I'm parting with a few of my ukuleles to help pay for some of the new ones I've purchased.

This one is particularly difficult to part with as I have enjoyed playing it quite a bit. It's solid mahogany T, B&S with a solid mahogany neck and rosewood fretboard, bridge and bridge pins, abalone rosette and tortoise shell binding top and bottom. Tusq saddle and a bone nut,
The action is very comfortable, as is the neck carve - nice and slim, but not as slim as on my Kiwaya tenor. A very nice compromise between the round necks and the flat necks I've played. It's a well balanced tenor when played sitting down - but I've also added an ebony end pin and a Waverly ebony strap button at the neck heel.

The sealed mechanical tuners work and hold the tune well, but they can be finicky at times. The uke has some minor play wear, no cracks. It also shows slight signs of the side wood crinkling a little in the waist when the pieces were being bent in the process of making the wood. The book-matching on the back is off axis a few degrees - but this too is purely a cosmetic consideration. I've tried to get pictures of it but it's not too easy to see. The nut also has a slight gap between it and the fretboard on the bass side but the uke intones nicely so it, too, is a cosmetic issue IMO.

The tone on this sweet tenor is classic mahogany - very warm and rich. Not too loud, but with decent volume nonetheless and nice sustain.

I've kept it humidified and stored in the hardshell case, which is included.

I'm asking $260 shipped to CONUS via USPS - Paypal preferred, I'll eat the fees.

PM me if you have any questions. Please - I've taken pains to represent this ukulele as honestly and thoroughly as possible. If you have any concerns, bring them up BEFORE you buy it.

Links to quite a few photos below. I just took these photos this afternoon though I forgot to add a date card
