    Default Mya-Moe Koa Chocolate Heart Mango Tenor for sale<SOLD>

    I have a Mya-Moe Koa tenor tradition for sale. It has the wood upgrade as well as the vintage tortoise binding upgrade that they won't do any more. It is a sweet uke and in perfect condition. I am the first owner and it is as new as when I got it. It was delivered in August 2011. It is number #580. My pictures are from my cell phone.



    Better pictures can be seen on their site:

    It includes a black weave UkeCrazy hard case and all the documentation that came with it. $1100 firm delivered in the continental US, no trades please. You can just send me a check ( I'll send right away if you are a regular here or hold the check 5 days to let it clear before I send ) or if you use PayPal please add the 3-5% fee depending on what you use for the funding source.



    Reason for selling: I am standardizing on one Uke, Collins. I find that my learning suffers when I switch from Uke to Uke.

    so lovely John, sorry to see you selling this but I understand your desire to be totally comfortable with the one uke. This one is a ripper and won't last long. If I had the cash I'd buy it in an instant, but I'm awaiting a custom within the next month or so.

    As a side issue, I wonder why Gordon and Char decided to do away with the binding options for the 'tradition' models...guess it was slowing them down and too fiddly maybe. This one is certainly a one off..don't know of any other choc heart mangos with the tortoise binding. Yummy.

    Thanks Jon. It was a hard decision to sell but I am a player and not a collector so I would rather it go to a new home where it will be used and loved. I was really amazed how switching from one uke to the other really negatively impacted my timing and accuracy. I love this Uke but I really have more interest in progressing than collecting these beautiful instruments.

    more than 'bright and clean' I would say rich, deep and resonant, huge volume and projection and sustain that goes forever. They are light as a feather and have a tone that one could only describe as warm and sweet.... you know you want one...resistance is futile

    Mahalo Nui Eugene,
    I also look for a balanced tone with clear note separation.....you see any difference in the sound in different models or is it just asthetics.....I know you have or had many of them..
