Kala has released the 2016 collection of its California-made Elite series. The 2016 lineup is comprised of three different series: Elite Koa Ukulele 1, 2, and 3.
“Each series from 1 to 3 offers their own distinct and striking Hawaiian Koa wood patterns with each level revealing an increasing amount of flame and figuring,” Kala writes. “The Koa 1 Ukulele Series is available in satin or UV high-gloss finish while the Koa 2 and 3 Ukulele Series feature UV high-gloss finishes. Specifications for each series include all solid Hawaiian Koa top, back and sides, Honduran Mahogany necks, oval Mother of Pearl fret position markers, Kala Custom Tuners, Graphtech Tusq Nut and Bone Saddle, and Kala Flourocarbon strings with string through bridge design.”
All three are available in soprano, concert, and tenor sizes.
