    FS/FT Pono Baritone Nui (BN-2) Mahogany

    Good Afternoon, UU. After a few weeks of deliberation — seven, in case anyone really wants to know — I've decided to sell my Pono Baritone Nui. I thought I had UAS pretty much figured until these came around, and although it gave my Favilla baritone a good run for its money, I think (read...

    FS: Kala Tenor Guitar

    Aloha, UU! Happy 2017 to all. For your consideration I offer my Kala tenor guitar: It's a fun instrument in excellent shape, but I reach for my Favilla baritone more often, and my wife doesn't particularly care for the steel string sound. So... Here are the specs: Solid spruce top...

    FT: Kepasa Madeira

    Aloha, UU. Up for trade is my 2010 Kepasa Madeira, (#074), built by Kevin Crossett in Middlesex, VT. (His site is worth checking out for the eye candy and his thoughts on building: http://kepasaukulele.com/soprano.htm) This soprano has a mahogany body, a Spanish cedar neck, ebony fretboard...

    FS: Ohana SK-21

    I purchased this a while back to take its measurements to use in my own sopranino build. I've got the numbers, so it's time to pass this little guy on. This is a little dynamo of a uke: what it lacks in size it makes up for in pluck (second pun of the night -- alright!). It's solid mahogany...

    FS: Kiwaya KS-1

    After much fretting about -- pun! -- I've decided to sell my simple and beautiful Kiwaya KS-1. It's Kiwaya's basic model, but its build and its tone belies its name. It's clean and light and well balanced, its note separation is excellent, and it has bark if you want it. Really, it's...

    Ohana SK-21 Versatility

    I picked up an SK-21 on the marketplace a while back, and I'm impressed with the range of tunings this little guy will accept, so here's a quick take of the same sample in C, D, and E. (No capo necessary; the scale is short enough that, even at E, the tension doesn't feel that tight. The strings...

    NUD: Kepasa Madeira

    Best pre-blizzard purchase ever! This little guy is a 2010 small-bodied soprano made by VT luthier Kevin Crossett: http://kepasaukulele.com/soprano.htm It's solid mahogany throughout with considerably more bling than I'm used to. A bunch of cool things to note: This uke has a 14" scale...

    Loprinzi tenor w/case on ebay

    I have no horse in this race, but this strikes me as a pretty sweet deal: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Augustino-LoPrinzi-Model-A-Mahogany-Tenor-Ukulele-with-case-/141558028602?ssPageName=ADME:SS:SS:US:3160 I had the mahogany version of this way back when, and it was a great player, really cleanly...

    FS: Wishnevsky Tenor Guitar

    And now for something completely different! This Wishnevsky tenor guitar has a Western red cedar top, black walnut back and sides, three piece (adjustable) neck, slot-esque headstock, and a great, old-school tone: https://soundcloud.com/user92796094/wishnevsky-tenor-cfad-2 It has a 25.5"...

    Boat Paddle Customer Service (and Review)

    I was lucky in a recent trade to acquire a 2010 spruce/walnut Boat Paddle baritone. (Forgive the horrible iPad pics!) When I received it I switched the strings to a re-entrant set, and a buzzing came up in a couple of different spots. (NB: this in no way should impugn the UU member with whom...

    FS: Mainland Mahogany Tenor

    This is a new -- minus my half hour of goofing -- Mainland Mahogany tenor. It has a gloss finish, gold geared tuners, and ebony buttons. It's strung with Aquilas. It came straight from Mike at Mainland Ukes, which means two things: 1. It is well set up. 2. It was one of the prizes in the...

    FS: National Mahogany Resonator Concert

    I bought this uke about six months ago as part of a plan to have a well-rounded collection in terms of sound (Bruko soprano, National concert, KoAloha 6-string tenor, Airline baritone -- not bad, right?), but now it's time to break that collection down. Here are the basic specs, courtesey of...

    FS: KoAloha Imaikalani 6-string Tenor

    So after spending months chasing one of these down, I am putting up my Koaloha six string for sale. This is a 2010 model, which means it has the cool bow tie bridge. You can find all the specs here, with a nice (albeit short) review from HMS...

    FS: Timms 0

    This is a sort of backwards way to begin a FS post, but please know I've gushed about this uke often, and in my enthusiasm have reviewed it twice: http://forum.ukuleleunderground.com/showthread.php?76350-Ken-Timms-Soprano and http://forum.ukuleleunderground.com/showthread.php?91209-Timms-0 So...

    Wishnevsky Tenor Guitar

    Aloha and Happy Holidays, UU! My larger scale ukes seem to demand more and more of my attention these days. With that in mind, I present the following review as a really, really big baritone. This is my red cedar/walnut Wishnevsky tenor (guitar): Here's the buider's site...

    Timms 0

    There seems to be much love for Ken Timms' Martin reproductions these days, and no wonder. I've had mine for about a year, have played it hard and often, and have only one (lame) complaint. But first here're some pics: The pluses for this uke are many, but here are the obvious ones: Light...

    Guadalupe Strings

    This is long overdue, but a couple of months ago I ordered some Guadalupe strings for my Pono MB. For those who don't know, Guadalupe strings are a combination of nylon wound trebles and metal wound basses. They're made in CA, and are -- if I understand correctly -- wound by hand, one string at...

    Harmony Tenor Guitar

    Hey UU, I have a 1950/60s Harmony H1201 Tenor Guitar I'd like to re-home. It has a spruce top, mahogany back and sides, and is generally awesome. This one's been done over: neck reset, bridge reset (with new bridge plate), fret level and dressing, and overspray. It has nice action and plays...
