Fantastic ukulele... Picked this up last year at the factory. There is a tiny scratch in he finish under the bridge. This is a tone monster! I have too many ukuleles and need to get rid of this one...

New set of Aquila Lava strings on it now and comes with a hardshell case! Josh

$800

Is this a second? Did it have a scratch when you bought it from the factory?

Good luck with the sale.
Besides the scratch, it looks like it is in great condition.
FYI, one swipe of Miracle Cloth should remove all traces of that surface scratch.

This is a factory second. If you look at the label, it says factory special.

I noticed that HMS labeled the KoAloha as factory second with same wording

Thanks JustinJ.
I just did a quick search for "Factory Special KoAloha Tenor" and you can clearly see the sticker here too.

Looks like they still came with a hard shell case and humidifier from HMS even though they are seconds.

Hey Josh,

Nice looking Uke, even as a 2nd ... what was the reason it was sold as a 2nd?

Thanks.

The minor scratch was the reason it was a factory special!

I had another tenor to choose from when I visited the factory and it had a minor imperfection in the wood on the back. I chose this one because it played so well!
