This beautiful, near-mint Koaloha crown bridge tenor uke was purchased new in 2004 and has never been taken out of the home. The crown bridge is no longer being made and these are rare and hard to come by! The uke is loud and has great action and intonation. All koa with ebony fretboard. 15 frets to the body. The roomy fretboard lets you meet your musical challenges with ease! Great for those with larger hands. Currently strung reentrant with Aquilas. Gig bag included.

This is a great uke and it just doesn't get enough play time. Would like to re-home it where it will get the attention it deserves.

$1000 shipped, continental U.S. only. Will consider other destinations if buyer agrees to pay actual shipping cost. Paypal only, please.

Hi all, as a longtime poster I just wanted to chime in to vouch for the uke and the seller.

That's a real beauty. KoAloha sometimes goes above and beyond on their bridges.

Gorgeous. And they sound heavenly. Somebody should snap this one up at that price. (I’m not in acquisition mode now, sadly.)

I have a crown bridge one dated 2006 and it has a 1 piece top and bottom. Yours should be too. They have been making 2 peice top and bottoms probably over 10 years.

These are rare and should be considered very desirable so, if any member was thinking of a KoAloha tenor...buy this one.

Just my opinion, not affiliated in this sale.

When you say, "near mint," what makes it less than mint?

It's very tempting, but I already have a KTM-00. That crown bridge is gorgeous...

Hi ukerocker,
Sent you a PM but it's not showing in my Sent box - newbie forum member & would hate to miss out on this superb uke - did you hear from me?
Cheers,
