I would highly recommend this ukulele to anyone who is just starting the ukulele. It is great for starters. It is pretty cheap, so when I bought it I ought it just to try it out. I wasnt conscerned about it being electric-acoustic or anything fancy, I just wanted to try it out and see whether I liked it before I bought it. It is pretty basic, so if you are a proficient ukulele player I would not recommend it. I ended up loving it after I bought it and I tell people all the time, "Its a nice ukulele for a low price. If you are going to learn, start with this ukulele."

Got a good deal on it. Wanted something that I could have at work that I wouldn't be upset about if it got lost or damaged. This fit the bill.

Got a good deal on it. Wanted something that I could have at work that I wouldn't be upset about if it got lost or damaged. This fit the bill.

Action - The action was way high which would cause intonation issues while chording. My solution was to remove the bridge insert and grind it down .075ths. This brought it down to where it was almost level with the bridge itself. This made all the difference in playability. *I will note that it is possible that the action issue could have just been on my specific Uke.

Tone - The tone is a little hollow. I have another Uke that I keep at home that has a much better tone that projects better. Playing this one rings out better if using a pick rather than finger strumed.

I like the finish on it which is suited well to some hand drawn embelishments. I wouldn't even think of doing this on a more expensive instrument.

        Decent tuning machines on a low end Uke make this a good quality instrument right out of the box. To be honest tuning and Uke's aren;t really ment to coincide, so unless your ready to step up to a real nice qaulity Uke....this one is Great. Price/performer!!

            Comments about Kohala KO-S Kine'O Soprano Ukulele:

            Really hard to tune well. Some of the frets are placed a bit out of tune, so no matter how well it is tuned open, when you chord it, it's off a bit. Maybe good strings would help. A step up from a toy. Pay a little more and get a quality instrument.

              This is my first uke, and I absolutely love it!I named her Paka. It sounds nice, it looks good, and it's tons of fun to play. My only complaint is that my C string sometimes sounds weird, but I'm told that usually you replace all the strings it came with after awhile with newer/better strings, once you've played it for awhile. Over all I love this little ukulele.

                  This is a pretty decent little ukulele. I bought it as a beater instrument to throw in the car with me when traveling, but it has a nice big sound, and seems pretty sturdy. Tuners are tight, and once the strings stretch out, they keep intonation just fine. There a lot of flaws in the construction and finish of the instrument, and there are a number of buzzy frets, but all and all, for the price, it plays well.

                  Comments about Kohala KO-S Kine'O Soprano Ukulele:

                  Overall I reccomend this to anytone looking to start out on the Uke. I have been a guitar player for 6 years and wanted to expand my musical pallet.
                  Everything you expect from a good starter Uke.Comes with a book. Although I wish it came with a gigbag or something.
                  I gave this a 6 because although this Uke plays and sounds GREAT, there are some minor issues.The inlays on the fretboard were a little messed up.Some minor inperfections in the finish and the paint around the fretboard was messed up.Other then that the thing plays great.
                  Great value for a starter. Good tonewood. I was happy because its not made out of plywood.Although again, it could have come with a gigbag.
