Would like to buy a 8 String Tenor, been looking at Baton Rouge (rosewood fretboard), pono and ohana or similar
Please let me know if you have an 8 string that may be of interest
Thanks

I just picked up a white label Kamaka 8 string (probably 20+ years old). It's not for sale but I highly recommend these for anyone looking for an 8 string. I've had one previously and missed the original. Once I put Worth clear fluorocarbon strings on it, it came alive.

There are several reasonably priced 8 strings at Southern Ukulele right now.

Thanks Cornfield,
I've not seen any advertised, but if one comes up I'll give it consideration

Thanks Counter,
I ordered a Baton Rouge 8 string from them a few weeks ago, advertised as the rosewood older model
, when it arrived it was the new walnut fretboard model. They refunded and changed the ad.
I don't want another Kala and of the other few the pono is my favourite but 629 for my 1st 8 string is a bit too much

How about

looks a good price for an 8 string, even if it's laminate which I assume it is as it doesn't state solid anywhere.
