I am selling my (http://www.kalabrand.com/Models/Kala/SolidCedarTopAcacia/DetailsPageSpruceCedarAcacia.html) (kala info).

I bought this tenor from UkeRepublic this summer and my version is a matte finish, not the gloss one.

I like the sound, but it isn't getting much play time. This summer I am bringing another uke up so this uke will just sit in its case not getting played. I'd rather see someone play it, than let it sit.

I'd like to get $220 obo plus shipping. I am in Alaska and the only shipping option I have is USPS. Uke would be insured and shipped quickest way that you'd be willing to pay. I sent a uke earlier this year to Hawaii and it cost me $30 with insurance. So that is probably what you would be looking at.

Here are some pictures (I will get some more up soon with a sound sample from the iphone as well as the index card)

BTW, my low post count is misleading. I once had over 14k posts here on UU as haolejohn. So I am honest.

If I didn't already have the gloss version I'd be on it! This is one heck of a uke for the price. And WITH the case.

Strings might be freemonts but not sure. I know they aren't stock or ghs. I had mike change them out. He recommended a newer string company. It is a high G.

I have one (gloss, but satin is fine), and it's a great ukulele. Volume, tone, looks, excellent playability. The neck is perfect for my large hands, and my wife's small hands. The tuners work great, and people love the way it looks. I have a tweed case for all of my ukes (Stagg). One cool package!

Here is a link to my FB page. https://www.facebook.com/john.eller.58?ref=tn_tnmn I uploaded the video there and can't figure out how to get it here using the iPhone or the iPad.

What strings do you have on your Kala Uke?

Also, any chance of seeing a picture of the side or back?

Thanks.

as mentioned earlier, not sure of the strings. I think they are freemonts but not sure. Mike suggested the brand (he had just started carrying them at that time).
I meant to get pictures of the back and side up yesterday, but it slipped my mind after shooting the video. I'll get those up later today.

Here are some more pics. Sorry about the wrong date. I live in the bush and I wasn't sure of the date. I thought it might have been the 5th. I was wrong.

This is the only fault I could find. It is a small ding from changing the strings. Not bad, doesn't bother me.

Thanks for posting the extra pics. I agree with you. The mark is so minor. No big deal. Just finishing a buy on a Pono MT so not sure I will pick this as well. Although, I am tempted.
