I keep an eye on a few craigslists, one of which is atlanta GA, where my folks are. This is a pretty sweet price for a mainland, even if it is a second. Hope it helps someone.

The "2nds" desription is what I posted for the Honeybee factory seconds, but this shows a classic mahogany pineapple?

and I'm pretty sure I've never sold this uke as a "factory 2nd."

Mike, It's a 2nd from the Atlanta "factory". I was hoping you wouldn't find out...:p

Let us know what you find out, HJ.

I'm a little concerned that since the desription was just lifted word for word from our site for a different uke and doesn't fit the pineapple, that maybe it was stolen or is a scam.

I just noticed it's even our photo lifted from the Mainland site.

If they respond to my email. I will visit in my biker get-up. A 270 pound guy with a big beard riding a Harley can be intimidating. But then again, I'll be going to look at a ukulele.

I am currently imagining Hells Angels with ukuleles singing in falsetto.

John, if they get back to you, maybe you could turn the contact info over to Mike to follow up with this if he wants to. Best of luck to both of you

I contacted ukerepublic and he told me that this same ad is posted in chicago and boston I think. But then again I had a lot of kids talking to me as well. I still haven't heard from the seller.
