SSHHHHHH!!!! Keep this on the low-low. I lost on a baritone on his last sale. Lol... But he did have a bunch of antiques for sale last time. Uke's that were made in the 30's-50's and other stuff. Some Nunes ones I believe. I did research on those ukes and wow, some real collector's items. Great prices, but as always, at the last moment, bidders blow up the prices.

I got the Hano Hano Kanile'a, I think I am going to pass on the other concert. All I need is a Superior and a Tiple and I have a whole set from Joe.


The other concert is a super early kanile'a if I did not have one already I would go after it, it has the pre-SM bracing no logo and old label.

The Tony is a bitchen Uke as well should go for at least 900-1100.

I hope that it is, I like the 6 string sonny D which would be a great group instrument where all I play is backropund chords. BUt I am going to try for the Tony most of all.

He has another ~10 waves of 15 or more coming, at least thats what I have heard from someone who has seen the collection.

Its going to be a expensive couple months for me. I sent him a email asking to buy what ever kanile'a or ko'olaus that he had left but he is adamant about selling them on ebay.

Chances are he is the one who has been buying up all the high dollar stuff on ebay oer the last couple years, it looks like it match's according to others research. When I get the first one in house I will feel comfortable buying a few more from him.

I bought one of his ukes on eBay the other day, and await with fingers crossed. He got super indignant when I emailed him beforehand some very reasonable questions which neither his auction description nor crappy photos answered. And his shipping charges, $40, which I now see have climbed to $45, are exorbitant for ukes, even if he IS paying to have them "professionally" packed (which in my experience usually means inadequately). I'll post how my purchase comes out in the wash, but he's a prickly pear for sure. Caveat emptor!

Anyone read his feedback? The one negative one is.... interesting. Especially when you view the Kamaka in question and can find no such cracks. It makes buying any of the others a bit more of a gamble IMO if he's not forthcoming with information you need like "Oh yeah, it's broken."

I think you will find that not everyone is so happy, mine came in more banged up then he said in the suggestion. I fixed it on my dime because it was a rare one and I really wanted it but very much unhappy with the whole transaction.

Seems as though his son in Folsom, CA is handling his auctions and that's where they're actually shipping from. Anyone know?

Mine are coming through Folsom, and the son is the shipper the dad the seller but that fact is not clear when dealing with them.

Yeah, well check out the feedback on THAT one (Item #200220410125):

"moreukes" feedback (http://feedback.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewFeedback2&userid=moreukes)

The uke I bought from this guy had undisclosed damage, definitely not from shipping. I was able to repair it myself, but still... It's a great axe, and I'm very happy with it, but the seller is definitely NOT to be trusted. And the negative feedbacks are starting to pile up. There will be more. He's dumping a lot of ukes in a hasty effort to raise cash, and he's not describing them well, and there is virtually NO communicating with this guy.

Yeah, I noticed that. I like looking at his ukuleles but I wouldn't feel safe bidding on them.
