I am selling my first Brüko #6. I recently acquired another one and have decided to let the first go. It is in pristine cosmetic condition and recently strung with Worth Browns.

It is a typical Brüko #6 - boomy, barky, and loud - with a large personality that refuses to be subdued.

The action was in the stratosphere when I first bought it, but over time I have lowered it with each string change and now it is only moderately high, but very playable.

This sale includes a Rock Gig Bag.
$115.00 plus $25.00 to ship 2-day priority anywhere in the CONUS.

What a little beauty.
I see it's a one piece bridge/saddle!
I assume you're saying you sanded the saddle to lower the action... Intonation is not adjustable?
Wondering what players think of this...?

Yes, filing and sanding the the top of the saddle is the only way to lower the action on these Brüko standard models. No way to compensate the saddle. In spite of that, these are great instruments and a great value for a solid wood ukulele. The intonation on this model is pretty spot-on and the action, although still a bit high, around 3mm at the 12th fret, it is still quite playable.

I like the No 6 especially for playing early music. It you search Wilfried Welti on YouTube, you can see what I am mean.

A sound sample.
Please excuse the faulty playing. I am still a beginner!

I love all Brukos, especially the number 6.
The action and intonation is usually spot on from the factory. But there is personal preference. :)

I had one of these, which I bought here off the Marketplace. I actually regret getting rid of that one. These are great and highly recommended especially at that price. Good luck on the sale!

I have decided to take this item off the marketplace for a while.
If you are interested though, please PM me.
Thanks everyone!
