Hi folks,

Well this uke is back on the market. I thought I was going to keep it, but I have a Kanilea tenor coming tomorrow so this one needs a new home.

I have removed the Fishman active pickup system to have it installed in the Kanilea. So the Mele is ready drilled for a pick up. As it is, it cant be strung up and played. At least not without a new saddle. The saddle it currently has will work with an under saddle pickup installed. Without one however, the saddle to to short to be used.

This uke is still in terrific condition. It comes with a Uke Crazy Weaved hardshell case w/ built in hydrometer.

$350 OBO. Buyer is responsible for shipping.

Mahalo! Very pretty, I especially like the stripe on the back. Unfortunately, I am looking for a cutaway. :(

I believe you need a price or you can request a trade. However, this is not ebay. Good luck

If I didn't have one, I'd pick this up and install a pickup in it. Mine sounds great with Hilo strings (that's what Mele sets them up with)

No sweat Stan, I understand that the rules are there to keep the piece.

I'll edit the first page if a mod will kindly edit the title.

Hi AncientMatingCalls,

After giving it some thought, I'd be interested in it with the pickup if you wanted to do that, but without it feels like a road I don't think I want to go down.

Anyway something to think about.

Hey Stan, it is indeed still available. Id be happy to answer any questions or requests you might have about it.

Sorry to hear that Rondog, but ill be using the pick up for my new Kanilea.
