Hello - I'm working on thinning the herd quite a bit as I'm investing in some custom ukes, so you'll be seeing a few of my prized ukuleles going up for sale here.

For sale is a Koaloha Red Label Tenor with Bear Claw spruce over a great set of koa for the back and sides and an abalone rosette. The condition is as minty as you can get for a "used" ukulele as it's either been in its case with a Boveda pack or on my ukulele wall in a room that's temperature and humidity controlled at 68-72 degrees and 48-52% humidity. It comes with the original Oahu hard case that it shipped with.

This tenor has that classic punchy tone that you expect from a Koaloha with added articulation you get from a spruce top instead of koa.

These instruments don't come along frequently at all these days, so here's your chance to grab one now!

Asking price is **** USD which includes shipping within CONUS. Anything above or for shipping outside CONUS will need to be covered by the buyer.

Wow, that spruce is beautiful. I'm not even a wood nerd really. Just stunning spruce. GLWS.

Whats Up with the wings on the K on the headstock inlay. That a red label thing? Looks cool!

Thanks! I believe the Red and Black labels have it.
