Hi Guys !
- After having one last noodle on these - I have decided to keep them both. They are just too good to part with -

After much thought, I have decided I would like to thin down my collection a bit, and concentrate on learning to play the ukulele, rather then just collect them These are the two Makapli that I have, and find it is time to re-home.
The concert pineapple was purchased used, here on UU several years ago, and is made of acacia I believe . The other is a custom I had Thomas make for me, when he was up here in the Pacific Northwest a few years ago. Concert Pineapple body with tenor neck, that I have tuned Baritone DGBE, mahogany with Sinker Redwood top (not Cedar) - Withdrawn from sale plus shipping. Thank You for looking! Ed 8934389344

Good Luck with the sale.

I just wanted to point out that the long neck tenor as a Sinker Redwood top, not Cedar.

Take Care,

Hi Guys,
There has been a lot of interest in the Makapili ukulele I am offering up for sale, Yes - to answer your questions, - I had been looking for a Makapili for quite some time, and couldn't believe my eyes when this concert acacia came up available used here on UU - like finding a Stradivarius at a garage sale!
and yes, I am asking more for it now - then I paid for it then. - and I feel it is still an amazing bargain and worth much more -
- the listing here on Marketplace when I bought it years ago:
