Mahalo apparently means Hello in Hawaiian. It is also the brand name for Ukuleles supplied by an outfit called Team International who supply starter instruments produced in China. Their most famous range is this one called "Rock Ukes" with Ukuleles that look a bit like classic Electric GuitarsThe Ukulele itself is reasonably well made. The finish is largely excellent and I would particularly pick out the machine heads and the sunburst finish for praise. On the down side some of the lower frets are a bit rough. The acoustic sound is OK without being anything special, it is what you would expect from a low end basswood laminate Ukulele. The electrics are good though, with a reasonable active pickup under the saddle, (it needs a 9v battery but remember its in and don't let it leak). The tone and volume knobs are usable but a bit small.
All in all it is a good and distinctive first Ukulele and I think I made a good choice picking it as mine, (though if I had my time again I think I would probably get the Blond next time - Mahalo have the Fender blond spot on)
