JUST LISTED ON EBAY 11/1/09. CLEARER PHOTOS THERE IF YOU WISH TO SEE THEM. I am the original owner of this beautiful Like- New Koaloha Super Concert. It is made of solid koa wood. It has an incredible bright clear sound. It has been re-strung with Ko'olau golds for a rich/bright sound that compliments the koa perfectly in my opinion.

The uke is in like-new condition. I take care of my ukes like they are my children. I am selling some of my ukes so I can afford a custom. Same as my other uke ad says..

The uke purchase includes the following items:
Koaloha Super Concert - Like New (November 2007 stamp inside on wood)
Ko'olau high quality case

Payment: PAYPAL ONLY. $625 firm. Plus $20 shipping. These are selling for arnd $800, but do not come with the beautiful crown bridge anymore..ouch! I am assuming this bridge will only add value if Koaloha discontinues it...very labor intensive to do. Will ship to continental USA (lower 48) only..no Hawaii or Canada etc

This will be posted on ebay next week..thought I would give you guys a crack at it first...

PM me

NOTE: I have 100% ratings on ebay. Check out n8isinca if you wish. Thanks!

Finding out that Koaloha has stopped making the amazingly beautiful crown bridge is making me think twice....maybe I should hold on to these..hmm:o

Maybe the new bridge is better for sound quality? I don't think Koaloha would change just because of cost. From a structural point of view the top might resonate easier with a smaller bridge. But I have to admit that I would not want to get the newer version unless it yields better sound.

Man, Super tempting. This is what I have been looking at getting, either a KoAloha SC or a Kanile'a SC. I just bought a Mainland Soprano and told myself I wouldnt buy my "K Brand" until I have sold my Oscar Schmidt OU-5 that I have been trying to get rid of. Maybe if you don't get rid of it, I will have a chance. Timing just isnt right :iwant:

At least one of them. I got a sceptre and It has the crown bridge. When I was looking for my koAloha I wanted either a Sceptre or a tenor with the crown bridge. Deach found it for me and for that I am thankful. Paul (I think it was Paul) told me that they stoped making the crown because the bowtie is a little stronger and the crown bridge was a Poppa koAloha trademark and the torch is being passed or something like that.

Yes, I was implying that you might be interested, as I thought you stated that you were considering the purchase of a Koaloha s-concert...:)
