Pictures AND Video shows the exact ukulele for sale here.

Black label is the flagship of KoAloha's custom work and it's a rare pleasure for us to show one. This unique and beautiful custom tenor ukulele features gorgeous koa framed off with white mother of pearl and a creative inlay design along the fretboard. It's a one of a kind instrument with a beautiful design and an amazing tone!

Black labels are braced and voiced differently from regular KoAloha's. The sound is warmer and more focused but still has the body and projection KoAloha is loved for.

A number of things set this black label apart from their production line. For one it's built by Paul and Griz. Some of the best custom builders in uke world. But other differences are the shape of the body, the shape of the bridge, the hand-cut inlays, the koa bindings and pearl purfling, the quality of the gloss finish as well as the satin finished neck, the quality of koa and the bracings are also made with hand selected koa. And ultimately the tonal quality is next level. If you can afford to get this uke we guarantee you will love it!

Other features on this ukulele include Macassar ebony bridge, fingerboard and headplate. The neck is slimmer than stock KoAloha's and it's finished in a smooth satin for ultimate feel. The body, of course, is a glassy gloss finish. It has hipshot tuners that are smooth and classy, and also the new KoAloha custom ABS hard case.

This is a rare and unique custom tenor by one of the most loved Hawaiian ukulele makers and it sounds amazing! We interviewed Paul Okami in our weekly podcast about this build and much more here.

Setup Options

Most people shop with us because of the extensive quality control and final setup work we provide at no extra cost on all ukuleles we ship out. However this is time consuming work and creates a delay in shipping. We are now offering an "Expedited Setup" for those wanting to receive their instrument faster. See details on the Full Setup and Expedited Setup options along with current turnaround times for each at the link- HERE.

Extra Options

One of the options for this ukulele is to trade out the Herco HE-360, included humidifier, for the more expensive Oasis Ukulele Humidifier (OH-18 or OH-5+) at a discount. This is required if you live in a low humidity area (parts of California, Nevada, Arizona, etc.) or also areas with winter seasons, especially if you heat the air in your home. For more info refer to the Ukulele Care link at the bottom of this page. If you think you need to humidify the instrument, then you also need a hardcase for a humidifier to properly work, and you need to maintain the humidifier by refilling it as needed. 

This ukulele comes with a low g unless you want high G. There's a checkbox option for that.

After adding this instrument to your cart, you can still create your own package by adding a case or accessories from the website.

Free domestic and international shipping.

Put a note in the Special Instructions if you need to or would like to let our setup or shipping department know anything.
