Folks, this is an amazing ukulele that I LOVE and that I never thought I'd sell. But I am trying to downsize/simplify, and so my Collings will be my only concert-scale instrument. I bought this one new from Acoustic Vibes 6 mos ago, and it has been babied. It is still dead mint, strung with new Worth browns and sounds and plays AMAZING. I upgraded the case to a really super nice Oahu (one of the newer ones, and the best new uke cases available, imho).

Uke and case are offered at $525 plus $20 shipping.

Thanks,

John

Hooray, John. Well done!

Yeah, for once my timing was good. I still remember the KoAloha long neck that came up here a week after I bought my Kiwaya longneck! :)

May we assume this is sold?(although I wouldnt want to make an "ass" out of "u" & "me")
If in fact is is sold...is this a new record? 48 minutes from posting til sale? I

Seems like I've seen a uke sell in less than 1/2 hour on this marketplace. Maybe a Tiki Flea?:anyone:

That is one of the prettiest ukes I have ever seen. Did Old Phart buy it?

It's the quickest I've seen! I've sold 2 ukes where I was PM'd by the buyer quicker than 48 minutes, but ended up taking longer to actually sell due to the payment process (PM'ing Paypal address, etc.). My Kamaka tenor was posted 3/17 at 10:02 PM...got the PM from the buyer 3/17 10:32 PM...30 minutes. I received payment the next day. The quickest I've had though was my KoAloha crown bridge tenor...posted 9/4 7:16 PM...got the PM from the buyer 9/4 7:23...7 minutes is pretty dang fast. Didn't get payment though until 4 days later as it was an international sale and I had to get shipping information.

Yeah. I sold a custom painted Tiki Fluke here a while back in 8 minutes. But way to go Old Phart and West Philly. After all, "you snooze, you lose!"

Yep, money sent - sorry for the delay - I play in a praise band and have to get up at six and stumble off to rehearsal. :)

Hey John, Just wondering if you'd shipped yet. You were going to send me a tracking number yesterday and I haven't heard anything yet.

Thanks,
John

Never mind, just checked today and the tracking number finally showed up in PayPal. Now, if only the USPS actually updated tracking information. LOL

Thanks,
John

Nope! I sold my Eleuke in under 10 minutes from posting to sale a couple of months ago.

Heh, heh. Talk about maddening. I don't know why the USPS even uses tracking numbers since they never seem to update the tracking status until after the item is delivered. This one is still showing as "USPS contacted yada yada" - not even showing the package as having been picked up. When I bought the tenor from GMoney it showed up at a sort facility the day after he shipped, then nothing until after it was delivered to my door almost a week later. I guess it sat in the sorting facility for several days and then got teleported to my door...

I think the tracking for USPS only shows delivery from my experience. It doesn't show "picked up" even when I know it has been picked up. I guess they can learn from Brown and Purple.

The only true tracking that the USPS has is on their express mail. Priority mail only shows that the package was delivered.

I sent a uke by overnight mail via USPS and it was delivered the next day but the tracking never showed it was picked up.

OldePhart

Yeah, that's why I don't get why they even use tracking numbers. Kind of useless if it's not really tracking. Our gov't in action (or inaction - sigh) - and these are the same kinda folks people want managing their health care... - ah well, don't get me started. :)

GRRR - waiting is worse when the &^$$ USPS doesn't update tracking!

It's been a week - still showing no status update - if it doesn't arrive today I'm going to go up to the post office and dance on somebody's desk! :(

Maybe USPS really got mixed up & sent to MY HOUSE!! (I'l never tell!)

AAARRRGH indeed!

Most #s provided by USPS/ebay are not really tracking numbers; they are provided for delivery confirmation. Unless you paid for tracking, which most sellers do not.

Heh, heh. Bite your tongue! I remember it took them almost a week to get that tenor from you to here. I suppose this one coming from Philly will take even longer since it has to cross the Mason-Dixon line - probably has to go through customs... LOL

Thank your stars you are not dealing with Canada Post. You'd be paying double to ship and it would take twice as long.

Yeah, I've heard bad things about that. In fact, I ordered some somewhat rare transistors from a Canadian company to repair a PA head. The only alternative seemed to be to order them from Ireland and pay VAT plus customs. They eventually arrived but it was so long that by the time they'd gotten here I'd all but forgotten I'd ordered them!

Woo-hoo, uke arrived safely in spite of the best efforts of the USPS (the box was pretty badly thrashed, thank goodness the uke was in a hard case).

It's a beaut - I won't get a chance to do proper pictures until this evening.

Mods, you can close this thread.

Thanks John!
