Purchased from MGM 2 months ago. $625 shipped. [discounted price on 10/13]. Perfect condition--any wear is virtually imperceptible. I've decided I want a different uke, but this one sounds incredible. Unique NOVA design TENOR ukulele with two front ports and gorgeous flamey Maple. This intriguing looking TENOR I understand is based on one of Augustino Loprinzi's guitar designs. Incorporation a front soundhole and two front port cutouts allows for a vibrant and smooth tonal combination. Bright clear tone from this gorgeous flame Maple ukulele with great clarity and note separation. Projection is better than any uke I've ever played. Built with utmost care by the father-daughter team of Augustino and Donna this is well crafted and a joy to play with outstanding intoantion and nice easy low action. Strung with aquila strings in Low G. Solid ebony fretboard and smooth satin finish add to the beauty of this ukulele Here's a sound file of the very uke I'm selling: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pwsKuXYLbtk. Comes with foam/hardcase and herco humidifier.

BTW, even though I had dreamed about this uke for about six months after seeing it at ukefest, I am selling, bc I just learned about Moore Bettahs, and now I really want one of those and am raising $ for it.

yes, totally sweet, and you can't buy this from anyone but Loprinzi at this point, and it goes for $825, I believe.

If you want to propose a trade, you can, but I would only trade for something better, while throwing in cash.

I'm dropping the price so that it's an even $200 discount, even though it's practically new. $625

Sorry if this has been posted before, but in case you are not familiar with Loprinzi, here's a great article on his history with ukes: http://www.sptimes.com/2002/01/21/Floridian/The_Duke_of_Uke.shtml
