Putting this up for trade or sale, will take another Chuck Moore or Kanile'a in a 4 string in trade, anything beyond a NSU or K4 respectively in spec. This is due to my left hand arthritis, which is getting worse. I am having trouble with double string ukes.

Asking 1850$ which is a steal for a Moore Betta. Though I will take any trade above and beyond that with cash on my side if required. I specifically want one of the bird tenors that were produced or the flower rosette chuck Moore.

Features

Wow! I've been wanting a Lili'u, and that one is a beauty. The only problem is that if I bought it, I would probably need to sell it to pay my divorce lawyer!

Thanks for the positive comments. Forgot to add it O.B.O.

Also willing to take and its a little weird a small grand piano specially a 5 foot Kawai, or similar, clearly with other ukes or cash.

Beautiful uke! Have you tried taking the extra strings off, and using it like a 4 string. I know the distances between the strings might be a bit wide, but it might solve your problem.

Love the geckos!

Have not done it, I have thought of having the nut and saddle re cut but it seems a little extreme. Would rather it go to someone looking for a 6 and then buy another 4.

Hey did you ever think about contacting more betta ukuleles and ask him if you could trade for a 4 string? Our maybe you can trade it to him and give him some cash. Just an a idea. It wouldn't hurt to ask.
