For sale is a lightly used Monkey Wrench 19" electric, steel string, solid body, long scale (19") tenor. It is in like-new condition with no dings, dents, or scratches. Sweet instrument, but I rarely play amped. Very cool, well constructed uke. All Monkey Wrench ukuleles are individual, handmade, unique, made in America and built to last. These artisan quality, solid body instruments are large enough to hold and are comfortable to play.

The tone of this uke is outstanding. Here is a sound sample run through my Yamaha THR-5A using a Blue Snowflake to record.

That's a beauty. Somebody should snap that up. I've been plenty pleased with my Konablaster but I have to admit this one is a wee bit more refined.These 19" electrics are great for DGBE tuning too with the right strings. Good luck with the sale.

Doc, do you know what steel strings are on it?

Hi Patrick,

I don't know what those particular strings are. But, I do have a set of Ernie Ball Regular Slinky (10 13 17 26) as a replacement set, matching the string diameters it came with.
