    FS: Maui Music Deluxe Tenor All Curly Koa

    Ohana Ukuleles

    That narrow nut width is the only thing that keeps me away from an Ohana. And shopping through Mims ensures you'll get a good one- at a good price- and set up right!!

    Okay so I want a Makai lt80 strictly for the esthetics, no other reason. Talk me out of it. Please.

    I'm in the same boat! I know I would NOT sound like Marco playing it! And to be honest, I am not that crazy about the body grain- but I love the rest of the appearance- especially the face of it- and the purfling!

    Am I guessing you want one of these after seeing Marco Cirillo's YouTube tutorials? I know- I love that uke! That's exactly why I want one too, the esthetics of it- nothing more!

    Dangerous stuff making ukuleles.

    Wow, sorry to hear of this episode, Ken- you scared me when you started talking about sawing and resawing- I could just guess what was to follow... having run a finger through a tablesaw myself while cutting some Western Cedar into blanks for Native American Flutes! Fractured one bone & chipped...

    Double NUD day! :-)

    Thanks! Both are fantastic ukes- and really, fantastic bargains, especially the LoPrinzi, bearing in mind that I detailed every aspect of it! From the tortiseshell binding- to the arched fingerboard, nut width, single neck ebony reinforcement stripe, etc. And only $750 or so- with a hardshell case!

    Which Tenor to set up as a High-G?

    I've got 3 Tenor ukes- an Enya Pro Carbon, an Anuenue AMM-3- and a Romero Grand Tenor. The Enya is strung with a Hi-G setup, but the two other much nicer ukes are both set up as a low G, as they came. I've been mulling over setting up one of the other two as a High-G, just to have a nicer uke...
