EDIT: Closed because I decided to offer the KoAloha T2 the "normal" way – chances are too slim to find such a specific trade partner I'm afraid ...

Hi everybody,

I don't know if this even makes sense or if this offer is much too specific to have any chance to find the right "counterpart" trader – anyway, here we go: I have a KoAloha KSM-T2 "giraffe" (soprano body, tenor neck) to offer. Bought from Hawaiian Music Supply, perfect condition, perfect fitting hardcase included. I'd like to trade the T2 for a KoAloha Tenor Slimline KTMS-00 (without the pickup) which is in the same price ballpark – of course, also in the same perfect condition as my KSM-T2. To make the chances of this trade even more slimmer: I need a trader from Europe, I guess, as otherwise, the tax office probably would force me to pay 19% German taxes on top of the worth of the traded KTMS-00 – or at least make a lot of problems that I have to prove it was a trade and not a purchase I try to disguise (please correct me if I am wrong with this).

Of course, I can provide more and better pictures if somebody's interested (the photos below were quickly and poorly shot by me to provide a first look). If somebody doesn't have a KTMS-00 to trade, but is interested in buying a KSM-T2, he/she can also contact me anytime, of course. In this case, I would maybe go the way to first sell my T2 and then search for a used KTMS-00 elsewhere.

Thanks for taking your time to read this.

EDIT: After having a second thought about it and to increase my trading chances – I am also open for other offers for a nice tenor in the same price league, KoAloha or other brands.
