Selling because this size isn't working for me. It's a beautiful ukulele,
but it's not getting played much now and deserves a home that will play it more.

binding would add to $200 to the base cost.

Wow, stunning instrument. Unfortunately, if I wanted this I would have to sell a kidney.

Wait a minute, we only need one kidney, right?

Good luck with the sale! Someone is going to be awfully lucky with a great deal.

As noted in the original thread, the original owner (@dirtiestkidever) and I had ukes from the same wood built at the same time. They differed only in appointments. I don't really play soprano very much so reluctantly sold mine, but it is a fabulous looking and sounding instrument.
