For now I no longer offer Kala, but I have been going through my dead stock and realized I have a limited amount of Kalas that got put on my repair shelf, even though they had nothing wrong with them. So I am dropping the price and getting them moved on to my customers. It will get the same great set-ups that I give all my ukuleles! So if you want a Kala with a Mim set-up, now is your chance.
**This one has a scratchy finish on the back on the ukulele. I will try to buff it out before shipping it to you. I tried to take a picture but it is hard to capture it. But I think someone set it flat on a table and it got scratched up. But at least it is on the back and you are still saving a lot of money!**
Ziricote is one of the most beautiful and unique woods available! The detail of this wood grain is amazing. The pictures do not do it justice because I am not very good at photographing gloss. So if you think it is beautiful in the picture, just know you will love it even more when you have it in your hands! And each one will be a unique ukulele and one of a kind. It is a very striking wood and super pretty! It is laminate so it is great for travel, a starter uke, and for stability in all sorts of temperature and humidity conditions. It will be loud, punchy, and full. You will get a pretty ukulele with a pretty gloss finish that brings out all the beautiful nuances of this wood. With a great set up and it punchy ukulele sound, you will be very pleased with the quality and playability of this ukulele. I believe every ukulele deserves a great setup and this one will be no exception.
And of course it will be set up with the same care that my high end ukes are set up with for easy and buzz free playability. The action will be comfortable and easy for beginners to fret and it will even make it easier to learn the more difficult barre chords. I am known for my set-up and so you will get a worry free purchase knowing this ukulele will be in great shape since it is coming from Mim! I am known in the uke community for my thorough set up, fast turn around time, and customer service.
