    Default FS: Ohana TK-35 Solid Mahogany Tenor

    For sale: Ohana TK-35 all solid mahogany tenor . EDIT: SOLD!

    Please note: This instrument is "B" stock. It has a few minor cosmetic imperfections, but is otherwise perfectly sound. (And sounding...)

    My wife and I have a severe case of UAS, and are trying to combat it by parting with some of our instruments that don't see a lot of play time, but certainly deserve to be played. I purchased this instrument new in 2017 from Elderly Instruments, in Lansing, MI. It was my go-to tenor until I realized that I very much prefer concert scale instruments.



    All solid mahogany top back and sides, in matte finish, tenor scale. Geared closed back tuners, tie-bar bridge.

    As noted at the top, this is technically a B-stock instrument. Ohana sometimes has some instruments that have a few blemishes and can't pass normal inspection but they are otherwise structurally sound. This one has a few finish imperfections here and there, but nothing glaringly wrong and they just give it more character. It has a little strum wear on the fretboard, and a bit of shine on the base side of the upper bout from play.



    It sounds and plays great, but I just don't really play it these days. Currently strung high-G with Fremont Blackline fluorocarbon strings. It has lived its entire life in a smoke-free, pet-free, climate controlled home, with special attention paid to humidification.

    $180 shipped via USPS, with canvas covered foam-core case included, to the lower 48. (Paypal preferred.) The fingerboard and bridge are rosewood, so I don't want to deal with paperwork headache of shipping this ex-US. If you are interested, send me a DM, and thanks for looking!


    More pictures can be found in this gallery.

    (All measurements made by me, using a caliper)
    Nut width: 36 mm
    A-to-G string spacing: 28.5 mm
    Frets to body: 14
    Frets total: 19
    Outward markers: 5-7-10-12-15
    Side dots: 5-7-10-12


    EDITED to insert pics and link.

    I just got the same one but won't be seeing it until I go back to my home country at the end of year... So your post just made me even more impatient to try it out

    The Ohana -35 series are great instruments, particularly for their price. We actually own the SK-35, the CK-35, and are now selling off the TK-35. It was our little family of Ohanas, or an Ohana Ohana, if you will. (Since ohana is the Hawaiian word for family...)

    I hope you have safe travels home and can enjoy your tenor!
