The Compass Rose is SOLD!! Happy Holidays everyone!

I'm selling my Rick Turner Compass Rose walnut. I purchased this new
last year, it is flawless, and a beautiful looking and sounding uke! It's a pleasure to play. We are making our own instruments, and I am selling all of my collection one at a time (just sold the Mya Moa) as we perfect the instruments that we are building. $1100 firm, including original
gigbag + actual shipping costs. This is a nice one!

I'd love a Walnut CR, but I'm just have a solid-maple CR built by the man himself, so it'll have to wait. Such a lovely uke too.

Is that a pickup on the end or a strap button?

Beautiful Wallnut uke. It's a tenor or a concert size?

Counting the frets I would say it's a concert.

Since the first concert CR ukes just came in the last couple of months,
and the concert CR I saw had the fret board partially cover the sound hole,
I'd say this is a tenor.

BTW I love playing my CR tenor.

CR makes 12 frets to body...they just started making 14 frets to body on concert and will make tenors soon as well.

She's a beauty... Do I detect a bit of Burl on the headstock?

This is a very attractive deal on a great uke. Every time I play mine I'm glad I decided on a Compass Rose.

Somebody should snatch this up... Is this a "C" model. Assuming so with the binding on the body and headstock.

Good luck. Dean

I sent a PM last night but it doesn't look like it was received. I'll try again.

I contacted seller PM yesterday afternoon. He said he'd be away a couple days.

I didn't realise anyone else was interested in buying; since I already have a maple CR being built, I'll pull out and let someone else have this one. :)

Oh, I'd love to have this one. Too bad it's not a concert size, I'd buy it in a flash! I just bought a Tenor Kanilea, nice uke, beautiful look and sound but I've decided I just don't like the tenor size. I'll be putting it up for sale soon. Happy New Year all!

Aloha Bruddah John,

Nice Compass Rose tenor! By any chance, could you post a video sample of the actual uke? Is the tone on the bright side? I haven't heard what an all walnut uke sounds like. Depending on the tone of the uke, I may be interested - so long that it's not too bright.

Mahalo,

Kimo

Here's one that sold at Gryphon, but the sound sample is still available:
