Aloha all,
Romero Creations Replica Spalted Mango Tenor $975.

Update

5/15/24... I'd like to include a listing from The Ukulele Site for a Custom Pepe Romero ukulele. Discounted from $5200. tp $4500. because of a mark on the headstock.
Yes, I do realize this is really not a fair comparison between the two but check it out anyway.
Now if you can see a big difference in these two then I guess Pepe's is worth 5K. If you can't, possibly I should raise my price, lol!
Pepe's custom-made in CA. Pepe's Replica, made in Vietnam.

Hi again all.
Kimo Ukuleles just sold me a new tenor and a few ukes must be sacrificed. I hate to see this go, but I can't keep them all.
New accessories included.
In my attempt to stay continually in ukulele debt, I must release some instruments so others may have a new home ;)!
Since Replicas are 12-fret instruments, they are the perfect size for traveling.
This is my very beautiful spalted mango Replica tenor. Made in Pepe's Vietnam luthiery and sold and set up by The Ukulele Site.
The construction of this ukulele is just sublime. Gorgeous mango and jet black ebony on the fretboard, bridge, and faceplate.
Pua abalone trim that just sparkles in the right light and Goto UPT tuners.
Heavily compensated saddle with through-the-bridge stringing.
Always kept in a climate-controlled studio (non-smoking house). Always strung with Pepe Romero low G strings.
Fanatical about the care of my instruments, string changes include fretboard conditioning and nut/ tuner oiling.
Wonderful L.R. Baggs pickup system installed at TUS with a new battery.
NO marks, scratches, dings, or bug bites anywhere on the instrument. It's in pristine condition.
New Replicas in Mango now sell for $1369. and the L.R. Baggs pickup installed is $249. which is $1618., yikes!!
Shipping in CONUS is included in the price.
Ask your wife/husband for an early Father's Day/Mother's Day present! Seriously!
If you haven't played a Replica, I guarantee you will be amazed at the sound. Warm, loud, and balanced.
I'll include an Oasis Humidifier and a new set of strings.
Mahalo.
