I bought this John Morton tenor resonator ukulele from Lil' Rev last year. This is the instrument that he plays in this video. It is in great shape and comes with an extra cone. Well padded case.

Being the owner of 4 resonator ukuleles, I decided that it is time to cut down a bit.
The German Silver does need polishing but there are no dents, scratches etc on this well maintained ukulele.

The few dealers that carry these list them for about $1800. This ukulele is available for $1350 plus shipping

Wow John. Wow. Wish I had the money for this. Morton builds resos like no-one else. Ask Del Rey. Someone getting a super deal here.

Yes, Del Rey plays Phillips and those are beautiful too. The nut width is 1 1/4".

Update, I found out that you clean this with window cleaner and a soft cloth. Five minutes, some window cleaner and an old handkerchief made this thing shinier

I got a chance to play one of these Morton resos at the West Coast Uke retreat in 2015 and I've been drooling over them since. Best of luck with your sale John. If this is the one you are selling, the others must be amazing!

I would love to keep this one in the seasonista family, but I'm on a strict one in, one out diet at the moment. Phooey!

I don't know what an Armstong model is? I'm really not looking for trades. I only play tenor sized ukes. I have a Kamaka tenor, Kamaka 8 string tenor, a Kala tenor and 4 tenors with resonators.

I just looked up the "Armstrong" model. Those have tear drop shaped sound holes. This is not an Armstrong model. The sound holes are round.
