Yeah, HMS sold another one. What a sweet uke (but then, all of my KoAloha's are). Its a concert scale, & I got the O'ahu case & a Five.0 pickup installed (by KoAloha). MGM & Andrew were great to work with & the uke is gorgeous! Here's a few photos...

Nice Gmoney. I wonder how the concert feels vs the tenor?

I have always thought Sceptres looked really cool. But one thing that's bugged me is the sharp edges. Do/can they poke your arm when it's resting on the edge?

I've got a tenor Sceptre. It has never poked my arm, and I find it comfortable to play.

Two things about it that I prefer - the concert scale vs. tenor (my Super Concert & Pineapple Sunday both have tenor necks) AND it has FRICTION TUNERS!!! Makes for a lighter headstock. Love it!

And... to the other questioner... the "pointy" ends don't bother me at all; in fact, it seems that they actually help hold on to it. I haven't tried the pickup yet... that's tomorrow's fun.

Nice pick up Glenn. Can't go wrong with a sceptre.

I'm been waiting for a concert Sceptre for awhile. Twas the first KoAloha I ever played - HaoleJohn's, some two years ago. Been wanting one ever since.

Dang, everyone seems to be getting one of these. They've got concert and tenor sizes. Do they make them in soprano?

Congratulations, always thought of you as a pineapple guy, guess it's kind of like a modern pineapple shape, haha.

Hi Kirbo. KoAloha does not make the sceptre in a soprano.

Yeah, thanks. I googled it too. Probably a good thing for me as I need to start saving for a custom.
