    here's some more koa stuff to look at made by a local guy - I say look at because his prices are a little much, but the work he does is amazing. I'd love to have a koa URB...

  6. I may check out a Goodall...after I build my house in two years. Or a Lowden or a...... ;)

    All koa acoustics sound very different. I think the only way to go is with a guitar body that accentuates bass as koa is relatively bass shy.

  11. Once again I get ripped off. I was told it was a short scale 6 string acoustic bass tuned an octave high! I'm such a dope.

    FWIW, I do slap and pop harmonics and chords on this thing.
