    Fluke ad

    Saw this verbiage in a tenor Fluke ad on eBay:

    "Like the concert, the tenor easily accommodates GCEA tuning but can also handle the lower DGBE tuning (high D)".

    Old Kanilea

    Saw this one on eBay, an older Kanilea. Guy says it's a super concert, the label only says K-1. Bridge and fretboard look like koa, is that right?
