I picked this beauty up on a whim, while playing through a bunch of ukes at Aloha City. It sounded better than some of the ukes more than 2-3x the price that I pulled off the wall and certainly better than all than the Pono, Ohana, etc. at similar price points.

It's in damn-near mint condition, minus a small scuff below the saddle. Maybe 10-15 hours of playtime on it. I'm in full-on downsizing mode, so this one needs a home where it'll get played as it deserves.

I currently have it strung low G with Oasis Warms; beautiful sound and a ton of projection, intonation is great across the board. I think my favorite aspect of this uke is the sustain and the string clarity; the cedar compliments the Pau ferro (which has a tighter density than rosewood) to create a warm but focused sound. I'm (mainly) working on the Kobayashi Bossa Nova book, so balance and string clarity was really important to me. It's also just a hell of a good looking uke (I wish my elite myrtle was as pretty). Set-up by Matt at Aloha City.

Retails for $380. Selling here for $250 and will split shipping costs.

It does not, but at this price you could add one (if desired) and still be under retail.
