SOLD!!

This very nice tenor ukulele displays a wonderful grain in the wood and is trimmed with abalone front and back. I don't know who the builder is, since some small custom builders don't put their names on the instrument. It is a great player, with good volume and a sweet tone. It has geared tuners. A Protec type case is included. This uke is a pleasure to play, and is the perfect upgrade for folks that have started with an entry level asian import and now want a real handmade piece.


Thanks for looking.

Yes, solid. I don't know where or when it was made. Either does the previous owner. Sometimes, part of an instrument's mojo is the mystery of it! It plays as nice as it looks.

This type of build typically costs $1500 or more. Frankly, I got it from someone who was selling a lot of stuff, and it was a great deal. I'm selling it for what I paid, so it's still a smokin' deal.

EDIT:

Someone inquired about defects, so under full disclosure, and further close inspection, I found a couple of scratches. They are very minor, and this is a used instrument, don't forget. They are on the back of the neck. One is a wear spot from a bad wall hanger, and the other is a long thin scratch that doesn't go through the finish but is visible. In sunlight, a few finish checks are starting to appear, but they are not detectable by feel, and are not cracks. They are, in most lighting, not visible. I also added a pic to show the nice wood grain in the fingerboard.

Unfortunately due to an unforseen circumstance (my car's transmission is going so I need to have it replaced), I've had to forego this uke. I sent a PM to Bluke earlier apologizing. If it's still available in a month or two I'll definitely be getting it.

That sucks. I hate all these "responsible" expenses...taking up money I could be spending on ukuleles. I saw the video of you opening your sceptre...she's a beaut!

If you really need to sell it I have 400$ ready. But I told myself I would not spend anymore on this Uke. I understand completely if you cant go that low but I thought it was worth a shot.

Let me know if you are interested but like I said I promised myself a 400$ limit this time.

Bluke

When you get your 'permission and stuff' together, PM me.

Man, that's a great sounding instrument. If I hadnt ordered another Mainland, 2 days ago, I would probably be taking this off your hands. Sounds great!!! Hope you find someone that will love it!!

can i plug this into an amp?

Bluke
11-25-2009, 01:54 PM
Only after you install a pickup of your choice.

ovationfanatic
11-25-2009, 02:16 PM
does adding a pickup do anything bad to the uke?

Bluke
11-25-2009, 03:50 PM
no. it makes it louder when you connect it to an amplifier with a wire.

ovationfanatic
11-28-2009, 10:06 PM
i'm moving soon, so i might have to buy it like probably late, maybe in a month or 2

Bluke

Amazingly, after all this time and all the replies, this uke is still available for sale! It's in Santa Barbara, CA if you're nearby. But, I'll ship it to you.

Well I'll be the first to say it then. The intonation sounds off. maybe that's why it's still available?

I'm not so sure it's the intoantion but rather the low g that you're hearing.

Bluke
01-26-2010, 08:49 AM
I must add that that sound clip is embarrassing. I had on the wrong low G string, which flopped around, and I was out of tune, and made plenty of mistakes, but I posted it anyway simply to demonstrate tone.
