***Risa, Eleuke and Epiphone SOLD ***
***Jupiter Creek only available***


**note: all currency in $US

Selling some of my beloved electric ukes, to save up money for an acoustic bass guitar I'm going to use at church, and to make some space in my bedroom.

They have been delicately taken care of, mostly played indoors.
Photos have all been taken today, just a few minutes ago!

I am setting my prices super low for quick sale. I've listed the international shipping at $30. Realistically, I will be paying a lot more than this.
(I am located in Australia)



1. Risa steel-string electric tenor (SOLD)

$260 + $30 for shipping.

This is Risa's original electric uke with magnetic pickups.
It gives you the advantages of an electric guitar, but the neck and tuning is that of a ukulele.

It's been lovingly played for about 2 years, mostly indoors,

-Lipstick single coil dual pickups: gives a rich, warm tone

-Semi-hollow solid body: great sustain, with extra sweetness and reduced weight

-Currently have D'addario Chrome flatwound Jazz strings on it, to give a very bluesy, smooth tone, that is also very easy on the fingers.
But you have the freedom to use any type of electric guitar string you want. I just happen to prefer flatwounds (was going for the jazz guitar theme).

-Tuned to DGBE (baritone ukulele), but you can easily tune it to GCEA like a uke by changing the strings (I know the right strings to use, so just ask me).

-Great, low playing action.


There are very little signs of wear/use. I've taken care of this uke like a baby. There are some stickers that I've put on it (as I tend to do on my favourite ukes..), which I hope you don't mind.

In great condition - you'll be able to plug and play right away.

Comes with original Risa case included, and the tool thing that was included when I first bought it.

Risa is a superb ukulele company, and their products are designed and made in Germany.

Here it is listed brand new:

My asking price is $260 + $30 for shipping.
This is about half price compared to brand new.

2. Eleuke, tenor in blue gloss finish (SOLD)

http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y121/pactio_kiss/2012-03-11162239.jpg
$130 + $30 shipping.

An Eleuke in great condition. Just some minor signs of use, but none that is noticeable. I just don't find myself playing this uke much, since I also have a Risa uke-solid, which more or less plays the same role in my arsenal.

A great chance to get a bargain Eleuke which is in perfect working order and very lightly used. Eleuke is another great electric ukulele company, by far the most popular. This is the later models from the company which have superior quality control - I can't fault it in any way. It's just a very fun, great quality electric instrument with lots and lots of useful applications when played plugged in. I've owned it for about 1.5 years.

-Active electronics that has superb output and tone (Alkaline 9V battery included)

-Strung with D'addario Pro-Arte nylon strings, which I believe to be the ideal strings for the Eleuke. The full, rich, rounded tone of the strings complements the bright, powerful output of the electronics

-Has instrument output (for amplifiers), headphone output and mp3 input. All working perfectly fine.

-Comfortable to play and hold.

-Original Eleuke padded bag included.


Again.. as I tend to do with the ukes I absolutely love.. I've put some stickers on it. Hope you don't mind!

From browsing on MIM'S ukulele store, it seems the price of a brand new Tenor Eleuke is around $222.

I'll sell mine for $130 + $30 shipping.

3. Jupiter Creek Soprano steel string electric (SOLD)

$200 + $30 shipping


A truly high quality, Australian-made steel-string electric uke made by Jupiter Creek. A very personal, handcrafted instrument made of Australian timbers, which I actually bought in January THIS YEAR! So it's practically nearly new. It was an impulse purchase, and the maker will be retiring from instrument making. So Jupiter Creek instruments will become very rare from now on!

-Scale length is somewhere between soprano and concert size.

-Tuned to GCEA (low G) using D'addario Super Light Gauge electric guitar set (use the DGBE strings)

-The instrument has been setup by the maker himself, so the action is excellent for playing

-Great quality single coil pickup with tone and volume. Has a satin gloss finish over the wood.

-Practically brand new. I've only played it a few times.. put a sticker on it that reads "Light Music Club" in Japanese (it's an anime reference).


It's so new that I haven't even made any videos with it yet.
However, here is a video of other Jupiter Creek ukuleles:

4. Epiphone Mandobird (SOLD!)

$95 + $30 shipping


Not really an "ukulele", but has nevertheless been tuned like one and it plays reasonably well after you adjust to the thinner neck. The string spacing is a bit like on an electric guitar.

-Currently tuned to high-DGBE, as an experiment using D'addario Extra Super Light Gauge (008) set. But it can easily be tuned back to GCEA (low G) using the regular Super Light Gauge (009) set's DGBE strings.

-Excellent single coil pickup. While its neck is like a mandolin, I feel that it has the, perhaps the best pickup. It has great sustain, volume and tone - I guess Epiphone is the more experienced in electric amplification. Very well balanced tone, great both clean and distorted.

-Very lightly used. There's just a few minor signs of wear.
The thin transparent plastic on the pickguard is still there, as though it's just come out of the box.

$95 + $30 shipping

sent you an email on the mandobird. I dont realy like the body but better than the others (though I do wish that pickuard was black!) and its got a reversed headstock :iwant:

cant realy afford it right now at all but I need a steel string for my band since like last year. the dental and med bills will just have wait. again. :o

Oops, I forgot to mention.
As much as I would like it to be in Australian dollars.. I intended them to all be in US dollars, as a majority of members here are in the US.

So yes, officially, all $ in this sale are US $$


UPDATE: Risa has been confirmed as SOLD.
Someone is interested in the Epiphone, but no sale confirmation yet.

A very cool looking Uke. Is it heavy in weight like an eleuke ?

kissing
03-18-2012, 01:52 PM
It is similar to an eleuke, just a bit lighter. Although i wouldnt call an eleuke "heavy".
They are fairly light for a solid body.

Very comfortable to hold with or without a strap.
