OK, I know this is not the right way to market here as this is my first post, but I have it marketed on the Mandolin Cafe and one interested party suggested I list it here. So you can check out my posts over on that forum (I use my real name there also) if you want to get a sense of who I am. So here is the ad:

I bought this tenor Uke while on vacation in Hawaii a couple years ago. It sounds insanely good, but alas, guitar, banjo and mandolins have my time consumed and this is essentially unplayed. It has been maintained in my humidified music room and desperately tries to attract my attention. It needs a new home with a player!!

Feel free to ask me any questions and if you need additional photos, I am happy to send them.

Includes the hard case with the cloth outside thing if you know what I mean. It came with the Uke. $775 shipped and Paypal'd

I always liked the bow-tie bridges on the older Koalohas. They seem to seemlessly fade into the soundboard to me. Great price on a great ukulele. Good luck with the sale.

Hey Ken, Welcome to the forums! This certainly is the place to sell it but since it is your first post and no one really knows you, you would need to post a pic with your info on it. (it's here http://forum.ukuleleunderground.com/showthread.php?74890-How-to-Sell-Ukuleles-in-the-Marketplace-READ-BEFORE-POSTING) Hope this helps and welcome aboard!

....must not buy another Koaloha....must not buy another....

Looks fab! Hope, for my sake (and yours of course ;) ) that it sells fast!

Is it just me, or do I see Billy Gibbons' (from ZZ-Top..) beard in that 2nd image?!
:anyone: In any case, Doos & the shop boyz definitely carved her out of'a pretty damn sick set - nice ribbons! Somebody grab her & save me from slapping myself..

See! It is possible to join UU, list something for sale in your very first post, and still come across as a thoroughly decent and honest chap.

Good luck with the sale, Ken. I can't see it remaining unsold for long.

That's a beauty. If I didn't have a Boat Paddle on order I think this would be gone by now...

or if I hadn't moved to guitar playing:) LOL!

THis is a great deal.
To the OP: Is this a factory second?

I'm actually in the market for a new uke. How can we further discuss the terms of sale?
Thanks,

Welcome to UU!

Would you mind posting a picture of the label inside the sound hole? Also, do you know the sate it was manufactured? This is usually stamped at the base of the neck, inside the sound hole.

Yukon, not a factory second. Where are you in Alaska Neighbor?

That looks lovely, Ken...and I don't even LIKE tenors!

I'm sure it'll get snapped up at that price.

Thanks everyone! The item sold on the Mandolin Café. This is a great bunch of folks you have around here. I still have my father-in-law's 50's Martin Uke so maybe I need to hang out here and learn a bit about playing! Of course if I do that I will really regret selling this one!!!

I won't delete this ad until the item is delivered and accepted.
