    very cool. I've heard great things about the Kala Acacia, so you couldn't have picked a better beginner uke IMO. I have a kala sprucetop that was my beginner uke... many an evening with friends has been spent alongside that ukulele.

    That's a purty one, I dig the "blonde streak". Congratulations! The acacia tenor is high on my UAS list.

    Welcome to the club. Its a pretty one for sure. The blond streak is cool.

    I've had fun playing mine- it was a totally different sound from my concert uke. So much louder! Mine took a fair bit of time to get the strings to settle in where they would stay in tune. Now it is pretty steady. Enjoy!

    I have one and love it too. I don't play it all that often because I prefer sopranos, but I really like the look and sound of the acacia and I LOVE the slotted headstock.

    I particularly like how the "blonde streak" is on both the front AND back.
