    How old is the uke? I am sure Koaloha has made changes to their instruments over the years including tuners, or maybe just the buttons. Maybe there is a tuner that they used for a while that has...

    I have never done this, but I can recall a few UUers getting a deal at pawn shops on the islands. Might be worth a try, but you should know what you are buying.

    Thanks wickedwahine. I can see the benifit somewhat now, mostly with the distibution of the information to all the cities/agencies. Other than that maybe the unalterable proof of ownership.

    Wow you seem to really know the seller and Chuck, to speak for them in this way. If the seller did what you think he did, then you also need to think about the risk involved in this. Do you think...

    He is an awsome guy for sure. I hope to one day shake his hand. I was lucky enough to get onto his next build schedule, starting a week or so later, when I got mine a few years ago.

    Depends on your definition of decent. I would say no at that price point, unless you stumbled upon a deal on a used uke.
