Hello I wanted to see if anyone has interest in buying or trading a nice K uke and some cash for my Kinnard Sunburst mahogany tenor. This is a peghead version of the kinnard that Doc owns and is well known here. It is a impeccably built ukulele, series 2 tortoise binding, mahogany tobacco sunburst, aloha twin, guardian case. This uke new would cost $2500-2600. There are a few strum marks in the finish on the upper bout. Again the only reason I am considering parting with this work of art is I still am looking for a nice Hawaiian Tenor (it's a sentimental thing). Here are the pics! If interested send an offer for $, trade, or $ and trade. Only tenors for trade please.

I don't have the money right now for this ... but it is SWEETNESS ... how does it sound? Does it come with a radius like all Kinnards?

It sounds great very clear but mellow, yet it can bark if you want to. Sort of like a better built, better sounding and balanced, better finished old Martin tenor with a Sunburst ;)
I actually can't see a radius or really feel one seems pretty flat to me but is very comfy to play.

Edit. There is a radius

Thanks for clarifying ... it looks wonderful. Good luck with it.

To correct my earlier statement upon looking at it further there does seem to be a very slight radius in the fretboard probably the compound radius on most Kinnard Ukes.
