Hello!

First off, Happy Thanksgiving! Hope your week goes well.

Well, I tried a baritone recently and now I am on the hunt for one.

I am looking for an ALL solid woods baritone, no laminates please.

Also, I have two ukes that I could offer in trade if you are interested:

1. Augustino Loprinzi - All Mahogany - Longneck Soprano

2. Bruko - All Maple - Thinbody Soprano

Let me know what you have!

Thanks,

Kendall

I'd go with the Kamaka bari that John Sargent is selling... but if you really wanted to go out of the norm, I'd look for a Giannini baritone on eBay... they're not that hard to find, not that expensive, but pretty good for the price! The vintage tone you get is so much different and possibly better than the modern ukes today
Giannini built these with solid mahogany and "laminated" the backs and sides with cypress, which isn't as bad as it sounds (because factories today have distorted the term "laminate") and gives an extra sweetness to the tone, not to mention reinforcing the sides and back. Look it up!

I know you think mine is a bit pricy (it is solid Koa and 40 + years old). Have you checked out Paul's? http://forum.ukuleleunderground.com/showthread.php?102385-FS-Pono-Baritone-Pro-Classic
This baritone looks very nice.

Paul's is super nice, but a little out of my price range! Thanks!

Still looking!

Hey, thanks everybody!

My cash limit is no more than $400.

Could do a little better than that if someone wants to take a soprano or two in trade plus cash!

Call Kilin. He has some top quality used Pono Baritones and might take something on a trade.
