I was totally set on only getting a koa uke, but ended up with a mahogany (Pohaku, made by a guy in Berkeley, CA) because I loved the sound. Both woods are good options, but I always feel that tone should outweigh looks (even though ukulele = Hawaii = koa). Play a bunch; buy what speaks to you! Enjoy!You guys are killing me with these gorgeous Koa ukes! I was set on mahogany, but now I'm not so sure.
