Wow. This is a real beautiful cigar box uke. Very.

Just wondering why you also have a concert for sale for $30 more? Is it just because the purple heart laminate with the concert is more valuable than the ebony in this tenor?

Good question. The purple concert has a black rosette, and that's a $25 add on.
The standard price for any box uke with a poplar neck (soprano, concert, tenor) is $295, then +$25 for a rosette, +$25 for binding around the body, and +$25 for the curly maple neck.

On a side note, it DOES take time for the purple heart to turn purple. Once you cut or sand it, it turns to PUKE color! Let it sit for a week and it turns a nice purple... until you sand it again ;-)

I was thinking, what is that slight tinge of brown near the heelcap? Nearing the joint of the neck and the body*

Lexxy, that's a beauty mark!

Actually it's a "wormy" spot in the maple. I could have easily taken it out, but I left it in because it gives character.

Hahaha! A signature look aye?

Looks great! Is the finish nitro or poly? Any sound samples?

What is the height of the strings at the 18th fret? Very beautiful instrument.

I'm not in my shop but I can measure it this afternoon. Do you like it high or low? I can always "dial it in" to your liking.

height of strings at the last fret is just under 3/16". Sound clip added on initial post.
