For sale is a handmade solid Acacia Tenor ukulele.

Makapili Ukuleles are 100% handmade by me in my workshop in Italy.


This one is made of 100% environmentally concious wood.


Top, Back, sides, headplate veneer: Acacia Confusa (urban tree removal)

Neck: Spanish Cedar (FSC certified)

Fretboard: Indian rosewood (recycled from a bass fretboard)
17 frets total, 14 to the body

Tuners: Grover closed geared tuners

This is an excellent sounding ukulele. It looks very nice too.

This ukulele has a very few very, very small scratches on the back, right next to the edge. If I didnt tell you, you may never notice them. Otherwise it is great. The price reflects this cosmetic issue.


Here is a sound sample, excuse my shabby playing:

The price is 432 Euros, and includes shipping within Europe. Sorry this ukulele does not come with a case.

I hope it finds a good home

Take care,
Thomas

Thanks Dab.

This will be the last Tenor that I sell this year. My workspace is not suitable for winter building, and I will wait until next spring or summer to build anymore insturments. If anyone is interested in one of my Tenors, this is the last one for a few months.

I will reduce the price to 400 Euros, shipping included, but I dont think I will reduce it again.

Take care,
Thomas

Hello Thomas,

What's the VSL of the tenor?

thomas

Im sorry Frederich,

I do not know what VSL means.

Take care,
Thomas

My apologies Thomas,

VSL is vibrating string length or scale length.

Do you take paypal?

Hey Frederich,

No need to appologize. I thought that may be the meaning but wasnt sure. The scale lenght is 17.000 inches, or 431.8 millimeters.

If you would like any more information about the ukulele, or more pictures feel free to ask.

I certainly do take payapal, and acutally prefer it. You can send me a private message through this site if you want to do the pay pal payment, that way neither of our email addresses are publicly available.

Take care,
Thomas

This Teonr is still abailable.

I guess that I will reduce the price on this one too, although I am not excited about it. I would really like to sell it before I leave for the US in the middle of the month.

New Price 350 Euros, including shipping within Europe (or America if you are patient), no case

Take care,
Thomas
