    Default Koaloha Opio Longneck Concert

    The ukulele came in by Fedex this morning. Perhaps I missed something, but I can't see anywhere on the uke the word "Opio". I heard that they removed it from the head stock, but the label says nothing but Koaloha.

    Is there writing on the left edge of the label? It should say “Made in Thailand” if it’s an Opio and it should say “Made in Hawaii” if it’s a KoAloha. This is a label from a KTM i used to own.

    I wish that they had not made that change; someone is going to get ripped off someday by an unscrupulous seller.

    The label should clearly read “Opio.”

    Doesn’t Fender do the same thing between the Made in USA and Made in Mexico notations as to its guitars?
