Update: Just selling the Strunal 1/4 guitar

Concert Scale Jupiter Creek Solidbody Electric: (SOLD)
Solid Mahogany
Jarra Fretboard
Steel Strings
Telecaster Bridge/Pickup
(telecaster bridge is fully adjustable for action and intonation)
Tone and Volume Control
Sealed Geared Tuners
2 Strap buttons
Cutaway w/ 22 frets!!!

Strunal 1/4 size Classical Guitar (Guitalele)
Solid Cedar Top
Tenor Scale
Tuned ADGCEA w/ Savarez Classic Low Tension Classical Guitar Strings
(D'addario pro-arte normal tensions included upon request)
Laminated Mahogany Back and Sides
Slotted Headstock
Extremely tight tuners (not sure of the brand)

I use this mostly for hands on transposition of songs I know on guitar. Its just a short step to the guitar chords on guitalele, then you just drop the top 2 strings for the Uke. When I was still as much of a guitar player as uke player, I played this for a while more than either one. Now that I'm pretty much uke only, It doesn't get the playing time it needs.

Tone: Very warm and full. This is a great instrument to accompany uke, whether your jamming w/ your friends who play guitar, or playing a "bass" line or rythym part for the uke, its a great accompanyment instrument. I think it sounds great played with a punchy spruce top uke, its mellow rich full tone is a nice contrast.

Condition: This solid cedar top is extremely soft and there is a rather large gouge in the soundboard above the soundhole. It doesnt damage anything structurally or the tone but it is a bit unsightly. There also some small pick gouges (yet again I loaned it to someone to record with, and for some reason he used a pick) below the soundhole.

Asking $100 + Shipping



Lanikai 0-8E (SOLD)
Solid Spruce top
8 String
Laminated Ovangkol back and sides
good action
Acoustic/Electric (pickup is spotty)



Willing to consider trade for a wellmade concert, soprano, or baritone that sounds nice, lamintes fine

thats my new one, just there for scale reference for the concert... the lanakai is about the same size, so i probably shouldve used that but the kala was out.

No thanks, I'm not interested in another Kala Tenor. Plus that retails new for a bit less than I am asking...
