    You need to post actual pic of your uke not a pic from the factory website .
    Your pic also need to be taken today with a handwritten note to proof the date.
    Please read UU rules.

    There I go again, offending the gods of one or more websites.

    I copied and pasted that from elsewhere, in a hurry to get it out.

    Oh Booli. lol. You're good guy, but pick a lane will ya?

    They're $14 more than this, new, on the Mainland website. The due diligence here was zero.

    FYI:

    New from Mainland = $239 +~$15 shipping

    +

    Hard-foam case = ~$35 +~$10 shipping

    THUS

    $225 w/case, plus shipping seems a good deal compared to the above referenced prices which add up to $299.

    Thanks Booli. Yes, I think $225 is a pretty fair price for the uke and case.

    My rule of thumb has been 65% of new for a used non vintage instrument. Adjusted lower if there is any significant signs of use. Plus shipping.

    Kamaka pineapple gold label - 1950s
    Kamaka custom soprano, gold label. 1960s?
    Mele pineapple - koa and mahogany - modern
    Kamaka tenor - 2002
    Mele, Braddah tenor 1990s
    Slingerland banjolele Maybell - 1920s

    This is the result of several conversations with UU members of considerable standing. Of course one can ask what one wants and then the asking is usually negotiable. Adding cases etc helps, plus maybe free shipping.
