That is just gorgeous! Is that binding abalone or honest to goodness mother of pearl? Congrats on a first uke which blows most others out of the water.

Take care,

Very nice-enjoy and hope you have many years with her!

I have a KPK concert cutaway with an ebony nut and saddle and am impressed with it's tone daily. It's incredibly sweet and woody sounding...like a more expensive instrument. Hope you enjoy yours as much as I enjoy mine.

Congrat ! I got the exact same one, arrived last week and has been going thru different set of strings. So far I like the tone from the Living Water strings. Also filed down the saddle to fit my playing, so far this is one sweet uke. :-)

Congratulations! I love the sound of my KPK. It is a great little instrument. I've actually been thinking about picking up another one to keep in low-G tuning.

So lovely!!! Congratulations! Add me to the KPK club. The first uke I bought myself was a tenor deluxe and it sounds, feels and looks incredible.

09-17-2013, 05:29 AM
Congrats and it sure looks awesome. Enjoy!

09-18-2013, 05:48 AM
Congratulations on your KPK....she is a real beauty!!!! Have tons of fun playing away!!!! :music:

Looks good! Go play!

Hang on to the wonderful memories and feelings associated with getting that first nice uke. To me, that's part of the joy of playing ukulele. And yours looks really nice.

09-18-2013, 03:30 PM
I like it! Congratulations!

Great looking uke...any sound samples coming? Shopping for a "won't break the bank" concert.
