This should sell in micro seconds! I would be all over it if it was a Tenor. This is an incredible deal for an exquisite instrument. Geez Jon I hope you are getting somethng way special to replace this one. It will be hard to top it.

Holy Cow! You aren't done selling yet? Ummmm, I wonder what you are going to buy next...
I always loved the sound of your Collins, I always assumed it was a favorite of yours. If only I was a rich a woman...

I heard he was getting a dolphin bridge makala to replace it b/c the reviews were so good:)

Its good to have a tax refund and a new job at the right time.

I'm not going to drop the ball on this one. I missed out on your Aaron Kheim Kumalae copy. (because I reasoned I already have a Beansprout kumalae copy).

UAS is a crazy addictive high.

Hey Eugene:

I'm not in the market but got a kick out of your videos. Your style is fun and great to listen to, particularly your song selection. I hope I am lucky enough to hear a lot more of your stuff in the days ahead. Fine sounding ukulele too, by the way.
