Bosko and Honey Auctions, Ko’olau CE1: Ukulele Window Shopping

Bosko and Honey are auctioning off ukuleles to raise funds for their Safari. First up is a Kiwaya KC-4.

The solid body Ko’olau CE-1 is a very nice piece of work.

Broken Lanikai LU-21TE. Asking price: $95,000. If you’re thinking of buying it, I have some magic beans you might be interested in.

I can’t begin to imagine how it’s possible to play one comfortably, but that’s not going to stop me wanting a Harmony Aero ukulele.

A pair of Lyon & Healy 5Ks.

    Al; I’ve played a couple Harmony Aero Ukes and a couple great repros of them and, oddly enough, they aren’t that hard to hold and, even odder, they sound great.

    Still, I don’t have a hat to go with one, so…

    Well, someone must have used some magic beans. I just checked
    & it went for $10.00US. At that price, the buyer can
    afford a fedora to go with it.

    Craig: I think this hat might do the trick.

    Ron: That’s a shame. I think the seller should have held out for at least $50,000.

Got something to say?
