    Here's a link that I found, it's the original listing at HMS. The guys at HMS raved about this instrument when they saw it at NAMM https://www.theukulelesite.com/astur...-sc-10976.html
    Happy to be an Intermediate Newbie, Penny

    Yes indeed, that is the very instrument. Pity they took down Corey’s sound sample - he can make any uke sound good but he really made this baby sing.

    Ah, bless you shanmoon! Thanks so much. This is the actual uke I am selling.
    FYI It was originally strung in high G when Corey Fujimoto recorded this sound sample.
    For my sound sample I had restrung it in low-G - that's my preference - with Savarez tenor for the strings 1 & 2, a South Coast medium-gauge flat wound for the 3, and a Thomastik-Infeld CF30 chrome steel flat wound guitar string for the 4. Listening to Corey play it in high G reminds me how flexible this instrument can be - lighter and brighter like a concert or richer and mellower like a tenor, depending on the string choice. I'm impressed with how faithfully the LR Bagges 5.0 pickup that HMS installed reproduces the acoustics through an amp.

    'Tis a lovely ukulele. You may want to think about posting an actual asking price. I believe it would be helpful to prospective buyers.

    Default Asking price!

    Okay, thanks for the suggestion, stevejfc, as I said earlier in the thread I paid over US$2,000 for this in 2017.
    I have also been told the market for high-end ukes has "softened" and that this brand - regardless of its very high quality and excellent condition - is not well known outside Japan.
    Bearing all this in mind, it seems realistic to ask US$1,400.
    You'll be delighted to own such a fine uke at such a reasonable price.

    I'm keen to sell this beauty (I just got married - expenses to cover!), so please if anyone who truly appreciates a great quality uke is lurking, please make an offer ASAP or forever hold your peace - then it's reluctantly off to eBay for me!
    Just reminding you:

    Hi folks, thanks for all the help and supportive comments and messages. Selling here makes for a far more pleasant and personal experience than elsewhere. Unfortunately it didn't work out this time so this excellent uke is now taking its chances on the big bad world of eBay. But I'm still downsizing so there will be more to come!
    Cheers for now.

    Default Getting a solid offer

    If still without a solid offer, perhaps buyers need to have a start point for what you reasonably want to get for the beautiful ukulele and go from there. Just my opinion based on scanning the site for years, but few if any sales (have purchased a couple, though). Good luck!

    Post #16 has asking price of $1400.

    OP, you should edit your original post to show this price. Many looking at the first post will not read on without the price.
