As part of Kala's Elite USA series, this 3KOA-TG tenor ukulele is made in their Petaluma, CA workshop.
While Kala is best known for their entry-level ukuleles, the craftsmanship on their US-made Elite models is top-notch. We feel the Kala Elite ukuleles are in the same class as famous builders like Kamaka and Martin.
The tenor-sized 3KOA-TG has a handful of upgrades over the simpler 1KOA-T:
- Figured koa body
- Ebony fingerboard and bridge
- Gold tuners with acacia buttons
- Black body binding
- Hard case
We ordered this ukulele with a 1-3/8" nut, which is closer to a standard ukulele than the 1.5" nut found on most Kala Elite models.
