Selling my DaSilva James Hill Model Tenor ukulele. The uke is in near mint condition.

Incredible eye catching Koa on this DaSilva James Hill Tenor Ukulele. A different type of uke with a different sound due the body depth being slightly wider than the average tenor and the unique James Hill Cutaway is classy on comfortable. If you’re looking for another uke with a different deeper voice, this is the one.

Serial #394 finished in July 2016 Handcrafted of curly Hawaiian Koa wood back and sides and an Adirondack spruce soundboard, The instrument also boasts a faux tortoise shell top and back binding with matching rosette and beautiful accent purfling lines on the top and back of the instrument.. Gaboon Ebony wood fingerboard, bridge, and headstock plate. Gotoh Planetary geared tuners for quick and precise tuning.

There’s small scratch just below the bridge under the e string. The fretboard at the 1st fret around the e string had a repair done at DaSilva’s shop on small indentation that he filled in. Fretboard is flush and smooth and you wouldn’t know there was a repair done. I zoomed into both areas in the pictures

Here’s a link from Ukulele Friend to a sound sample of this instrument: https://ukulelefriend.com/ukes/custom-dasilva-james-hill-tenor-ukulele/

Comes with hardshell case
$3750 $3600 including shipping in conus.

Radius fretboard?
 
I've also listed this uke for sale of Reverb if that help with comfort level for prospective buyers.

 
Hey Randy, what's the nut width and string spacing from G to A?
Thanks,
Pat
 
Looks like just about 1.5 on the nut and sting spacing looks like 1-3/8 possibly 1-4/8. Here’s a couple pics for reference
