    Default Ono Custom Claro Walnut/Port Orford Cedar 18" Scale Tenor

    I am selling my mint condition Ono Custom Claro Walnut/Port Orford Cedar 18" Scale Tenor ukulele handmade by David Ingalls in Ashland, Oregon. This particular uke was featured at last year's UGH here on Oahu. It has a side sound port, radiused and cantilevered fretboard, Gotoh UPT tuners with black knobs(I had Joel over at HMS change them because the original Gotoh UPTs had white knobs), and LR Baggs 5.0 active pickup.

    This uke looks, sounds, and plays great! The only reason that I am selling it is because I can't stand the looks of traditional headstocks. I LOVE slotted headstocks! I am also selling my only other non-slothead uke as well.

    Here is a link to Kalei Gamiao playing this exact uke:

    This uke is no longer available

    Wow. Great opportunity for somebody to jump to the head of the line. You must have some incredible ukes to let this one go over a headstock.

    Just curious, what strings and tuning do you have on it?

    Great deal on a beautiful custom Ono! That Walnut is amazing!

    I have an 18" scale Ono that David completed for me earlier this year. For those wanting a bit more vertical space as you go up the neck, this scale is very easy to adapt to, coming from a standard 17" scale.

    Good luck with the sale Kimo!

    Aloha Jim,

    It's strung up with a Thomas-Infeld CF-30 flat wound Low G and Oasis brights. This is a great sounding uke! Dave's custom handmade instruments are probably the best value for a quality custom instrument on the market today. He just made his first slothead uke, so I may have to order one soon!

    Mahalo,

    Kimo

    I agree with this and had the pleasure of playing this at UGH last year. Somebody's going to be very, very happy!
    More an appreciator of the ukulele than a true player. My motto is: "Don't matter how good it ring if it ain't got some bling."

    Sorry folks! I forgot to include in my descriptive that this uke has an LR Baggs 5.0 active pickup, which was professionally installed by HMS.
