Loprinzi custom built concert - Rosewood/Sprucetop, very similar to MRS model currently listed for 1300.00. I've decided to take this one off the market.

Rick, I can't believe you haven't sold this! A Rosewood/Spruce uke is so sweet and a Loprinzi custom too! If I didn't have such big paws I'd try a smaller uke but I think I am destined to play baritone.

Bob, those big paws sure bring out a big tone on your harp! Yeah, I've had 5 Loprinzis, a few sold quickly and some of the more rare ones I can't seem to give away! Actually, I did give away a model 2 NAAM custom tenor a year ago. (Actually, I traded it to a mandolin playing friend to get him started on uke, the guitar he traded I pretty much gave away!)

Since I restrung I've been playing this concert all afternoon. It has a sweet bright tone, don't delay, I may have to find space for 3 concerts! If you have ever played a Loprinzi you know how comfortable they are, light and easy to play, I can live with 2 of them.

Mouthy, did you grab that custom Loprinzi? Sure wish I had the dough, I love those 12 fret Martin style ukes!

Bob, about the separation, it's not a crack or damage, the book matched top is very slightly separated, very slight, hardly noticeable, looks like the glue didn't quite get there. See the pics

I pm'd and my box was full. I asked for another pm attempt after I cleared my box but haven't goten a response. I played a mohag. Soprano today and it was amazing. I played every kamaka they make plus some$ 5k stuff and it still shined. Rbeetsme, if u can resnd your pm to me.

I only played on other Loprinzi before I got the great deal on my tenor - it is just superbly made. If you do get it, contact the LoPrinzi's - they are really good about honoring warranty & even sometime on second owners. At any rate, you will be getting a great uke at a very reasonable price.

Ok. Not many responses on this one, I think I'm going to keep it awhile, I might send it down to Donna for a once over.
