This is a William King Concert. Mahogany body and neck, koa binding, black/white/black purfling, ebony fretboard and bridge, and ebony crown inlay on headstock. MOP rosette and fret markers. Fifteen inch scale. One piece top and one piece back. Label indicates Model A4v6, built in 2007, but I believe it is a prototype of the5940559406594075940859409 Nunes body style. Very minor strum wear, otherwise pristine. Black Ko'olau hard case included. $1,200.00, plus shipping.

I have one of King's custom scale tenors (between tenor and baritone). Incredible instrument, King really made great stuff! Someone should snag this and I wonder if King will ever build again. He has essentially disappeared off the Internet and I called a few places in Texas, no one has heard from him, any contact info is not good as I have been trying to reach him. If I didn't have some custom concerts already I'd snag it.

Wondering what kind of strings are on it?

It has Ko'olau strings right now. As I recall, it came with Worth medium browns.
