    New Ohana BKT.

    Just played the new Ohana baritone body and tenor neck ukulele.
    Beautiful ukulele and with a great matching sound. Not crazy about the Aquila’s, but that is an easy fix.

    The notches on the bottom of the strings are a good sign of wear.
    I check my strings and when I feel the notches I do a string change.

    I too like really low action, I sometimes describe it as dangerously low.

    I applied for “UKE 52MG” for my 1952 MG. It was rejected by the CA DMV, for being profanity.

    I have a TK 70, rosewood laminate.
    Great Uke for the money. Most of the sound comes from the solid spruce top.
    I would expect most of the models sound similar, since the back and sides are laminate.
