It appears as if all Users and FFMers have secretly joined forces to not purchase this ukulele as noted in the "wish you wouldn't have to sell this one" messages...

I would never try to stop a sale. I've just always enjoyed the music you play on this uke.

I have a Black Bear 3K, more traditionally styled, just like this one. Jon will have another Black Bear down the line, rest assured. It's just time to move this one on. I, for one, can totally relate. It's no big deal. I've been loving mine for the past two months. It's butter all around. If someone's looking for a lifetime soprano, look no further. Aesthetically- easy to see here- Duane's ukes, to me, can't be beat. I've been around the block for a while, and kick myself for not grabbing a Black Bear sooner. They play amazingly and are built to last by a maker who has been in the game longer than virtually any other luthier you'll see posting here on UU- it's true if you do some research. I tend to buy new, so the buying-direct no-credit card/PayPal caveat always got in the way, but I'm glad I finally took a chance last year. Anyway, great price, great uke, and most importantly- great person! Jon's the best person in the world I can think off... so someone ought buy this beauty ASAP! Good luck, you ole Hippie!

Hear, hear!!!! Black Bear ukes have a magic to them that can not be explained. And this one is unique...
I've been eying off my son and wondering how much I could get for him, someone buy this before I do something silly!
