    Default FS: Uke.S.A. Bearclaw AO Soprano By Pops KoAloha

    Posted an interest check for this a couple weeks ago, but am just finally getting around to posting a proper for sale ad. Great uke with fantastic setup/playability and a lovely clear and shimmery tone. I have too many soprano's and just ordered a Blackbird Clara so I need to let this one go.

    PRICE: Decided not advertise as for sale for now, but still feel free to PM if interested as I may change my mind.
    CURRENT PHOTOS: https://photos.app.goo.gl/ea8wfvbph8GVZ9pC7

    This is the bearclaw spruce version of this uke: https://ukesahawaii.com/product/ao-soprano-ukulele/. This one was marked down just because of a single darker colored grain line on one side of the upper bout (see in 2nd photo). This is literally just a color variation, not a flaw, and I was always kind shocked it got discounted for it.

    I am including a nice aftermarket Gator Journeyman case as well as seen in the photos. The uke and the case are in excellent condition. The uke has never left my house, has been played minimally as I have mostly been practicing guitar in recent months, and when not being played has been kept humidifed in the case the entire time I've owned it. Currently strung with Worth Clear Mediums.

    Thanks!

    These are great instruments - I have the WOW and it plays like a hand made Koaloha but even lighter and zingier.

    Thanks robinfowler. Agreed. It's a SUPER nice soprano. I've been playing it more since I listed it and almost pulled the listing yesterday, but decided to keep it up for sale for now just because I really don't need 3 sopranos. Believe it or not I actually had mixed feelings about this one at first, I think just because it was SOOOO different the the mahogany sopranos I was more used to, but has really grown on me and has really opened beautifully in the few months I've had it.

    Lol. Thanks kerneltime. Ya know. I might not. But I just can't play 3 regularly and having exceptionally nice instruments going unplayed stresses me out. My Blackbird Clara purchase fell through though so I'm less motivated to sell this now. That said, I've kinda been wanting a parlor guitar too and may see if I can find another deal on a Clara so...I don't know, I guess I'll keep up for now. Sometimes when I'm on the fence about selling something I just leave it up, and don't lower the price any further and just see what happens.

    Ya know, upon further thought, since my other purchase fell through and I'm feeling less motivated to sell this I'm going to close this thread for now. If someone is interested still feel free to shoot me a message and ask as I keep waivering on this and may still sell it, but I don't want to keep advertising it for sale at the moment since I might not. I'm locking this thread for now. Will open back up if/when I'm feeling more motivated to sell it.
