Below is a link for my sale of the Koaloha Sceptre Tenor my wife bought me a while ago. Played maybe twice its brand new in perfect condition. Reason for sale is its just not my style. Amazing sound and projection but i just always reach for a standard body shape uke when i play. Im having some ukuleles built by bradford donaldson and would like to fund with this sale.
oh and it comes with a oscar schmidt case that fits it like a glove! Free fedex second day air shipping for you impatient guys that want to play it ! cant get much better than that!

If you look closely at the pics of the front Soundboard the koa has a really cool figuring on both sides that almost looks like the uke has eyes. thats what it looks like to me anyways. thought that was awesome!

Price 800.00 INCLUDING SECOND DAY AIR FEDEX SHIPPING conus
payment via paypal gift

I have 210 100% positive transactions on ebay under the same username marcovgv

Would you consider shipping something other than FedEx?

Sure... UPS?

what you got against Fedex LOL, I happen to get a good rate and free insurance with them. neve had a problem

Sure... UPS?

what you got against Fedex LOL

It would have to be USPS. FedEx and UPS do not deliver where I live. IT arrives in Anchorage and then sits until a month passes by, then USPS delivers it to me. I've been waiting for a month and half for a bag of dog food to arrive. USPS sends it in a week.

MARCOVGV
10-19-2012, 09:56 AM
Sure brother USPS will work hopefully they dont charge me much more for insuring it. go to the ebay link and buy it through there, pay via paypal and it will be on its way!

By the way Epic Beard Man! ive been growing mine for 2 months going to go for the YEARD!

Funny i have four kids, their Names: Kai, Kainoa, Kaileia and Keoni (saw keoni on your youtube)

Nice price on a Sceptre. USPS would actually probably be a lot cheaper then UPS.

Nice Sceptre! I was thinking about one, but not sure if I'd ding a point. I'm clumsy that way.

If you sell it on UU rather than EBay, you'd literally save...after eBay fee and Paypal fee...11.5 percent, or $103,5 bucks.

Wanna sell it in a day, and still come out with the same ( or even up $3) ? List it here for $800 and it'll fly...and if you still wanted Paypal, the buyer'd likely pay the fee.

Just a thought. More than one way to skin a cat. It's gorgeous. I honestly thought about it, but those spikes. I know myself...

If I were in the market for it I wouldn't have a problem buying it from you off of here and I think others here would feel the same way. You've been a member for over a year now and have over 40 posts so thats a good thing.

yep. I want it. But it is already cold up here. I regret (kind of) letting mine go...well I just miss the sceptre. I will talk to my wife, if I can convince her...then I will buy it.

My understanding is that ebay owns and controls paypal? The buyer protection should be the same either way. Well, apart from the ability to gripe through posting negative feedback on ebay...

BTW Best of luck with the sale - looks like a beauty :)

Marcovgv, I'm flabbergasted. Although your price has been all over the board (on eBay and here), if I'm understanding your latest price, it's $825 (Buyer pays Paypal fee, you pay expedited shipping)! This is a TENOR Sceptre (not a concert)...with a case (the ones from Koaloha don;t even have a case).

I've seen a lot lesser ukes fly out of this Marketplace for more money. This is a mystery to me, M.

MARCOVGV
11-06-2012, 07:08 PM
lol im in no rush. its kind of a specialty ukulele and you have to be looking to get a sceptre.

I have one of these, and while the shape is a little strange, they are really beautiful in real life, and they play and SOUND amazing. great clarity of tone, sounds beautiful when played softly and a real CANNON when you need it loud. and at the price he is now offering it, I almost want to buy it for a spaRE. IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR AN AMAZING TENOR, YOU NEED TO BUY THIS. I am really surprised it has laSTED this long. these are playable works of art. I paid more than this for mine[used] and am very pleased.

I find it interesting to see how the "hot" and "highly sought after" ukes have changed over time amoungst the people who are members here and also the guests that visit the UU. Two years ago this uke would have sold in the $1000 range in no time at all. And the same goes for Pineapple Sundays. Now they sit like the misfit toys on Christmas Island. Why? Has the market been over saturated with these models? Did the crown bridge mean that much to the appeal of the sceptres and tenors? I don't know, but as others have said before me, these are easy playing ukes with a wonderful sound built by a company with the best customer service in the industry.

I have one - bought it in Summer 2011 at Ukulele Source in San Jose. It is easily my best instrument, and as strumsilly said, brings out the best in whatever you play on it.

I, too, would love to have another one, but I must save my money for the electrician who is going to replace my main power panel, so that I can get the solar panels installed, so i can save some money on electrical bills, so I can buy more instruments.

If the electrician ever gets back to me, I can pay him - and then start saving for the next ukulele.

Other than the custom I've been saving for since summer, that is....


I really wish someone would buy this Sceptre, though. It keeps calling me.

I'll say it again, this is a crazy good deal on one of the best sounding tenors out there at any price. + it looks super cool. If the price goes any lower I might be tempted to get another one for a spare. I think these are about $1200 and the prices are going up if they haven't already.

I don't understand why this is still here for sale. When I first started playing ukulele 1 1/2 years ago just about everyone wanted one of these Sceptres and the Pineapple Sunday. I hope if I ever sell mine I don't have this much trouble. I don't have anything bad to say about the Sceptre. They are sound monsters and I don't think any of my 15 or how ever many i have i seem to have lost count ukuleles can stand up to it volume wise and also complete easy access to the fretboard all the way up the neck and not to say its also easy on the eyes.
Hang in there Marcovgv it will sell!
