Kala KA-FMTB-C Flamed Maple Concert Ukulele Tobacco Sunburst Finish
We love this KA-FMTB-C flamed maple concert ukulele from Kala. The laminate flamed maple is a fantastic throwback to the cherry sunburst guitars of the 1960s and tobacco burst guitars of the banner era bluesman of old!
It looks great but also sounds lovely with a slight sizzle and bubbly tone. A perfect uke for all elements that doesn't suffer from the classic weightless tone a lot of other laminates at this price can have.
I also like the machineheads which are a really smart delta blues-esque open gear plate with an aged finish.
