View Full Version : Trade: FS Backpacker for Concert

11-21-2018, 04:11 AM
Beautiful Fred Shields concert size, all mahogany Backpacker ukulele. I've only had this about 2 months, it's in perfect condition. I changed out the strings to D'Addario and played it a few times. I played it enough to know that I miss the sound of wood. My only other ukuleles are 2 concert size Fleas. I love the intonation and sturdiness of the Fleas. But now I want to hear wood :)

The Backpacker is too precious for me, I'm hard on things. I don't want to deal with humidifiers. But I live in New England where the furnace is usually running. I want something I can leave out near my couch, so I can grab it and practice while I'm watching tv. I think I get a lot more practicing done by leaving my uke as available as the tv remote.

So........I'd like to trade the beautiful Backpacker for a concert size all laminate or top wood/body laminate or even an inexpensive all wood. Cash added if necessary.

1 7/16" wide at nut.

$200 shipped if someone wants to buy it. (I paid $250)

Happy Thanksgiving!

Oooh! A few months ago I did have one. I traded it for something else.
