Ok, finally got around to taking the pictures!

I also own an HF3 Tenor. I bought them both to compare what I liked to play, and the tenor won. This concert Kamaka is a lovely, lovely instrument with a really warm tone and I've got mixed emotions about letting it go, but I'm moving more towards electric (les paul, risa) and haven't touched this in two months, so...it's time. Make me an offer. I put the price down because there had to be one, but I'm wide open. Make me an offer.

Well cared for, humidified in cold weather, never played except in my studio/office. Never even opened the case outside the office. Came straight from Mim. Mostly used to play Bach.

I just saw the requirement for the handwritten note. I'll put that up tomorrow, when I'm back in my office where the instrument is.

Take the 1600 with a grain of salt. They're 1700 new, so offer me what you think it's worth.

oh, I also have the original Kamaka Warrantee card, never sent in.
 
Required proof of ownership shots added.
 
FYI one of these sold used here on UU for 1250 in 2012. They probably cost around 1300 or 1400 back then.
 
Just my two cents here: $1800 new for the HF-2L. Considering it’s still a concert, and not a tenor (even though it’s a tenor scale) I think this would be purchased as a concert, so the market is a bit smaller. Tenors usually sell pretty quick. I’d estimate you’d get somewhere around $1150-$1300 for this HF-2L.
 
Please clarify ”Shipping: No”. Is this pick up only?

I agree. The tone is that of a concert ukulele. The smaller body is neat. I really like it. I just don't need it.
 
Here I am playing my transcription of Back Cello Suite 2 Prelude. My playing isn't fantastic but you can hear the great intonation and tone of the instrument.

 

there another bach thing I did today, Prelude in C, with plenty of mistakes :)
 
Also open to straight trade for kamaka h3 tenor, or martin 2tk koa tenor.

also open to trade for risa lp, + cash.
