Very nice. I am with you though, I don't tend to play the fancy ones I have, I grab the Koloa, Ohana and Mainland before I open the ones in the cases! Pretty though.

Not to c-block KamakOzzie or anything, but your playing will improve and you'll enjoy learning more on a nicer instrument.
It's kind of silly to me to sell something that nice because you don't feel worthy of it. Take it as a challenge to become good enough to feel like you deserve to be playing it.
Otherwise you're going to be spending a lot more to get something comparable down the road. (regular flavor K-1's aren't exactly cheap...)

make love to your uke

Wow. That is beautiful. How much did you originally buy this for? and does it have any pickup installed to it?

Thanks.

Not only that, but it's one of the rare Lanikais that are Kanile'as. I wouldn't sell it unless there's some pressing life issues. Instruments are meant to be played. Even the nice ones!

I'll trade you a couple of "lesser" concerts-Mainland and Lanikai, for it if you just want to downgrade. Why don't you borrow a couple of hundred from a friend, pick up a Mainland, keep this one and play it in a few months?

replied to PM
sorry to those who asked, but I am not interested in trades right now.

I know I said I wanted to downgrade because it is "far too nice for me", but current money troubles also play a large role in my decision.
If I sell it, and purchase a new, cheaper ukulele... I will have a couple hundred left over which will help me out a lot right now.

If it isn't sold by the time my financial issues go away, I will likely keep it
I know it's rare(Kanile'a no longer build ukuleles for Lanikai)...made in the USA .....AND arguably the nicest Lanikai ever made
maybe someone with a ukulele museum will buy it :)

We all understand money troubles. I apologize for the "you gotta keep it" message. I know where you're coming from. I hope you sell it soon.

Mokai - just tried to reply by PM and got this message: "mokai has exceeded their stored private messages quota and cannot accept further messages until they clear some space."

Just thought you should know...

I would take it, but funds are short. This uke will be somewhat collectible.

So basically a Kanilea Concert ukulele for $418. I can't believe this is still for sale. I have to think about this one. I may have some extra $$ laying around.

I also own and LK-1C. It is such a beatiful uke and at the same time a collector item for those trying to hunt to discontinued or hard to find ukes. There were only a limited run of these so whomever picks this up will have the pleasure of knowing that now very many were made. The sound from this uke is very lush and warm and probably one of the most beautiful sounding ukes I've heard. Kanilea really did Lanikai a favor when they built this for them.

Mokai I too have faced financial hardships in the past and have sold items I swore I'd never sell so I can relate to what you are going through. I wish you the best of luck in you sale but there is that other part of me that hopes you are able to keep it and enjoy it :)
