The New KoAloha "Opio" Soprano!!

This is an all solid sapele soprano that will knock you off your feet with classic KoAloha tone. This is Koaloha's new line from their self built Thailand factory! They reconstructed the factory from their original KoAlana line implementing humidity control and extra quality control to present a new and improved affordable offering. This is the brand new KoAloha "Opio" and it's fantastic in sound, feel, and craftsmanship. 

KoAloha's top Hawaiian workers have spent the better part of last year teaching talented Thai wood workers how to be true KoAloha craftsmen. The result is monumental. The response and projection is very similar to their beloved Hawaiian made instruments, but with the warmth and body of sapele.

All sound samples are recorded for the raw, true sound. No effects or enhancement are used. Listen on quality playback to hear the differences.

This satin finish is very clean and professional. Unpretentious and still artful, this is simply a wonderful ukulele. Grab one while they last. This is a limited run and the value is unprecedented!

This batch of Opio's will go down in history as some of the finest ukes ever made. The sound is phenomenal brand new without the woods even breaking in! Within a few years the power in these little instruments will be mind boggling!

We are selling this model with a Canvas covered Hard Case and Humidifier included.

Don't miss out! Grab one now and love it for life!

Options

One of the options for this ukulele is to trade out the Herco HE-360, included humidifier, for the more expensive Oasis Ukulele Humidifier (OH-18) at a discount. This is required if you live in a low humidity area.(parts of California, Nevada, Arizona, etc..) or also areas with winter seasons, especially if you are heating the air in your house. For more info refer to the ukulele care link at the bottom of this page. If you think you need to humidify the instrument, then you also need a hard case for a humidifier to properly work, and you need to maintain the humidifier by refilling it as needed. 

After adding this instrument to your cart, you can still create your own package by adding a case or accessories from the website.

Under the accessories tab you can also customize this instrument by adding strap button(s) or your choice of pickup for plugging in. We recommend either the Misi or the LR Baggs pickup for this ukulele. You can also swap out the stock friction keys for Gotoh UPT geared tuner. This upgrade is recommended for this model.

Get a free shipping quote by adding this to your cart. If your cart reaches $400 dollars or more, orders to the US will receive free FedEX 2 day shipping. 2 days is the time in transit. Your instrument will first go through our setup department so that you get the best instrument for your money. For more information on our setup process, turnaround time, shipping, and return policies, refer to the links below at our footer.

Put a note in the special instructions if you need to or would like to let our setup or shipping department know anything.

Setup Options

 

Current Turnaround Time: Amount of time before shipping-
Full Setup: 3-6 Days
Full Setup RUSH: 2-4 days
Basic QC Only: 2-4 days

Basic Quality Control - $0.00 (Always Free)

BASIC QUALITY CONTROL covers inspecting the instrument for any major defects that would have been missed by the factory and any faults in construction that could potentially damage or limit the functionality of the instrument over time. Any defective instruments are rejected and replaced.  We make sure that each Ukulele meets the basic standard for a brand new instrument and will be ready to play once you receive it. A final cleanup is also included after inspection before packing and shipment.

Full Setup - $40.00 for Ukuleles Under $399 / Free for Ukuleles $399+ 


Includes:


-Overall QC evaluation: To find defects in construction as well as to get an overall view of the instrument and note the areas that need extra attention and adjustment during the setup.

-Saddle Adjustment: The height of the saddle is lowered to reduce the distance between the strings and the fretboard, making it easier to play than the factory setup, especially higher up the fretboard.

-Nut Slot Adjustment: The depth, width, and angle of the nut slots are adjusted to create a more comfortable playing experience especially on the lower frets.

-Fret Dressing: After adjusting the nut and saddle heights, high spots in the fretboard or uneven frets will potentially cause fret buzz, dead spots, or other unwanted problems. The frets are filed to create a more consistent level across the fretboard. We then crown the frets to return their rounded curvature back to the top of each fret creating a clear contact point for each string. We then smooth and polish the frets and condition the fingerboard to bring them back to new condition.

-Final Cleanup: We always do a final overall cleanup of the instrument to make sure it is in new condition and ready to play before it is prepared for shipment.

Rush Setup & Delivery - Additional $50.00
The RUSH SETUP AND DELIVERY service is for customers who would still like to receive everything included in the full setup but on a shorter time frame. One of our setup technicians will work overtime outside of normal business hours to complete the setup within 2-3 days of the order being placed and immediately hand it over to the shipping department for packing and shipment. The $50.00 rush charge is in addition to the cost of the full setup. 

Additional services (see individual product listings to add these services to your order)
Re-stringing: We will replace the factory installed stock string set with a new set of your choosing. Select the “replace stock strings” option when adding your desired string set to the shopping cart.

Strap Button Installation: 1-2 buttons are installed to allow the use of a strap. Color options available. 

Pickup installation: for players who would like the option to play or record with amplification.

Friction Tuner Upgrade (friction tuners only): We offer upgrade options for select instruments with friction tuners to be retrofitted with new geared tuners for better precision and comfort when tuning.

Left-handed Setup: Left-handed setups are also available upon request. Occasionally an additional charge may be added for compensated saddles on select models.
