Selling my Lili'u. Purchased new from Mandolin Brothers this past February; build date of August '12. In mint condition. These go (I think) for $1,395, and I'm asking $925 shipped and insured to CONUS only. No issues, comes with newer Kamaka brand case.

Sounds awesome and plays effortlessly, even with Kamaka strings:

With Worth Clears; I have sets of both strings I'll include:

It's all good, Stan da Man. Thanks brotha. Just gotta climb outta debt over here but it's not dire or anything. Haha. I still have a few untouchables that I'll never sell. Too many ukes, too little time. I just can't play them all.

what is the current asking price?

Pushhhhhhh. I'm just not playing this. Still in same condition as earlier listed. Asking $995 shipped and insured CONUS. That's still $400 bucks off a new one; which, incidentally would be in pretty much the same exact condition as this one considering I've barely played it… and I mean that. Not sure if a six string is right for you? Buy this one; unlike me who just has to buy everything new for some dumb reason :rolleyes:

Someone buy this, it is an awesome sounding ukulele. I know I have one. The fullness of sound that these Kamaka six strings produce will blow you away.

Thanks, Dana and TA!

Here's an awesome sound sample in which I boggle the lyrics, rhythm, and overall exquisite aura of an awesome song. This is so embarrassing, but it's been posted before. Worth Clears on it in this one:

Matt, as I said in the Links and Videos section back when you posted this before, awesome job. Don't be so hard on yourself. I thought it was fantastic. And the six string sound goes great with the song. So great in fact, I still don't know why you're selling it. There are a few songs that I play on my Liliu that just don't sound the same on a four string. For that reason, I will always try to keep it in my harem of ukes.

I knew I should not have watched the video, that is one nice uke. Keep it.

Thanks again, guys. This sad, barely played ukulele will be moving to FMM most likely tomorrow. Wish it was a Moore Bettah so I'd be making a $400 profit instead of a probably greater than $400 loss on a basically pristine six-stringer ;)

Haven't had a single solitary offer on this. Advice to those unsure about buying a brand new Hawaiian 6-string uke (and who may have to sell it after deciding it's not for them): don't. ;)

It's a fine uke and will sell; perhaps in a couple of weeks when the tax refunds start coming in?

hang in there. there is just not as big a market for the 8 and even less for the 6. most don't know how great they are. I've really been tempted by this so I hope someone buys this soon. My uke fund isn't quite there, but i HAVE AN OFFER ON ONE, SO WHO KNOWS.

I'll be honest with you. If I had the funds I'd have bought this. I do agree with your assessment though. Don't buy a Hawaiian k brand 6 string unless you know it's for you.

I was at a house concert last weekend where one of the artists (several CD's and years of touring) had a 12 string guitar that was missing 5 strings. Other than the Bottom E string, all the doubles were removed.
It could be just as easy to play this as a 4 string uke.
With this realization, I am kicking myself. A few years ago I passed on an inexpensive used Ron Philips 5 string Tenor resonator uke.

Man I played this model once. It was so awesome. I want it badly, but $1000 is hard to come by.

Tell me about it. Haha. Easier to come up with than $1,400, though. Looking like this thing is gonna have to go to EBay. I'd really prefer not to go that route, but I'm not having any luck with anything on UU anymore. The price, as currently set, minus fees and shipping, is already at a greater than $500 loss on my end :(

Oh man. Can you message me the bottom dollar? I'm working some overtime this month. Not sure if I can get it. But I'll crunch some numbers.

I thought I'd bump this because I'd love to have it but alas, funds are short. I'm hoping someone will buy it and put me out of my misery.

Thanks, David! I've had some luck the past couple weeks with moving stuff, so someone should buy this poor neglected ukulele… preferably someone on the east coast :rolleyes:

Too bad, I already have a 6 string.....nice uke and a pretty good price!!
Have a Kamaka 8 string and love it! Suprised it has not sold.

Yeah it is too bad! Lol. $925? Anyone? How about I send the uke to you and pay YOU? Haha. At $925, all-inclusive, you ought to be able to at least try a six-string out if you're not sure and flip it without taking the monumental loss I will be at this price. I wish I had a time machine! It's barely played, I swear! -- Matt

That monstrosity is in a landfill somewhere, as it happens. Or maybe someone lifted it from the back alley before the trash men got to it; who knows? Haha.

Like I said, don't buy new ukes... unless you're prepared to either give them away or suffer endlessly.

I've always wanted a Lili'u. This would be the price to buy at, if I weren't financially embarrassed.

Check that....financially HUMILIATED!!

I'm surprised this one is still available. I've got one and it's defintely a keeper. I love the full sound when strumming. If your looking for a 6 string this is the one to have.

I'm so embarrassed every time I bump this thread. It's been here forever. I never play it; except, incidentally, whenever I bump it- which has been about six times in about a year. Haha. Anyway, got it out again tonight, I did, after many beers in the basement, and it's pretty cool. I'm just gonna keep it. Out of the maybe ten or so ukes I have, nothing can compare to this sound; whether it's good or terrible lol. Cheers! -- Matt PS The strumming technique (or at least the way I play it and have been practicing the six string is different to all my other ukes, in that it takes a more difficult approach. I don't play this one the same way I do other ukes, so I think I'm starting to kind of catch a rhythm to it albeit slowly. Oh, and the real gift here to you all is that I'm gonna close the thread. Haha
