First thing you'll notice about the Kala KA-PWC Pacific is its walnut top, back and sides, which give it a very earthy and unique look. In addition to giving it a distinct appearance, the use of walnut tonewood also gives the instrument a distinct voicing, described as crisp and focused.

This uke also comes with subtle cosmetic appointments that include body binding to enhance its overall look.
