    Ordered from the Ukulelesite. Requested it be set up with a high G (it comes with a low from the factory). I am just a beginner and felt that was he way to go.

    Haha, awesome! My second uke was a Pono Pro Classic Acacia Tenor from The Ukulele Site. Had it for two years, then I bought a KoAloha directly from KoAloha and sold my Pono. I would not go back because KoAloha's are more comfortable to play for myself. Oh, and I had KoAloha re-string it to a high G as well, LOL. I think you made the right choice. The Opio Acacia's look and sound amazing.

    OK......Not helping..... Just got the email that my order will be shipping on or about the 13th, THE 13TH!!!!! Really not a problem though. I appreciate the care and diligence of getting the Uke set up properly... If anyone hasn't watched the Ukulelesites video on setups I would recommend checking it out. That kind of service is worth the wait.
