I've been playing the ukulele for about 3 years now and have fallen in love with playing old jazz tunes on it. I'm a musician in the San Antonio area and am working up a set of jazz tunes to perform locally. I love the warm, clean sound of the archtop electric guitar and have been in search of a ukulele with a similar sound. If you have anything that fits that description and are willing to part with it for a fair price let me know!

Looking for something like this (but can't afford a new one):

Or this:

Thanks!

Wow... I just responded to Harpo808, who's also looking for an Evolve E-3. This one is currently on eBay. It's not mine & I don't know the owner. The person has sold a lot of items and has a 100% feedback rating, so they should be pretty trustworthy. Good luck with your search!

That Kamoa is the same as the East-Start. There's a difference of opinion on whether they're the exactly the same, I think they are. When I spearheaded a UU group buy 3 years ago from East-Start, Simon there told me they make the Kamoa Evolve and Komoa just distributes them. He also told me a single one is $400, in a group of 20 or more, $165 each. This is the one I got, it had a 6 string tailpiece which I changed to 4 strings, and the bridge is a combo 4 string and 6 string. I sold it shortly after I received it because I found I never had an occasion to use it. The color is not exactly as shown on their site.
