Just boring stuff first: I prefer to ship in the U.S. only and I will only ship to verified Paypal addresses.

This is an acoustic Bamboo Fishuku concert size ukulele I received this past Christmas. It stays in tune well, has a lovely finish and comes with a nice gig bag. It's also rather large for a concert in my opinion - almost the size of my tenor. I'm asking $125 plus actual shipping costs/insurance.

Here's the link to the specs and where it was purchased:

This is a Luna High Tide Kao Acoustic/Electric Ukulele that I purchased last Summer. It is a beautiful instrument, stays in tune well and comes with a nice gig bag. I'm asking $210 plus actual shipping/insurance.

I want to add that I know I don't have a lot of posts here but I do have 100% positive Feedback on Etsy. Here's a link to my Etsy profile (don't laugh when you see it - I made artist teddy bears for 14 years):

It doesn't say in the specs on the Guitar Center site for the Luna High Tide whether it is solid or laminate, so I'm assuming laminate?

Hi Jim,
I actually had to go to Luna's website to get the answer for this one as I'm a beginner and wouldn't really know the difference (or at least I don't think I would). On their website, they say it is "crafted from exotic tropical hardwoods" and is "all Koa." I'm not sure if that answered your question or not. Here's the link to their page:

Thanks for your interpretation of Luna's terminology. It is a nice ukulele. I also own the Tenor version that's made of Ovangkoi (I'm guessing now that's laminate too).

I'm pretty sure the solid koa boards required to make that uke would cost nearly as much as its retail price, so there's no possible way it's solid. :)

Again, thank you for chiming in -- I really just bought it because it was a nice looking and nice sounding ukulele. :)

I've played a few Lunas in shops, and I agree-- they are a very nice low-price ukes. The ones I have played have had good tone and nice playability.

You must have some very expensive ukuleles to consider $250 cheap (that's what I paid originally). I guess, as a beginner, I wasn't willing to pay much more. I mean, I'm not good and who knows when I'll get better!

And P.S. I am really strange because I prefer my Applause Ovation (which was even cheaper) to the ukes I've played so far.
