This is the Elite Series 2 Gloss concert made entirely in Petaluma, California. It has a 15.5" concert scale and projects like a tenor. The sound is big and bright with a vintage style voicing. The feel is great and this one has the thinner 1 3/8" nut width like their import models. Normally Kala Elites are 1.5" at the nut. This neck is also more slender than their regular USA models. These aspects give this model a classic look and feel.
The 2 series from Kala's Elite line has upgraded koa wood for more figuring and curl. This is shown off beautifully by their gloss finish. The same UV finish that other companies like Kanile'a or Taylor Guitars uses. It's a smooth, glassy, perfect finish; Kala keeps the neck satin for smooth sliding and comfort. The koa on this one is extra gorgeous and curls as you move it in the light.

This ukulele is considerably more expensive than any of Kala's imports, but it's still a great value because of its musical quality and the craftsmanship.
