---SOLD---

Well, I had to go and buy Eugeneukulele's "The Flying Owl" so now I need to sell off one or two to keep the wife happy...!!! Ha! Ha! Ha!

I am reluctantly offering my DonMo "Rustbucket" baritone resonator w/PU. It was made by Don Morrison, a very gifted musician and luthier who lives in Australia. Here is a link to Don's web site:

The instrument is constructed of galvanized sheet metal that Don salvages from old buildings. It's sound is best described as "loud and in your face"...!!! It plays very easily. I judge the relative playability of an instrument by how well or how hard it is for me to barre all 4 strings at the 5th fret. In the video soundbite, you can see I have no trouble with that. Here is a link to my YouTube channel for a soundbite:

The instrument has a passive pickup, the kind or type of which I do not know. I bought this from Elderly and they must have not known it had a pickup as they didn't advertise it as such. It is probably a transducer pickup but again, I don't know.

This instrument has no cracks...Ha! Ha! Ha! That's supposed to be funny...!!! :rolleyes:

There are no issues with the instrument.

Includes a semi-hard well-padded zipper case.

Asking $900. and I will pay shipping within CONUS. I accept and prefer PayPal.

Thanks for looking...!!!

No worries- it is going (again) to a great home, and will lead to more opportunities for your dog to sing- total bonus ;)

Congrats on the owl, it will have more FF miles than me soon! If I weren't uke poor I would snatch this resonator up! Hope it too finds a good home.

I never heard anything sing like that "OWL." If I were more into bluegrass and country, a Bluegrass maple uke would be a "must have."
