    Never heard of a koa fretboard. The neck does look perfect for finger picking. Can you provide the nut width measurement please.

    KoAloha used them on sopranos and concerts until just this year. Probably very traditional, seeing how the early Hawaiian ukuleles even had koa saddles.

    If I measured it properly it's 1 11/16".

    LOL! Yes, I've played it around the house just noodling around. I guess I consider "playing" when a uke gets taken to a kani and tossed around a bit in the car. This one has not had any serious play.

    That's what I love about it...has an awesome sound and easy to play. Action is good. Still for sale if you're interested! Have had lots of lookers, but no firm sale yet.

    Thought I had a buyer but the deal fell through. Still available. If it would help, will include shipping to con US in the price.
