    Default Recommendations for all solid Cedar top concert

    Would like some recommendations for an all solid Cedar top concert uke plus solid wood back.....no laminate. Already know about Ohanas but would like some other great recommendations. Thanks.

    HMS has a nice looking Kala, solid cedar top, solid Pau Fero body concert for $299. I think they also have a cedar top Kanile’a if your budget is bigger.

    Might be difficult to get one of these over to USA (but possible) - they are wonderful ukuleles https://www.gotaukulele.com/2018/10/...r-ukulele.html

    Failing that, or wanting something cheaper - Mainland Red Cedar top - lovely instruments!

    I can't believe that Kanile'a is still available. It's stunning.

    Mim has a Cedar top Ohta-San which is another dream instrument

    I had two almost identical tenors - a Pono cedar/something and a Kala cedar/acacia. I realized that I didn't need two almost identical ukes, so I examined and listened to each. Without a doubt, I preferred the sound of the Kala, which cost under $300 new. So, I sold the Pono.

    Some months later, I wanted to cut back on what I had, so I sold then Kala to a friend. I regretted it almost immediately, and I bought another. Since that time, I have bought identical 6-string and 8-string Kalas. So, making a recommendation is easy for me: Concert Kala KA-ACP-CTG. It's very easy to find a new one ($270). The tenor costs just $10 more.

    Mint condition for $192 - https://reverb.com/item/28312457-kal...ar-acacia-used

    That is a beauty, but it doesn't seem to be available anywhere. I'm guessing it was a limited edition.

    I second Baz's recommendation of the Mainland Cedar/Rosewood ukes. That Kala KA-ACP-CTG is SO pretty, but I've never played any Kala's before. What kind of budget are you working with? What size are you looking for?

    Made by Kevin in N. California:

    100% positive feedback, that's a good start. Never heard of Kevin, not an endorsement, price is reasonable IMO. Anyone know his work?
