I have an unused Ohana SK-WG deep-bodied soprano for sale with deluxe hard case. A beautiful instrument.

Although I work for Ohana, this ukulele is owned by me personally.

It has never been used and, if you buy it, will be set up to your requirements.

Full details and information here:

God, that's nice, Ken. And it has, if I can see right, a tie bridge, rather than a knotted bridge. I adore tie bridges. They are uncommon on sopranos.

That's going to fly out the door to some lucky player in the U.K., certainly. Wow, that wood is "curly".

Good luck with the sale...I just wish I'd seen the zoom before it was sold. If I can ask one really quick question, that will probably only require a one word reply and will save a PM or whole new thread, what video editing software do you use? I'd guessed, from your green screen use on a few vids, that it was Adobe Premiere and/or After Effects.

Yes, it is a lovely uke. I just don't play sopranos that often and I have a lot of other sopranos lying around that I can use.

From the way things have been selling, it is much more likely to go to someone in the US. Even FedEx from here is not too expensive.

The Zoom took just over an hour to sell. I have a feeling i could have sold dozens of them, but I only had the one, of course.

I use Final Cut Pro X.

Aaaah. You seem such a nice chap, it never occurred to me that you might own an Apple.

Yes, I went over to the Dark Side a couple of years ago. I now lust after machines that look pretty, but use the same components as PCs and cost three times as much.

Funny, I was thinking a similar thing earlier while looking at some custom Ukes.

Yes, making a good sound on a uke has often got very little to do with the uke (or the strings). Having a nice uke is more to do with how it makes you feel. this is not a popular view, but I believe it to be true.

Thanks Phil.

However, it is an American soprano. Ohana is based in Long Beach.

Sorry Phil, I see what you mean. In fact, I was really expecting it to go to the US. As it happens, someone in the UK did buy it, while much of America was still asleep.

'Fraid so, J. It was a beautiful uke too.

I have just posted a recording about your part of the world.

Yeah, unfortunately, a lot of things seem to happen while America is "still asleep."
