    I champion the research and development they've put in to this all carbon fiber ukulele. From the video, it sounds pretty good too. But, am I the only one that thinks the very small headstock looks so disproportionate to the rest of the ukulele? It just looks odd to me.

    Yes I agree that the headstock could be a bit bigger. I've mentioned that to their marketing, but they feel most people like it, and it is part of their "travel" brand to keep things as short as possible.

    Well I am in the liking the headstock camp as are most of my friends who see my Klos uke for the first time. Not only does it look just plain cute but also it is quite distinctive.

    I think a 4% increase from 25" (the current size) to 26" (my Farallon's dimensions) would be tolerable.
