Hey everyone
I am looking for an 8-string ukulele for around 300$, something like Lanikai O-8E. would be cool if it was a acoustic/electric ukulele. I live in Poland and there are no shops with ukuleles here. moreover international shipping from most of the online stores is like $60-100 which is way to much.
If you happen to have one for sale, let me know please ! :)

Hopefully you can find one locally. I once shipped a soprano to England and it cost me $60 for materials and shipping.

Hello!

What about trying the Southern Ukulele Store in the UK?

http://www.southernukulelestore.co.uk/

They have some 8-strings on their website (although some are out of stock).

The shipping might be more reasonable within Europe and I think if you buy from within the EU you will not have to pay Import Duty / Tax (that's how it is in the UK, I'm not certain about Poland, but worth looking into).

Good luck with your search :)

In that price range, I'd get the O8 E with the solid spruce top....they really "sing."

thanks for all the answers :)

seems like most 8 strings ukes in Southern Ukulele Store are out of stock + in pounds its even more expensive than getting one from America and paying for the shipping ^^ will keep my eyes open on that store though.

Aye, I was mainly thinking about O8 E, would be great if someone was selling one within Europe, or used one from other continents so it might be cheaper :)

Hi kekebur

Have you looked at Thomann in Germany?
They have reasonable shipping. I've found that custom duty from the US (to UK) can add almost 1/3 to the price :(
I've got away without being asked for duty on some items, but never on a ukulele-sized parcel.

They also have a Lanikai 8-string with a pickup.

There's also one on SUS's ebay listings (http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Lanikai-O-8-8-String-Tenor-Ukulele-Solid-Spruce-top-/320642521219?pt=UK_Musical_Instruments_Sting_Instr uments&hash=item4aa7c89883)

Postage to Poland is 19.50
