Howdy all,
We just recieved a bunch of nice ukes that ain't quite right. Our logo is an odd greenish color and they have small scratches and/or minor glue marks. Most have scratches on the side of the headstock where they were laid on something sharp.They are also a little darker in color than I wanted.

Otherwise they are nice ukes, solid mahoagny sopranos with a passive under-saddle pick-up. The electronics are loud and clear.

Originally $260, now only $200 while they last.

Tell 'em to screw up the concerts next time--those prices could get over my aversion to rope binding!

BTW, thanks for pointing out your seconds to us, I wish more would do that. I picked up an Ohana concert mahogany from Elderly for $125 because of a small cosmetic blemish, and all I could think afterwards, was, what a great find.

wow .. I really like the matte finish but I have become attached to Matilda, so I guess I will keep her.

Dear All,
This is a sweet little Uke at a great price.

Ah Mike, you make my UAS start itching again. I really like those amber-coloured instruments. And I've even made peace with sopranos. Just a matter of the wallet to deal with.

I feel ya, braddah. Even though it's becoming glaringly obvious that I'm a tenor person I would totally love to have one of those.

Nice! Hope you let me play it on the 26th. Gotta say though, I don't plan on giving it back.

I played one today at the Utah Ukulele Association meetup. I've never played a soprano that sounded good (to me) in the upper registers. Always gets way too tinny even in uke relative terms. But this one was clear and nice. Great neck width at the nut, unlike the Kala sopranos I've been testing. I'll be getting one ASAP.
