    Default WTT Glyph koa concert

    I've contacted a few members regarding their pohaku ukes.
    No one wants to give them up

    So I guess I'll just have to spread my net bigger. Looking to get a less expensive uke so if you have any of the following ukes shoot me a PM for a trade ( I'd like a concert with a concert scale but might consider a soprano):

    Pohaku
    Kepasa
    Covered bridge
    Ono
    Boat paddle
    Collings
    Black bear
    Griffin
    Donaldson
    David Newton


    I have a glyph koa concert.

    There is a scratch/dent on the headstock which is hardly visible because the finish did not scratch off and it's behind the strings. Just wanted to say that so no surprises. It's very minor.

    These glyphs pretty hard to find.

    Koa back, sides, top.
    Abalone rosette, dots on 5th,7th,10th frets.
    Peghed tuners.
    Really really excellent construction.
    Black binding with 2 thin gold/yellow stripes.

    Comes with a nice stagg hardcase.

    Here's a pic of the headstock. The dent is behind the G and C strings.

    I'm really looking for a trade but if i were to sell it would be $1150 shipped to CONUS.

    Yup, I just saw that. I already have a soprano which I love so I cant see myself forking over $$ again for another one. But it does look fantastic.
    Looks like Pete has increased his prices by quite a bit it seems.
    Hopefully someone has something to trade or cash to buy this glyph. need cash!

    This is a beauty and an amazing deal. Glyphs are easily some of the best instruments out there. They are light and beautifully built with impeccable workmanship. Above all, the sound, balance and intonation are unsurpassed. Good luck with the sale.

    Yup everything you said.
    The lightness and balance were the first things i noticed when i picked it up from the case. Its 14oz the same weight as the pohaku soprano coolkayaker linked above!
    It almost looks like it was made by machines. There are no "maker marks" or any of that sort.

    Is that a base model? By that I mean we're there any upgrades when you ordered it?
