    Default Kala KA-SCG or Kala KA-C

    Is it better to get Kala KA-SCG over KA-C ? Is it worth extra $?

    I've got a KA-C and it's a perfectly adequate instrument. Without having both instruments side-by-side it'd be difficult to make a judgement of value, however if you prefer the lighter wood to the dark wood, (or vice versa), then it's a decision only you can make

    If memory serves, the KA-C is a standard entry level laminate mahogany ukulele, a small step up from Kala's entry level MK-C (I own a MK-CE). If you are going for budget with similar sound, put the MK-C on your list of Kala choices, too.

    The SCG has a solid spruce top and gloss finish, and should be a significantly louder ukulele than the KA-C (Spruce projects as a tone wood). While The Ukulele Site has been cutting back instruments that they offer through their website, the KA-SCG is still listed ($157), which tells you something about how they feel about it--they no longer carry the KA-C on their website (although it is likely still available in their store).

    Good luck on whatever you decide!

    I don't think there would be much in it weight wise.
    Sound wise, I'd go for the solid top uke.
    (Nothing wrong with either uke.)

    So it'll be win-win for you. A look that appeals and better sound from the solid top.

    50 bucks for a solid spruce top and a gloss finish? I wouldn't even consider the cheaper one. But don't know anything about your needs or means.
