Considering selling my Mya-moe Striped Myrtle Tenor Classic #1643. Beautiful, flawlessly built, with great sound. In like-new condition without scratches, dings, or dents of any kind. I made a review of this instrument last May when I got it. http://forum.ukuleleunderground.com/showthread.php?107221-short-NUD-review-Mya-moe-Striped-Myrtle-Tenor-1643
Tough to let this one go, but down-sizing my ukes.

Here's the specs:
* Striped Myrtle top, back & sides
* Walnut body binding
* Walnut rosette
* Hand-rubbed oil finish
* Radiused Ebony fretboard with Walnut binding & Abalone markers
* Mahogany neck
* Geared machine head tuners with amber buttons
* Walnut & Maple Signature Headplate
* K&K Twin Spot pickup
* Mya-moe Hard Case

I recorded a little sound sample in B tuning:

Here's a very recent sound sample in C tuning.:

Paid $1600 new last May, would consider selling for $1350 + shipping.

Not in the market for a tenor, but -- I just wanted to express how phenomenal it sounds in the lower tuning! It's no doubt a matter of preference, but I'm amazed at how B, Bb, and A tunings seem to tonally enhance tenors (my own included, Bb in that case).

This is also a gorgeous instrument.
