This KoAloha Opio Concert Long Neck Ukulele KCO-02 "Marilyn" is gorgeous.
Marilyn became a Factory Special during shipment when some slight damage was done to the top point of the crown on the headstock (see photo). Because of this you will receive a 15% discount off the normal price $591, but this instrument is still covered by the "Better Than The Weather" KoAloha lifetime warranty.
This KoAloha Long Neck Concert is so beautiful I had to find a name to match, and I couldn't think of anyone who symbolized beauty more than Marilyn Monroe.
Every so often you get a wood grain that stands out from the rest. Most ukulele companies call this "premium." This one is it. As you can see from the photos the top, back, and sides all have a one of a kind wood grain.
This is a concert body size with a tenor length neck. A very cool and unique look and feel for this KoAloha ukulele.
The Opio series from KoAloha has now evolved to a more beautiful in look and with a classic big bright tone KoAloha is known for. They now have this gorgeous all solid figured acacia body in a light gloss finish, making them nearly indistinguishable to their Hawaiian Koa line.
KoAloha's top Hawaiian workers have spent the last few years teaching these talented Thai wood workers how to be true KoAloha craftsmen. The result is monumental. The sound and feel is extremely similar to their beloved Hawaiian made instruments, but with a much more affordable cost.
