by any chance, does anyone own or happen to be knowing the feel of the old koaloha models (2015 and earlier (with the koa fretboard) and the new models from 2019/2020?
my dilemma is that I tried a koaloha in early 2020 and it felt AWESOME. I didn’t buy it at the time because I didn’t have the money. now I stumbled over a (not so much used) 2015 koaloha and well I jumped the gun and bought it without seeing it.
aaaanyways it felt different and I am not quite sure if it is due to a different build or because I tried the one in january in a nice shop full of good smelling amazingly awesome and not-cheap ukuleles^^
the thing is, after I’ve been playing it for a few days it DOES feel quite good and plays amazing. I am still not sure because I was expecting that initial spark that I got from the newer one (I know it sounds like I’m talking about a love relationship 😀 😀 ).
so by now it’s mostly a money issue. I’ve been saving up for this for almost a year and I could afford a new model as well. Am I deceived from the new ukulele = better ukulele idea? or is this real?
I do by no means collect ukuleles, why it is no option to save up for a second one.
