    Good-oh. On behalf of your comment, I now have an all-solid-hog Ohana pineapple tenor on its way from AlohaCityUkes. Thanks to the nth for your prompt answer AND for all your excellent reviews!!!

    P.S. Since the new pineapple is a tenor, & I name all my ukes, I have decided to name it Placido (after Placido Domingo).

    Barry, what about “solid acacia?” Warm, like walnut and Mahogany?

    Acacia (much like Hawaiian Koa) I always find has a mix of all things. Very rich tone - highs AND lows.

    Barry, when you received your Kai KTI tenor to review, did it require a setup, or just fine out of the box?

    2nd question: Is Thomann over in the UK considered a big box store, like Amazon Sweetwater or Musician’s Friend, over here?

    Thomann’s offer their Kai’s at a much lower price, than SU and others, but a set up is around $55 and delays shipping a few days.

    So you can see why I am asking the first question.

    Thank you
    Terry

    It was fine - however.... over here the KTI distibutor is a company called 'Stones Music'. He is renowned for setting up his instruments even before they are delivered to the stores. Add to which this came on loan from a store here called World of Ukes, who ALSO check setup carefully... as such, it was going to be highly unlikely this wouldn't arrive perfect on that front...

    Can't speak for Thomann, but I DO consider them a big box shipper - what arrives from them will not have been opened since it arrived from the factory.
