I want a Tenor Surf Fluke for US$250 Total - including shipping to Brisbane QLD Australia.

If not new, in as near new condition as possible.

Am I being unreasonable?

New - good luck

Used - if you are very lucky and patient, anything can be found.

What's a reasonable price for one? I'm not talking retail. How much do you think the Tenor Surf Fluke is worth?

It's not worth much to me because I really don't like them. You have to ask yourself how much it's worth to you.

I primarily like the action and intonation of the fluke. For me to get one In Australia is looking to cost me $370 including shipping (which is the killer, about $50). I want a Tenor, the only one I've been able to get my hands on here in Australia is a soprano.

Maybe I should drop my preference for the Tiki King artwork - which is quite a selling point for me.

You're paying $200 for the ukulele and the rest is for the art. You have to decide what's important to you.

Hi Michael, I bought my Fluke directly from Fleamarket music at $147... ask if they've got any seconds. Mine was a second but even looking at it closely I can hardly notice the slight flaw in the wood. Mine was just a regular Fluke, not the Surf one. Postage by Express post to Brisbane was $42, but that included two fairly heavy books, so I'm guessing it would be a bit cheaper with just the Fluke. Good luck!

I just wanted to follow up that I'm almost achieving my request for a Tenor Surf Fluke for $250. I'm getting a Tenor Lava Fluke for $205~ (AUD) including postage. Very pleased.

I'll try to remember to post a shot of what I get.

Oh - and I got the deal by asking for a second. Thanks again for the tip!
