Closed. Thanks to UU for having some top dollar 5 strings but bigger thanks to the fine fellow from Flea Market Music for letting go of a Ohana 5 string from his collection of Ukes for a great price!

FYI - I was interested in getting this, but I can't afford to make the investment at this time having just bought a used Mya Moe on here.

Not in my budget as well, fine uke though! I had a boat paddle offer for 1k but again, not in my budget..

It seems in my limited research there are a few models in $300 -$400 range that appear to be hit or miss based on reviews. From there, it seems 1K is the starting point for the better ones. Hopefully you can find a nice used one.

Definitely checked hawaii music supply first, saw that. Thanks, yeah I'd rather just like you said put that money towards hopefully finding a nice used one. I'm not opposed to going with the lower range($) 5 strings "for the right deal" on one though either...

Still seeking!

Anyone on here have a 5 string they'd be willing to part with? Let's discuss the details, PM me or drop me a line here please & thanks!

I am really trying to keep all options open, minus spending an arm and a leg(keep it well under a grand and if spending upwards in that range it better include the price of a nice pickup/install). I've looked at the Kala 5 string, but I personally don't see the appeal of slotted headstocks and Kala has been known to have quality issues depending on which distributor you buy from. Oscar Schmidt has the Willie K 5 string but again, cheap laminate, mixed reviews tone wise, and the I'd rather install different electronics then the budget fishman pickup they cut a hole in the side of the uke to fit. The Ohana 5 string seems the best bet, but at ~$250 used it is still on the lower end of my budget and I'd like to spend more for something higher quality/better build. Let me know if you have anything that fits the bill, thanks

I have an all-walnut 5 string tenor by Rob Collins that I can't really play anymore as my hands are getting weaker :(

Bump, getting some nice 600$+ offers but again don't feel comfortable spending that much with my budget(may I note I will also be factoring in an additional couple hundred $$ on getting a Baggs pickup/install)

I have a superb one for sale.It's a custom Kanilea Super Concert 5 string with premium master koa. But it would take your arm and leg to get it! PM me if you are interested.
