Hello, due to some financial reasons, I'm forced to part with my Monkey Wrench steel string solid body tenor. This thing is a blast to play and sounds great...she'll be missed! Plus the spalted maple is so pretty!

Bought it in March 2011 for $600. Hoping to get $450 for it. I'm including the strap (LIGHTNING!) and case shown in the pictures. Free shipping within the continental US.

Full disclosure, when I bought it, the nut had a hairline crack on the treble side. It has never presented any problems so I never did anything about it. See pictures below. Otherwise this is in excellent condition.

Here's the thread I created when I ordered it:

To be honest Sam, I'm not 100%. I don't think it does as I don't notice a difference going between this and another uke with a flat fretboard. BUT, all of the ukes on his "Ukes For Sale" show a 16" radius which makes me question myself. When I get back from work tonight I'll take a flat edge to it and report back.

Sam, it is a flat fretboard...no radius.

Realized I was wrong about the purchase price...I thought $750 but old emails show $600. So, dropping the sell price to $500.

Thank you for letting me know. It is a lovely Uke!
