Hello! I have a really nice Sailor Brand tenor for sale. It has a mahogany top and walnut back/sides. Donna Loprinzi makes these ukes for Mike at Uke Republic. I picked up this uke from the original owner a couple months ago on this marketplace.

I had the Grover friction tuners replaced with Grover geared tuners. It has a fresh set of Living Water Strings with a Fremont squeak less low G. It will come with a fresh set of Aquila strings and the Living Water high g (the nut was not modified for the low G conversion). Also, comes with a gig bag.

This uke has great intonation, volume, and tone. The neck is nice and slender. A real joy to play. The only issue is a small ding on the headstock from the original owner.

I purchased it in order to add a low G to the stable, but I already have a baritone and tenor guitar that fit that niche better for me.

I would like to get $275 for this fine instrument.

My son has a 6 string tenor. It has a solid mahogany top as well. Still haven't heard one better. This uke sounds way better than nearly anything you can get anywhere near this price. Someone is dying to "upgrade" to a quality tenor and this is just their price range.

Someone please buy this uke before UAS forces me to buy it! :)

Seriously, this is a very good price for a great ukulele!
