OK who has a 6 or 8 string uke tucked away collecting dust and ready to part with it?
Let me know what you have. I'm in the market for one or the other, depending what it is.

Just got rid of my Pono 6 string mahogany tenor for 1/4 of your budget

Phil-that's my luck. Day late and a dollar short! Pono would have worked fine. I have owned several of them in the past

By the way, for around $289 you can get the Ohana TK70-8 all solid tenor. The solid spruce topped solid mahogany model sounds better than a few that cost 2-3 times that much....Amazing chime for that kind of money, loud, great projection. In the process of getting the taropatch, recently missed the string used for $199 on ebay. Maybe someone here has one. https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=ohana+8+string&qpvt=ohana+8+string&FORM=VDRE

Well I have the Kala sub bass and the Ohana 5 string. So it will be something else at this time.
