FS: Ko'olau CE-1 Baritone Ukulele - $1250 Shipped!

Pretty rare. These don't come up for sale very often. Take advantage of this opportunity to own this fine instrument.

Well-known chambered semi-acoustic design.
Solid Koa top
Solid Mahogany chambered body
Rosewood fretboard.
L.R. Baggs Active Pickup sounds wonderful though FX, pedals, etc.
Bridge Boneheads for classy look and easy string change
The adornment on the headstock is a high quality decal which can easily be removed.
Solid ebony volume knob
Gorgeous satin finish
Ko'olau Sealed Tuners

Presently loaded with Southcoast Linears GCEA
Ships in Custom Ko'olau Hard Case (also in great condition)

Scale length: 20 1/2"

I have a Ko'olau CE-1 Tenor and it is a GREAT uke! If you are thinking about this uke, you will not be disappointed.

Thanks, Tiger, I appreciate the positive endorsement.

really nice i wish i had the money for it. I have seen demos of it sounds nice
although id like to hear it in standard bari tuning. I thought the RISA LP at 800 was
alot pretty expensive than again you pay a lot for quality. I'm sure you will sell it soon
its a great intstrument. I wish i was rich.

I have both a myrtle and a Koa Ko'olau CE-1 Tenor and they are GREAT ukuleles! If you are thinking about this uke, you will not be disappointed.

Not to mention that James Hill just bought a CE Koolau baritone from Andrew at HMS in late 2013 and it will be featured on the recordings for his upcoming CD! Get ready for the baritone wave in autumn 2014 thanks to Mr. Hill.

Nope. No radius. Flat fretboard.

Bump. Bump. Bump.

I can't believe this uke is still available! It sounds amazing, plays like butter, and a side benefit for those with kids is it can be played unplugged with enough volume to hear yourself but not loud enough to disturb others.

Thanks for the support on the CE-1. It is really a remarkable instrument. The only reason that I am letting it go is because we're downsizing dramatically and I simply don't have the room or the resources to own as many instruments. I know that someone will enjoy this fine ukulele in the future.

This would make a great Father's Day gift! Buy it and make this father happy! :-)
