Kala Solid Spruce Top Concert Gloss (KA-SCG)

Product Review (submitted on April 26, 2017):
After playing a laminated mahogany concert for a year I wanted to move up. I did a lot of research on the Internet and kept coming back to HMS, because of their reputation for service and excellent setups. I ordered my KALA KA-SCG from HMS in January of this year. Andrew, Joel, and Aaron were very helpful. I described the way I play in an e-mail to Joel and when the KALA arrived the setup was right on. I wasn't prepared for how bright and loud the KA-SCG would be. It's the spruce top and the Aquila Super Nylgut strings. I swapped out the Aquilas for less bright strings and the more I play this little jewel, the more I love it. The action is terrific, the sustain is great and it has no intonation problems. Did I mention the neck is super fast. The finish is beautiful โ€“ the urethane looks like it's 1/4โ€ deep. This is a great Uke. It has made me a better player. Thanks HMS. When I'm ready for that Pono I'll be back.
