My CFO wants me to clear out some ukes before I make another major purchase.

Up for sale is an interesting uke, Harmony taropatch that was repurposed into a concert scale uke by Jake Wildwood at Antebellum Instruments.

Here's the story on how it came to be:

Not sure what happened but it ended up on eBay in the condition it's presently in. The two cracks behind the bridge & the crack on the back haven't moved much. The problem I'm experiencing is that it doesn't really play in tune much past the 4th fret and it buzzes\rattles if you strum her hard. I suspect it's a loose brace. I also suspect that the internal bolt needs to be tightened up so if it does the angle of the neck will be good and the uke should play in tune. It's sat in a humidified case since I got it because I was planning to fix her up but I just don't have the time. Strung with a new set of Aquila Super Nylguts. Bridge was converted to a string through at some point.

$100 OBO shipped in the continental USA via PayPal Gift Payment only. I'm open to any straight across trades on this one.

Damn...wonder why he cut the headstock down?! I'd like to have it as an 8-string!
