    I have a solid koa Alulu tenor that I am very delighted with. No complaints whatsoever. Intonation (I'm VERY picky on this), resonation and sustain are great.
    Not enough guitars.
    Not enough ukuleles.
    Not enough time.

    I have a Alulu guitarlele (6 string) that is well made, all solid spruce/maple, lovely inlay work and sounds great, also have 2 Bruce Wei tenors, all solid woods, 1 in koa and 1 in mahogany which are even better; in contrast I recently acquired a Kala which in comparison is quite ordinary, though not the same specs of course....

    Don't mean to necropost but I've been seriously considering one of these as well...I was glad to find this thread. It was helpful. I think I might get one ofb their concert pineapples. I have been looking for one and this one fits my price range, technical requirements, and aesthetic preferences.
    Soprano: Eddy Finn EF-25-S and Mahalo (my "Little Blue")
    Concert: Kala KA-FMC, Cordoba UP-100, Luna Flower Acoustic/Electric, Alulu UKC Pineapple
    Tenor: Fender Hau'oli

    I recently bought one of their hawaiian koa soprano ukes. There were a few minor imperfections but a solid wood acacia koa soprano WITH a slothead and a great sound (intionation+action aswell) made it a well spent 200 dollars in my opinion.

    Taisamlu Baritone guitarlele

    OWN NOW:
    Lanikai Monkey Pod Tenor
    Bruce Wei CUSTOM koa ukulele
