If this is truly $500 + shipping and not a typo for $1500, I'll take it. Please PM me if that is the case. :)

Right, the price is obviously 1500, but that doesn't seem right either. Gryphon has a new one for $1255. How much was the pickup?

Haha, best of luck with the sale! Beautiful instrument!

Historically, Fishman Matrix Infinity pickups go for about $250 installed. (Which is why it was reasonable to float the idea of the price actually being something other than $1500...one can wish!)

A new Tenor longneck would be more than $1,500.00 ! With tax, shipping and Fishman, and case. You would be looking at almost $1,800.00. You better check your figures again, Ixyc2001.

Oh~~Sorry, I think it's HF-3.
Longneck is more expansive than HF-3.

Hf-3L is around 1345 before tax...the shipping and pickup are extra...so probably around 1600 to 1650 for a brand new one plus or minus 100-200...the Gryphon one is 1255 without shipping tax and pickup...yours is one of the prettier ones i have seen. What is the production date? How much has it been played? Any wear?

No wear and tear, played by me only. Kept in hard shell case. Can't tell production date as battery pack to pick-up blocking the date. I ordered this Uke in the first couple of weeks in August 2011, so I could pick it up at Kamaka on my birthday the end of Sept. it's in pristine condition. Never played professionally.

"Never played professionally" When I decide to sell one of mine I think I'll advertised "Never played well". At an open mic one night I introduced my Kamaka 8 string with "This instrument sounds beautiful when it is played properly, but lets not worry about that tonight."

Time to bring attention back to the instrument. That is a great uke. If I didn't have a regular Kamaka tenor with the factory pickup I would probably be on this. In 5 years it won't matter if it was made in 2011 or 2013.
