All NEW KoAloha Opio Ukulele Series for 2016

It was January 2016 at the winter NAMM (National Association of Music Merchants) show when I found out about the new KoAloha Opio. I was very excited to find out KoAloha was using solid acacia and were implementing a satin semi-gloss finish on these. Surely this would be a winner.

Well fast forward into spring 2016 and we received our first shipments of these new KoAloha Opios and I must say we are very impressed. The first look and play on these ukuleles said it all!

KoAloha Opio All Solid Acacia Concert Ukulele
  • The fit and finish are top notch. KoAloha is making these in Thailand but with trained luthiers building the KoAloha way with KoAloha's molds and jigs. The tonewood is solid acacia which looks and sounds very close to its Hawaiian koa relative but priced at a fraction of the cost.
The KoAloha Opio Series Features: Signature Musubi Soundhole, Signature Orange Etched Friction Tuners, Etched Headstock Logo, and Signature KoAloha Embossed Rosewood Bridge.
  • The sound is all KoAloha. Rich with plenty of projection we all love. The sustain lingers and lilts, like an ocean wave.
  • Playability is once again total KoAloha. Easy, lean, fast neck that's perfect for any style of player. Strum it, pick it and you'll feel how good these really are.
Currently, KoAloha offers these new Opios in soprano standard, concert, and tenor.
