    I love the roundness and the thick waist! I'd be tempted if I hadn't just got a baritone.

    I had an earlier Kelali Fir/Mahogany baritone that I enjoyed. It had an excellent rich harmonic sound, with a very professional fit and finish. This is an excellent value in a USA hand built instrument. If I didn't already have Kinnard, Mya-moe, Mason, Larrivee and Graziano spruce topped baritones already I would definitely try this one. You might also try listing on fleamarketmusic marketplace.

    Thanks for the kudos, I will try the fleamarketmusic as well. This one has the Living Waters strings per your recommendation.

    I have two Kelali baritones made by Kevin from 2020. A curly redwood/curly fiddleback maple I bought from Ebay and a curly port orford cedar/curly walnut I bought from a fellow UU'er. Both of my baris sound distinct with open tone, great projection and sustain. Great playability too! Kevin's craftsmanship is clean and precise. He was very responsive and patient answering all my questions about his ukes, even the one I bought from another UU'er. It's great to see his new models have added features like additional decorative adornments and carbon fiber rods in their necks. Whoever buys this beauty will have a quality, lovingly crafted baritone with, what I bet will be, an awesome sound to cherish.
