Ok, so I bought a KoAloha from ebay. It is a slimline concert, advertised as one of a kind, custom.

All my other ukes have model numbers inside, and my Kanilea has a serial number. Useful I suppose in case of theft.

Do KoAlohas usually have some sort of marking anywhere to identify them? There's nothing on the label, is it hidden somewhere else?

My KoAloha had a date stamp on neck block inside the body. I don't recall a serial number.

Yes Koaloha does not use serial numbers...just a date stamp and the label has no model numbers...but a thinline concert from them is rare..

When I got my Sceptre, I couldn't find a date or S/N. I called and spoke to Brian, who told me that special instruments - including the Sceptre and Pineapple Sunday - have neither s/n nor date stamp.

The thinline concert may be such a special instrument.

Ahhh, thank you. I have found a stamp along with KoAloha logo on the neck inside the body. Can't read the stamp yet, but it's there. It is meant to be a custom, so maybe that's why.

Cool.
