I may potentially regret this sale, but I'm willing to part with my beloved black Risa Les Paul. It is tuned to DGBE tuning, and I purchased it from www.ukulele.de direct from Risa last year.

Most of you interested would already know about this great uke. It's Risa's cream of the crop model as far as electric ukuleles go. Dual humbucker pickups, custom designed by Risa themselves, and separate tone/volume control for each pickup. The pickup switch goes 3 ways (neck, bridge, both). The sound through an amp is amazing, as a good quality pair of humbuckers would do, except this baby drives like a Uke. Warm, deep, rich sound.

I had the setup done by my trusty guitar store. Finding strings for it is easy, it uses the EADG strings from a 0.009-0.042 electric guitar set (I prefer "Super Light Gauge", D'Addario) which are cheap and widely available. The strings on it currently have just been installed 2 weeks ago, brand new and sounding its best right now.

Reason for sale is that, well...Lately I've been feeling one steel string electric is enough for my collection. I've been having a taste for acoustic instruments lately, and a Tenor guitar has really caught my eye. I haven't been playing this Risa much lately, so I'm happy to part with it after having some GREAT times with it.

Hope it goes to a great home.


Sorry that it has some stickers on it (I like anime). I hope the good price I offer is enough to make up for it. I won't peel them off myself, I'll send it as it is right now. I'm sure it can be peeled off and cleaned if done right. There are just some minor blemishes from normal use, some fine scratches here and there on the surface. There are no significant damages as far as I can see (and I know this uke pretty well personally). Has been used mostly indoors for self-playing, Youtube videos and worship sessions at my University's Christian club.

I have used this uke in numerous Youtube videos (played through a humble Roland Microcube. I'm sure it can do more with a bigger amp).

STILL AVAILABLE!!
I sent the buyer a PM that he won it, and just needs to send me the money.
For some reason, that PM didn't go through, and he assumed that I had sold it to someone else. He has since bought a different ukulele.

SO THIS UKE IS STILL FOR SALE!!




What are the odds?
I no longer trust the PM system.
If you are interested, PM me, but please also email me: naekku88@hotmail.com
