    Well, a small part of my post made the trip. Let's see if I can get the rest of it.

    Baz did it to me again. After reading his review, I didn’t have a chance. I went to the Southern Ukulele site and clicked on Buy.

    This look beautiful, and it sounds beautiful. As you can see in the review, the case itself is a work of art, and it comes with a D’Addario humidifier.

    The people at the Southern Ukulele Store are very nice to deal with. Take a look at their site sometime.

    Damn it, you beat me to it! My Kanile'a SUS Concert arrives tomorrow. I got hooked in because of the sale Southern Ukulele Store had. Plus they're my favourite uke shop by far. Such lovely people. Alex from SUS has his own Youtube channel nowadays. You should check that out as well: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCmh...QfoxbKutkGLFQg

    Congrats on the new uke! I'm itching to try mine. Not doubting the quality of a Kanile'a for a second but I'm really curious how this compares to my K1.

    That's a beauty. Do you also have a standard koa K1-T? If so, how do you find the sound to differ, if at all?

    Thanks. When did you order yours? I ordered mine on 10/8, and I received it on 10/19 because of the delay over import fees. I haven't compared the sound to my other K-tenor or KoAloha tenor, but I didn't buy it because it's going to sound better than another uke. I'm sure it sounds different, but the sound is beautiful, as you would expect from a first class ukulele.

    SUS doesn't show the one I got now, just the Deluxe version. It's fancier, but I like the standard looks better. The finish is beautiful. I'll have to be careful playing it.

    I don't know anything about the K1, but I have a Honu tenor. I'll have to compare the sounds.

    I ordered it a bit over a week ago so later than you. It's at the post office at the moment waiting for me to pick it up but I don't have time until later today.

    I'm not expecting it to sound necessarily better than koa Kanile'as or other similar ukes either, rather I'm curious how the sound differs. This is my first cedar top uke as well so I'm extra curious. I'll have to start testing different strings on it immediately.

    I like the look and sound of cedar, but I generally leave the original strings on my ukes. The strings on mine will take a lot of stretching.

    I'm curious, why did you blame your UAS on Baz? He's just the messenger!
    I hope you're enjoying it.
    Maybe you should stop watching Baz.....

    Baz is an enabler. Shame on him for reviewing so many excellent instruments and making us crave them.
    There is a subtle yet profound difference between the learning of something and the knowing of that thing.
    You can learn by reading, but you don’t begin to know until you begin to try to do.
