View Full Version : Ko'olau Custom Koa Tenor

04-24-2009, 04:12 AM
This is a Model 200 Ko'olau Custom Koa Tenor. Made in June of 05. I upgraded to the best Koa they had. It is AAAAA Master Grade. The pictures don't do the wood justice, it is 3 dimensional. You really have to see it in person to see the beauty. Everyone who sees it just says it is the most beautiful wood they have ever seen. It changes the way it looks with every change in the light angle. More importantly it sounds better than it looks. Tonally it continues to improve like a fine wine. I also upgraded to Waverly Gold tuners with Ebony buttons, a Rope and Ebony binding and a Tru Oil hand rubbed finish. The finish allows the instrument to really sing and is easy to maintain. The Uke has all of around 2 hrs playing time and is in New conditon. Setup in LoG. Comes in a Ko'olau hard case.

Maybe I should have a Ukulele Underground Raffle and sell tickets. What do you think? Say 100 tickets @ $20, or 50 tickets @ $40. Wouldn't it be a first? Any ideas?

g'day we had a guy on another forum do that, he put up for raffle up on a brand new honda z50jz, sold 100 tickets for $50 each plus a z50 t-shirt, its really easy to do, i helped him out with it all, if you want i can lend you a hand, becuase things like this bring the whole community together and it gets everyone very excited about it, offer for 2 week 100 tickets for US$20 only 1 per person, everyone must pay before there name is confirmed, then after the two weeks, if there is any tickets left over people can have a chance to buy another ticket, winner just has to cover postage and people can make all payments via paypal. If winner covers postage cost then what that will do is allow people like myself and all other countries to have a chance to be involved. Great work mate if your willing to do that. I forone see everyone getting involved. Get admin to make a sticky with it so it dosnt get lost through the forums.

Great suggestion mate, i do hope you go through with it:shaka:

Not sure how legal that sort of raffle is... just sayin' it should be checked out as OK before you all get started...

04-25-2009, 07:41 PM
I would buy a ticket

Just Kidding on the raffle but it sounded like fun ! THX

I don't think it's legal but I'd still buy a few tickets.

Isn't a raffle held for some sort of cause with all proceeds going to charity? Anyway, here's an FAQ about raffles (http://rafflefaq.com/united-states-raffle-laws/).

it says its illegal in hawaii

Not sure how legal that sort of raffle is...
Depends where the site is hosted. In the USA, UK and Canada, it's illegal to hold any sort of raffle in which money is collected without a licence. probably similar in otehr nations, but I only know for sure these three.

The authorities could close the domain, fine the site owners and maybe even the mods, too. Really mess up the uke community if that happened.

Act with caution.

Will you take 1999 monthly payments?

04-26-2009, 01:32 PM
LOL! Ya, I'll even make half those payments if you decide to do that!!!

04-27-2009, 04:53 AM
I checked here in Washington State a lottery online is illegal. Also violates interstate gambling laws. Fun idea but no can do !

04-27-2009, 12:09 PM
Well, the monthly payment thing sounds good....
Or a giveaway? ;)
