    Default bad planning...world's greatest uke for sale ko'olau CS

    So I have an LFDM, a Wolverton, a Vento AND a Devine coming -- even though I ordered them at very different times, they are all ready at just about the same time, and I'm also facing some steep property expenses. So I have to sell something, maybe even some of these new ones. I am considering the sale of something I barely touched and had considered untouchable--a Ko'olau CS, made of unbelievably beautiful curly koa. Corey and Aaron at HMS both said that this was one of the best ukes they had ever played, and they have played thousands, including some of the legendary ukes like Jake's personal Kamaka. It is amazingly well-balanced. Its sweet spot is everywhere. I've played a lot of high end ukes, and it doesn't get better than this--this is truly on another level. I am the first and only owner. I am the first and only owner and played it for about 45 minutes total, very gingerly--probably less than the guys at HMS. PS, if I win the powerball tonight, this uke is no longer for sale...ever.

    Here is the original review: http://theukulelereview.com/2013/04/...-best-ukulele/ SOLD

    plus shipping and only no fee paypal. With binding and fretboard upgrade, this instrument is worth .Koolau-CS-Koa1.jpgKoolau-CS-Koa-2.jpgKoolau-CS-Koa3.jpg

    I've already done this, Daniel and have some other things in process. My goal is in the end just to have a few ukes anyhow, so there's a good chance that I'll sell some or most of the ones I mentioned. Ideally, I would like to see what they are like before I sell them though--you probably know by now that for me, I just like to try and don't have a lot of time to play.

    Out of curiosity what is the fretboard made of?
    A singerís voice is not to be measured by how pretty it sounds,
    it is to be measured by the story it tells through the singing.
    (Paraphrased from Sam Cooke)




    Great Deals with; specialk13, rbeetsme, David Newton, grendel1972, Doc_J

    I think it's honduran rosewood--hard to see in the photos, but it has some really cool figure in it. The shape of the neck is great. It is the most comfortable neck I have ever experienced

    I agree...trying out a new uke you've been waiting for is too fun to give up!!
