    Default SOLD 2011 Pepe Romero koa tenor

    This is delightful and limited availability 2011 Pepe Romero tenor with a figured koa body. Condition is essentially the same as the day it left Pepeís shop. It has seen limited playing time since new in 2011 from HMS. Itís extremely light and very responsive/beautiful clarity on each note ALL the way up the neck. Pepe uses his reverse fan bracing in his ukes. The bridge, fretboard, binding, and headstock overlay are all rosewood and the tuners are Peghed brand. RWB purling on top. It has a beautiful custom rosette. There are 12 frets to the body and 18 frets overall. Top and side MOP markers are at the 5,7,10 frets. The neck is mahogany and the finish is an amazing hand-finished glossy French polish with no nicks, scratches, or dings in it. Note: As a hand-made instrument is has a couple light tool marks and not all grains are 100% filled. Comes with the original hard shell case which is in perfect shape. Currently, I have it strung with (and prefer) South Coast Medium Lights but I will also include a new set of La Bella tenor strings, the stock strings that Pepe uses.

    Here is a video review of this very instrument by MGM.


    Perfect balance of highs and lows, warmth and clarity. It has a low setup and is just over 2 mm at the 12th so easy to play.

    Itís an outstanding instrument. But, I find I havenít been playing it much. I might be sorry I sold this, but I need to reduce my number of tenors, so time to re-home. Hereís a chance to get a Pepe Romero koa tenor in essentially new condition, at big discount. If you have been waiting for nice one at a good price, this is it.

    Update: SOLD shipped Continental US, UPS Ground.

    Hi Doc,
    Are you entertaining trades or is this for sale only?

    I've got a few coming in, so I'm not really looking to trade, unless it is something really special.

    PM me.
