Hi,

One of my friends wants to buy a Taylor Uke badly, but it is quite hard to find one. Does anyone know any available? I only know it is limited edition, sold as a set with a Taylor guitar.

Thanks,
Cecilia

Funny I just happened to see this uke for sale. Unfortunately you must buy the guitar and uke as a set for 5 grand. It's here: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.1069674319711744.1073742413.199944066684778&type=3

As I recall, Taylor made very few, and they were built and sold only as part of a uke/guitar set.

I guess you could buy the set and sell the guitar, but they are probably worth more as a set. only 50 of these mahog sets were made. mighty fine looking uke too. I have a Loprinzi sunburst mahog I'd sell for much less. Probably not as perfect as the Taylor, but it has a misi too. just sayin these Taylors are probably priced more than they are worth because of the limited supply. good luck though, I'll keep my eyes peeled.

i got to try one that someone brought to a uke fest. nice uke--plays very similarly to a nice Kanilea

I also got to play one owned by a fellow student and Asilomar this year. It sounded great and probably the most comfortable and natural balance and neck of any uke I have tried to date. The owner had also bought the set just for the uke and sold the guitar.

This is a tempting deal. You may not see another for a long while.

Aloha, thanks for your reply. I think my friend likes the design and the look of Taylor ukes, haha.

I know that there is a relationship between Kanilea and Taylor on UV finish, do you think Kanilea built the Taylor ukulele?

Getting a Kanilea may be the next best thing.

No problem! By the way, Kim Sherman at Cotten Music runs a fantastic store and is awesome to deal with! Good luck to your friend.

I was blessed enough to acquire one without having to buy the accompanying guitar. I do have a couple of Taylor guitars as well, though, and they welcomed the little guy with open sound holes :D

Hi Tanman,

Yah, I got in touch with Cotten Music, so nice. But my friend only wants to buy the uke, while the seller wants to sell the set together. Anyway, thanks :)

I have a Taylor Mahogany Tenor that I would be willing to sell. I looks, plays and sounds beautiful. PM me for the details if interested.

Thanks,

Hi Len, thanks, but it seems that my friend has given up to buy a koa one. He heard that it is very close to Kanile'a.
