Hi,

I'm selling my Lanikai Curly Koa Concert uke (model number CK-C). I haven't picked it up since I got my Kamaka and need some money so thought I'd try and sell it here before putting it on eBay. Happy to ship anywhere in Europe.

The uke has the following spec:


Laminated curly koa top, sides and back
Rosewood fretboard
20 frets
Diecast machine heads
Maple binding
Oval fret markers


The uke comes with the following:


Lanikai deluxe style canvas case with inner compartment and two straps
Korg Chromatic tuner model CA-30
Strung with D'Addario Pro Arte Concert strings
Exclusive Ukulele Underground sticker!


I keep all my instruments in excellent condition, it has a slight mark on the top of the headstock (see attached photo) but apart from that it's free from scratches and marks.

Combined this package costs £245 brand new plus shipping. See Newcastle Music's website here for the retail value of the uke: http://newcastlemusic.co.uk/Item/441/Lanakai_Concert_Ukulele_Curly_Koa_UCKC/ (http://newcastlemusic.co.uk/Item/441/Lanakai_Concert_Ukulele_Curly_Koa_UCKC/)

I'm looking to sell it for newly reduced £165. The ebay auction is here:

Cheers,

John

Good luck with that man, IMHO price wise i think it's a little on the high side, I'll be watching to see if you get the asking price as I have one too, I always thought it was solid, thats what I was led to believe.
I've always found that you get more bidders if you start it a 99p, I know it's a bit scarey but you'll get lots of watchers and you never know it may go through the roof.

Hey yeah I know a lot of people that sell for .99 to begin with, I'm not wanting to risk it though. I think the price is pretty fair considering the condition it is in and the fact it comes with a new case and a tuner. The package would cost over 250 from any retail shop, and these are pretty rare in England.

The uke is often mis-sold as a solid instrument. Duke of Uke proudly sells it as solid koa but it isn't, still sounds good though!

I'll see what happens with it, you never know I may have to reduce it.

Go on be a devil put it up for 99p see what happens, as for my not so solid instrument, maybe I need to have a word with the Duke, cos that's where I bought it from.

Yes you should! You can tell it's a laminate (or plywood was we should be saying as we're from the UK) by looking at the cross-section of the wood, it is clearly made up of three layers! The difference is very obvious when I compare it with my Kamaka.

Lanikai are very sneaky and you'll notice in their website they have a half-life in the description. They don't refer to it as non-solid wood, they just say "koa wood", all the other instruments with solid wood say "solid mahogany" or whatever it is.

99p. And screw that. I start at the least amount I'm willing to accept, and hope for more. Sometimes I get more, but usually not. However, all my items sell, typically in the last hours of auction.

There are 8 people watching that one.
