I've been debating selling this ukulele but I just don't play it very often. I mostly stick with my MP Custom and my Kamaka. Solid koa top, back & sides. Sounds wonderful. It does have a few issues...the intonation isn't dead-on...not bad, just not perfect. I also bought this used as a blem...looks like the bridge came off at one point and was re-glued. You can see some glue residue as well as a chip (see pictures). There's also some very, very small wear marks by the "g" and "a" tuner (I tried to show a picture of this but it's tough to see).

I won this for $510. I recently installed a Fishman passive undersaddle pickup. (http://www.amazon.com/Fishman-AGO-UKE-passive-narrow-ukulele/dp/B0012E1LUQ) I'm asking $425. Hard case is included (another issue...when closed, there is a small gap at the butt end of the uke...see picture). Shipping to lower 48 is included. Paypal is preferred.

Sorry, no tab. I learned it from this YouTube tutorial (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wYOO9g1s2jg). I refined the verse with this turotial. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eY5AJiU0aD8)

Dude, Of course it was fast. you are offering the uke for $200 less than you have invested in it right. Those fishman p/u aren't cheap.

Nurpin posts his ukes to sell. Good guy to buy from too. I just wished I had the money to jump on it when I first saw it.

Aloha Nuprin,
I admire your honesty in pointing out details in flaws and for your generously reasonable prices in your offers,
you're someone I consider a a respectable seller that I'll keep in mind if I'm looking for a certain ukulele. Also,
cannot forget your generosity to fellow UU member Natalie....MM Stan...

Well rats...looks like she who hesitates is lost. That is what I get for spending the day away from the computer. Congrats to the lucky first person.

Thanks! I try to be as honest as possible when I sell. I've been burned from eBay deals where the item arrives in a condition different than is described and I don't want to do that to anyone.

I was more than happy to Deach the K-Wave Tele to Natalie...it was sitting unplayed in my room and she really wanted one. I'd rather someone gets to enjoy it rather than letting it go to waste.

This is an awesome deal. Those cracks and other dings are just characteristics of the uke. It's character. Hope it finds a good home, reallllly good deal.

Oh, I'm calling seconds or thirds or whatever place in line on that uke if the buyer backs out. I've got the PayPal ready to go.

Still don't have a KoAloha Tenor w/ pickup. (Patting myself on the back for that justification.)

You're on the list Jon...there are 5 others before you.

Just to give everyone an update as to the pending sale...the buyer is in Australia and work has prevented me from getting shipping rates. My next day off is Wednesday so I can get shipping rates at that point. The buyer will then have to make sure he's willing to pay for the shipping on top of the uke. If all goes smoothly, the uke is his. If he backs out, I start going down the list.
