    Default FSOT: LFDM Bear-claw Spruce top Tenor Ukulele

    Hello, my ukulele friends, I hope everyone is staying safe during this difficult time.

    Up for your consideration is an LFDM Bear-claw Spruce top Tenor Ukulele. I am still in the exploring phase of my ukulele journey, I enjoyed LFDM ukulele so much, still I can not justify owning two, I would like to try something new.

    I purchased this ukulele from forum member theblackegg in February 2020, the ukulele was build mid- 2019.


    This ukulele has top specs, a lot of upgrade:

    - Tenor scale
    - BearClaw Spruce top
    - Radius Ebony fretboard with Koa inlay at the 12th
    - Koa faceplate, binding front, back, bound board and Laskin armrest
    - Koa Rosette
    - Rosewood classical style bridge
    - Gotoh stealth tuners
    - Strung low g, soloist with carbon C,E and A
    - Ziricote back and sides with side port
    - Mahogany neck
    - Moore Bettah String set
    - Kingsman Hard-shell case


    Make sure to watch this video review and sound sample I made for you guys, I hope it finds a good home.

    I consider trade it down to a Kamaka hf3 ( preferably build after 2015 )

    It's lovely. If it was still in the UK I would find it irresistible.

    Yes, shame it moved out of the UK, as I would also have been interested. Not many LFDMs in the UK and another gone now.

    Good luck with your sale.

    Obviously. They are then subject to import tax and vat which adds considerably to the cost.

    I have significantly lowered the price for the inconvenience of duty and tax, I think of it as paying "rent" for owning this beautiful instrument.
    I've never been taxed for private sales, only when I purchase from HMS.

    Private sales into the UK do get taxed, I've had to pay it. Just don't want anyone to get caught out.

    This is a beauty and it will sell no problem. You were well within your rights to buy it and equally to sell it to anywhere and anyone who can afford it

    Hi Ukujiji,

    I do own an immaculate Kamaka HF-3 tenor. That has great looking koa that shimmers and has depth to it, it also sounds terrific.

    If you are interested in a trade plus $, I am interested in discussing one. I bought it from HMS December 2017. With full setup. It came with a Kamaka case. It was made in the same year.

    I can take photos if you are interested.

    Your mailbox is full, I'm sure with other offers for your beautiful LFDM
