I'm thinning the tenor herd quite a bit as I've found a couple that I absolutely love...thus, I have some that get no play. So, first off, a ukulele I bought from UU user Tudrop. It's a Bruce Wei (one of the Vietnamese builders...not to be confused with Antoniotsai, the one who has almost every instrument crack) but set up in the US by Tudrop.

Specs:
Solid mahogany
Maple neck
Rosewood headplate, fingerboard, bridge, & pickguard
Bone nut & saddle
Abalone inlay
Satin finish

I did a review here (http://www.ukuleleunderground.com/forum/showthread.php?47465-D%FCk-Mahogany-Tenor-Cutaway).

I bought it for $250 with a hardshell case. I'm keeping the case for another ukulele so I'm including a gigbag instead (it's a baritone gigbag so there's extra room but the uke will be packed well). Looking to get $150 for it (shipping to continental US included).

As I mentioned in the review, there are a couple of finish issues where the cutaway meets the neck and the side of the pickguards...

Hey Nuprin, If the current hold falls through, I'll take this one off your hands :)
