F/S Mya-Moe #763 Curly Myrtle Tenor Cascade Series with hard shell case
************************************************** ***

OK folks. Up for sale is a real prize. A Mya-Moe Tenor #763

The total description of this Uke can be read in the link below, so no need to repeat, and yes, it has a radius fretboard.

When I questioned Gordon about the wood quality, he said this about this Uke:

"Master Grade is a very subjective determination which we make. We didn’t grade 763 as Master Grade, but it is very close."

FULL DISCLOSURE

I sold this Uke to someone a few weeks back and it was damaged during shipping. The person didn't want to have it repaired so I took it back.

I talked to Gordon at Mya-Moe and he personally recommended Portland Fretworks in Oregon as the people who I should be sending this to for repair. He also uses them when they are too busy to do repairs themselves.

I did so and now have it back. It looks amazing and I can't tell that there was ever a repair. This was the assessment of Todd at Portland Fretworks after the repair.

<<<<< Your uke is done and ready to be shipped home. The repair came out well. I think you will have difficulty locating the crack (although you can see the cleats on the inside) >>>>>


Other than this, this Uke is in wonderful condition, with the only thing being a very slight mark below the bridge when some strings snapped. Otherwise, you are getting a real beauty.

A recent video put out by Mya-Moe said they will be cutting production from approx 350 to approx 220 Ukes. This is your chance to get one now instead of waiting in the queue for a very long time, and at a lower price than you would be paying. (A build on the MM website shows $1650 + shipping amount + the wait time.)

MAKE ME A REASONABLE OFFER. THOSE WHO KNOW ME KNOW I AM GOOD TO DEAL WITH AND HONEST WITH MY ASSESSMENTS.

DON'T BE SHY. IF YOUR OFFER IS UNACCEPTABLE, I WILL MAKE A COUNTER OFFER..

I live in Oregon and have used Portland Fretworks ... THEY ... ARE .... AWESOME! One of the most respected repair and set up places in Oregon. I would trust the work they did in a heartbeat. Good luck with the sale!

What a lovely uke! And what an adventure it's had. Are the photos showing no damage pre-damage photos or post-repair photos?

One of the links (https://www.myamoeukuleles.com/uketr...kingNumber=763) is not working for me.

For trade, you're in the market only for tenors, right?

Mostly tenors, but I would also be interested in KoAloha concerts and a Clara.

Link has been fixed. Thanks for mentioning it.

The pictures are pre-damage. There would be no difference in the pictures post damage. The repair was that good. I can put some up though.

I have gotten many PM's regarding the Uke. I thought I would put together a set of pictures showing the Uke before, during, and after the crack.

The following are pictures of my actual Uke. The differences in shades are different cameras and some were taken inside and some outside.
