If you know anything about banjoleles you will know how nice these are. Truly one of the best I have ever played and absolutely beautiful to look at. It is in excellent condition. Has one small knick on the headstock but is hard to see. I really hate to sell this and certainly never planned on selling it but I bought a banjo and will be devoting much of my time to that. Comes with a Kala Hard case. $475 Shipped USA Paypal

Looks great! Very tempting even though I'm not a concert guy.

I’m not a concert guy either but I personally have found Concert banjoleles to be much better than any soprano I have played. I’m definitely not a tenor person so I haven’t even really tried many of those.

Would have thought there were more interest in this one

Seriously. Especially considering there may never be any more made. I would offer a trade but I think I only have one I could bear to part with and you probably wouldn't be interested anyway.

I recently pulled this but it is now back up for sale. After playing it more I have fallen in love with the banjo sound and I recently bought a banjo. I am going to be dedicating much of my time to that.

I’m really going to really embarrass myself with the following question (I suppose that’s why I’m still a ‘Junior’ member), but what does the word “bump” mean in ads? I see it many times, sometimes used in a positive sense and then other times like someone did something not according to the rules like “They did this to get ‘bumped’ to the top.” I’ve also seen a seller give their uke a “weekend bump” as well. Is their somewhere I can find information on all this bumping? Thanks, Senior Member Jddewitt81!

Yes some people do a weekend “bump” to get pushed to the top. I am not sure if that is technically allowed. In this case I had listed this for sale but I had decided not to sell because I was torn on keeping it. I decided to go ahead and relist it because I bought a banjo and because I wanted others to see that I relisted it I edited the listing and bumped it to the top. A moderator may better help you answer this question if I haven’t done so but that’s generally what bumping is.

Bumping a pretty standard forum practice on most sites. It is generally frowned upon if you do it too often, but the occasional bump is typically fine.

Dana- every time a new comment is added to a thread, that thread is "bumped" to the top of the first page of the forum. When you see a seller say "bump" or "weekend bump" they are leaving that comment for the express purpose of returning their add to the top of the forum.

Okay. I got it! I thought that it might mean that the instrument was reduced in price. No, a bump is a way of keeping an instrument in a better, top, location on the listing. Mahalo, Ukulele Ernie.

That seems like a steal. That thing sounds good, too. Maybe a video, Jon?

I just bought a Bart Rieter banjo and my Wunderkammer is being built as we speak. I am really trying to clear stuff out and only focus on a select few. This is a great banjolele. One of the nicest I have seen no doubt. Dennis is a master! It deserves a good home.

I wish there were more reviews or videos of this instrument.

A new one would be around $900, that is if I can ever get the time to do any building again. I had forgotten how nice it sounded.

Ok folks, this box is big and it is heavy. I will cover standard ground shipping but if you want priority then you will need to pay the extra. The uke isn’t incredibly heavy but the case is. This is such a nice instrument and I really do not have a high priority in selling it. If you want it for what I am asking then great. If not then I will keep it. It really isn’t a huge deal and the more I talk about it the more I think I should probably just keep it anyway! I will not sacrifice packaging or box size. I want it to arrive in one piece.
