    Default Pohaku - Soprano - Cedar/Walnut

    Hello! I am putting my prized Pohaku soprano up for grabs!

    Full disclosure, I had it up a couple months ago along with a Koaloha soprano. The Koaloha soprano sold, and I took the Pohaku down and closed the thread. Well, I am in need of some cash to make another purchase...once again.

    As stated in the past, I am on the hunt for a double bass. I have finally found what I am looking for, but I am a little shy of making it happen. Trying to generate the cash to make the purchase.

    I was asking $875 shipped a couple months ago, but now I am willing to take a hit in order to get closer to the upright bass.

    I purchased this ukulele directly from Peter Hurney earlier at the tale end of spring.

    Here is his write up from his website:

    This really is a special soprano. Beautiful cedar and flamed walnut. Mahogany neck. Peghed tuners. Sounds awesome, and plays wonderfully - loud!

    $725 shipped for this beauty!

    Oh man! You've got this back up. This is a great deal. You'll get that double bass.

    Very very happy with the KoAloha KSM-00C I got from you! You've had some nice ukes!

    Thanks CPG, that KoAloha is a good one!

    I realize this may not be the best place to mention it, but in my pursuit of raising cash for a bass, I am selling a DJI Spark drone in great condition! Anybody interested? I’ll give UU members a great deal!

    What a beautiful little soprano.
    How is the cedar top holding up under what looks like a matte finish?
    Will you post a better top photo, and give us a sound sample?

    I wish I could trade you something... but understand your eyes on the double bass prize!
    Anyone want a Kiwaya KTS-7 (Martin 3 copy) for a similar price? No longer available, HMS sold them for $1250...

    They cedar top is blemish free, holding up just fine under the GLOSS top.

    Don’t have a sound sample, but could send a short video via cell phone to anyone interested, thanks!
