Not really sure if i really want to do this so if my demands seem high, it is b/c I am sitting on the fence here. I have too many koa ukuleles (blasphemy I know, but you can only play one at a time). I am currently craving a spruce top uke, and since asking the wife to let me buy one is out of the question, I'd figured I'd offer one of mine up for trade or sell.

If you want to buy the uke, I want $850 and I'll pay shipping and insurance.

The uke is in fabulous condition. There are some strum marks by the sound hole and not sure if those will buff out or not. There is also a ding on the bottom side that you can kind of see in the picture. I am pointing it out. The ding was on the uke when I got it and I have no idea how it got there. It doesn't affect the uke in anyway. P/U works and I have no idea who made it. The koa is stunning (which is why I am having a hard time doing this).

Trade?
I am looking for a quality spruce top uke. I would like to get equal value. I am looking for a Mele/Pono plus cash or other ukes or a ko'olau spruce top. Please don't waste my time with lesser quality spruce top ukes. If you think it is fair, offer it up and I will decide (no kalas, mainlands, makais, lanikais, etc).
The spruce top uke must be handmade.

I would also take a KoAloha crown bridge tenor or crown bridge super concert I think

Am I asking too much? maybe but it is my uke and I can ask what I want

Basically I want a really nice spruce top uke.
I'm really not hard to work with. Heck, I traded a Pineapple Sunday for this Kamaka.

If you have any questions, feel free to email me at jeller1371@gmail.com or PM me here*





*If you are not a senior member I may ask you to ship first and I will ship after receipt. If a trade goes through, I offer a week to trade back if you are not completely satisfied (you have to pay shipping return cost).

If i sell it, the money is going towards a MB or a custom.

It is a gorgeous uke. It is the one that ke leo had originally right? If so, potential buyers can see more photos in this thread:

If I didn't already have a curly koa Kamaka, I would have killed for this one. Good luck to you John. ;)

WOW! That is ONE SWEET UKE! To think I was close to a trade for that one... guess I will have to content myself w/my KoAloha Super Concert when it gets here... Unless another $850 drops in my lap. Its beautiful.

John,

Would you trade for my Spruce top/ AAA koa Ana'ole? Not sure how to provide the link, but you can view my thread with all of the info in the Market place.

Beautiful Kamaka Tenor! Would definitely have considered it if I didn't just order an MP concert spruce/rosewood.

I thought that Ana'ole was too good to pass up - good trade! Can't wait to hear it - we'll have to compare our new ukes.
