OVERVIEW

A fun ukulele with a distinctive, traditional pineapple shape.

It's easy to tell that the Mahalo U-320P is Hawaii's favorite instrument — it's shaped like a pineapple. It corresponds exactly in every respect to the standard Mahalo U-320, save for the distinctive, traditional pineapple shape. The tone is mellow and soulful — thanks to the well-shaped neck and rosewood fingerboard with its smooth, low frets. The bridge is also rosewood and the body is mahogany with arched back. The tuning pegs are gold-plated and each U-320P is furnished with a sturdy gig bag and an easy-to follow instructional DVD. With all these great features and the instantly recognizable shape — the Mahalo U-320P is destined for great things.

Includes a gig bag.

Comments about Mahalo U-320P DELUXE PINEAPPLE SOPRANO UKULELE:

Intonation is not good. If you can't fix it yourself, be prepared to pay more than it cost originally to have it fixed.
Good construction, nice tone. Too bad they didn't pay more attention to the intonation (difference between open and fretted notes).

Comments about Mahalo U-320P DELUXE PINEAPPLE SOPRANO UKULELE:

Guitar player for many years, decided to get a Ukulele as an addition to my recording studio. I realize that these instruments are mostly for 'fun', however I believe that if you buy one, it should at least be in tune when strings are played 'open' (not fretted), and fretted. There is no consistency in this respect on this instrument. Maybe Mahalo thinks if you buy a cheap instrument, you don't deserve to have one that is in tune with itself. On the positive, it is very well made, and has a nice finish. Appears to be much more expensive than it is, which makes the terrible intonation even more perplexing. Mine arrived damaged, so I have returned it for an exchange. I only hope that the tuning issue was specific to this instrument, and not all of them. We shall see when the replacement arrives.

    I think this ukulele is good for the price. It just came un-tuned and that was a pain re-tuning it but it sound outstanding. If your thinking about buying it, do it, you wont regret it.

        I love this ukulele. My wife is getting super good at playing it and we both love the sound quality. I have noticed that it gets out of tune but read this is common in the cold winter months.

        Fun Uke at an Easy Price

        By Donald Knott

        from California

        Comments about Mahalo U-320P DELUXE PINEAPPLE SOPRANO UKULELE:

        I actually own two of these. I was very pleased with the first one, so much so that I acquired both the tenor and a baritone uke in the same series. I accidentally banged my first Mahalo U-320P and loosened the neck-to-body joint. Obviously paying the repair guy at my local favorite shop was not a cost effective solution. His time would be core than the instrument cost new. So, I ordered a replacement.
        It arrived promptly and I quickly noticed that the two instruments were not identical. Far from it. The first was exactly as it appears on the Musicians Friend web site and on the Mahalo Web site. Though simply built, the joins were clean and symmetrical, The friction pegs needed a little tightening before they would hold, but that was all.
        The second instrument had open machine tuners, and very ugly ones at that. Great, knobby, very "Chinese" looking things mounted by metal plates cut in the shape of fanciful dolphins. These same tuners are shown on the Mahalo web site and are used on some of their more whimnsical lines. As I said, I found the tuners ugly, but they worked. The new instrument is quicker and easier to tune than the old one with the friction pegs.
        There were other cosmetic differences as well, both good and "bad". The instrument is built of mahogany ply. The first instrument appeared quite plain with a "once piece" back and top, The second one appeared with the outer ply of the back bookmatched, a small cosmetic plus.
        The older instrument exhibits a "classical guitar" style neck to headstock join producing the effect of a parabola of contrasting wood grain centered on the neck. On the newer instrument the join is a little off symmetry-wise. The peak of the headstock of the newer instrument showed the effects off some hasty rasping and sanding, perhaps to correct a flaw in the wood. It has no effect on the sound or playability of the instrument.
        All told, the differences, both good and bad between the two instruments simply reflect economic reality. These are budget priced commodity grade instruments. If a stock of parts runs short there may well be substitions or compromises as needed to keep production going.
        If you want an inexpensive uke for a beach party banger this is a great choice. It is cheap, simple in appearance, and it plays reasonably in tune, as long as you get one with a compensated bridge, another specification that might change without notice, (as I discovered when acquiring my baritone.)
        This is a straightforward and simply appointed economy instrument .
        At the modest price that this instrument sells for one should not expect miracles. The action is comfortable, the intonation is acceptable, and the appearance is "quaint".
        No uke at this price [point is going to have fancy inlays or a fine finish. The fact that this one sounds decent and looks decent is value enough
