Koa ukuleles are my favorite ukuleles. I love the look and sound of them. Unfortunately, I'm not so keen on the price tag. Koa Pili Koko ukuleles are made from Acacia wood (a close relative of koa) and look at sound almost identical to koa. However, the wood is much more abundant, and therefore cheaper, than koa wood.
These Koa Pili Koko ukuleles are definitely on my shopping list (it's a big list).
