures!

Congratulations!! Not bad for a first uke, this is one of the most beautiful, best sounding ukes on the market at this price range. Enjoy! :)

I agree! The first KoAloha I bought I thought I was ripped off when I picked it up. It was so light! Then I played it. Little dog with big bark!

Excellent choice for a first uke - bypass most of the stuff that will give you UAS! :)

Once you fall in love, UAS takes over. I started with a Koaloha Tenor and didn't slow me down a bit. LOL

Get a tenor or bari w/ spruce top and you'll really feel like you're playing a mini-guitar

Ahh...see, you're one of the ten-percenters, then. I figure UAS is caused by hoarding / collecting mentality for about 10% of "sufferers" and just not having found one good enough as the cause for the other 90%. :)

Congratulations! Beautiful first uke and good choice :) so many of us are initially disheartened as we make the mistake of getting a cheap ukulele, I'm sure you two will be making beautiful music together!

You guys are awesome hehe .. (: Just jammin a few days and life has changed, an ukulele will pull about goodness into ones life (HMS/UU all the folks included). If something so little and simple pull it of, we all can and I don't know if thats just me but yeah..
Peace and big alohaa
