Selling my Ohana CK-450QEL. It's a great uke, very sweet sound, but I'm selling to fund a custom purchase. All-solid eucalyptus with abalone purfling and mahogany binding. Mahogany neck with a quilted eucalyptus stripe. Bone nut and saddle, abalone hibiscus inlay on the fretboard. Side dot markers at 5, 7, 10, and 12. Originally purchased from Uke Republic with their great setup. I purchased it second-hand from a local music store in Nashville (there were Uke Republic tags in the case), but apart from a slight chip in the finish on the heel (shown in pics), it looks brand new. Comes with Ohana hardcase with cool palm tree logo embroidery. Currently strung with M600 Martin fluorocarbons, but like most Ohanas, it also sounded great with the stock Aquilas. Gloss finish, very comfortable to play up and down the neck; comfort edge on the lower bout. These were originally $900, but are now selling for $619 by Mim.

I'd like $500 for this uke, as shipping will likely cost me $100, or close to it. Willing to sell for $400 if you cover shipping costs/want to do a local pickup. I'll drive a reasonable distance to drop off; I'm located in central California. Stored in case with Boveda when not in use.

I, too, have thew Ohana Quilted Ukulele Concert model - I trusted Mim to pick mine out and set it up - and I love it.

I don't have the Ohana case, however; Mine is eiher in a Gator, or a Crossrock Fiberglass... Can't remember which. (Currently covered by a pile of clothing, as I start packing house...)

I'll chime in and say that I really like my QEL 450. Such a beautiful looking instrument! And it sounds and plays great too.
