This ukulele is a tremendous value. Nothing matches it for the price. It was well worth the wait. Now that the strings have settled in the sound is really good; balanced tone and strong volume. This is the first KPK I've gotten, trusting the recommendations of others. KPK Ukuleles are great first ukuleles for the beginner and a good uke to have in a separate place. For instance home and office.

I was surprised at how pretty it is. The abalone binding is eye-catching; it's my first ukulele with ornament. The wood grain is striking, very much like Koa. The fretwork is even and clean. All the frets are finished flush with the neck, no finger-catchers. The finish is kind of open pore semi-gloss, like sprayed but not sanded and polished. At this price point the ukulele stunning. The joint at the bottom of the body is not quite flush, but well within my expectations.

The action is good; no buzzing anywhere. BUT, the action is very low at the nut. I suspect that there might be a buzz if fitted with thicker strings like Aquila or nylon. Fitted strings are Worth CM according to the website. I have the bone nut & saddle. The included gig bag won't win any prizes.

Taken on its own, the sound of this ukulele is balanced and full. Round, not jangly, if that makes any sense. I have compared it to a concert neck Flea and to my ear the KPK is better.

At this price this uke is a crazy good value.
