Kala KA-SSTU-T Tenor Travel Ukulele

Product Review (submitted on December 30, 2012):
I know I'm the odd review out, but I think this is important to share.

I could not believe the uke that I saw was on the floor of our local dealer! The action was obscenely high because the thin body was actually warping forward because of the tension of the strings.
Certainly I saw an anomalous particularly bad instrument, (I live in the Pacific NW which may also be hard on instruments with the moisture and forced heat). Perhaps this situation wasn't being improved any by our local store seemingly not attempting to remedy the uke,..

However, seeing the state of that travel uke totally scared me away from the thin body concept. Sorry.

The price on the uke site seems very good, and I totally trust their set up process to send off a solid instrument. For sure that should be very reassuring to those still interested, and may make all the difference.

Still... guess what,.. a ukulele is "travel sized" by it's nature!! Get a good concert or soprano, even tenors aren't that big in their normal dimensions.
