About This Listing

Mele handcrafted koa 8-string ukulele with autographs – complete outfit 

Here is an all solid koa instrument designed in Hawaii and assembled in the Philippines. It’s an older instrument that could increase in value in the future. Additionally, it could increase in value because it is autographed by Jim Beloff, a great ukulele performing musician and even greater author of ukulele songbooks. Also included are two of Jim’s songbooks, autographed, and in mint condition. 

Here is information from the builder’s website (): 

“All the features of the 4- and 6-string tenors plus the fullest tone of all; all 4 notes are doubled (G and C in octaves, E and A in unison). Solid koa top, back and sides. Stable hand-carved steel-reinforced mahogany neck. Ebony bridge, fingerboard and binding. The ideal instrument for strumming rich-sounding chords. Beautiful four-on-a-plate Grover die-cast geared tuners with Pearloid buttons.”

  • Mele handcrafted koa 8-string ukulele (retail $899)
