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 extraordinary that it's a laminate.

Its intonation is excellent; its action is low; it plays fast up a shallow D-shaped neck; in short, it is a pleasure to play. Here's a sample: https://soundcloud.com/user92796094/kiwaya-ks-1-sound-sample

It is strung with Martin M600s, and it will come with a better than usual gig bag (good padding throughout, plush interior, strong seams and zippers).

I really thought this was going to be my go-to summer-on-the-water soprano, but when it comes down to it, I just can't give up my beat old Bruko.

$200 gets the Kiwaya (and its bag) shipped to your door, CONUS.

Any questions, give me a shout.

Cheers, UU.
