Hello, I'm looking for a tenor 4 string for around 1500-2000 I'm not that worried about wood, bindings, purfling, etc. I like darker woods like koa and mahogany but really just want it to sound good and play good so im open to anything. For the brands i Would prefer ko'olau, mya moe, G string, or kanilea but I'm open to anything

Thanks

13 frets to the body is odd for a factory instrument. looks nice though

Thanks but I think I'm over trying to get a custom been waiting to get a tenor for about 9 months and still don't have one and I think I could get a better deal trying to get a used one

I'm pretty sure Jake is setting up shop now in West Virginia. Hope to meet him some time soon. He's pretty close to me.

Talk to Andrew at HMS re: that Ko'olau he introduced recently. You can get a custom Ko'olau in your price range.

That Kamaka Ohta'san in the Marketplace isn't half bad either.

I would definitly give a thumbs up on Jon's Collings. I'm just sad that I can't own it. Collings makes great ukuleles in every way.

Check out Jerry Hoffman's Boat Paddle Ukes site, he has a beautiful ML style tenor on his "for sale" page you can get now. It's ebony and really looks nice.

The kamaka ohta San is actually mine but I don't really want someone else's signature ukulele and I don't want a concert and I'm think is will talk to him about a koolau I don't really get what the thing on HMS is do you just email them and tell them what you want or what?

I was going to suggest this one too. great minds... I bet this wood combo with that body style would be amazing. a what a looker.

++ on Jon's uke. That one passed from me to him and it is as advertised... super easy action, great sound and good price. I regret selling it, but my UAS and 'one-in-one-out' policy got the best of me. I'm sure whatever uke you decided on will be great because you're got a good budget in mind. The perfect choice for me always seems to be the 'next one'..

Yep... If I had $1500 laying around I'd be all over that ML.
