The pictures do not do justice to how beautiful the wood and, overall, this instrument is. Every detail is good about this instrument. The top is solid wood so the sound has good projection & is very pleasant. The sealed tuners are an added bonus. The instrument doesn't get out-of-tune easily like cheaper Ukes. This is my 1st Uke and I love KALA now! I highly recomment this instrument because of its sound and looks!!!
