Oh I don't know....... I'd buy it in a heart beat at $2,800 if I thought it was the real deal. That's well below wholesale price if I'm not mistaken. I'll be interested to see where this goes....... Disturbing to say the least.

My bad...I saw the thread saying it's a clone and the ebay post says Luthier De...I'm sure people will miss it when searching for devine ukulele. Phil, you should have kept quiet and you might haven't gotten a steal on it!! LOL

Well shoots! And I just bought a new John Deere. My wife would've preferred the dining room set at 99 cents.

Solid wood and it seats 10. That makes for quick yard work.

He's also telepathic because he'll cancel your bid if you're not really interested.

Even before I looked at the seller details I though it must be a Chinese scammer, first immediately from the name, second because of zero details in the listing, which is mind boggling, unless of course the seller isn't fluent in English. There is (to me) obviously no real uke for sale, he just lifted a photo off the net. All the feedback is for jewelry and t-shirts that don't fit according to size.

Imagine shipping costs on the "BEST PRICE 1.5ct Heirloom Micropave Diamond Engagement", right. That isn't going anywhere either.

Yep. It's a picture of one of Eric's super concerts straight from his site.

I reported the item, it wouldn't hurt if a few others did the same.

Hey! Don't report the uke! I have a bid on it. Report the dining set-combination-lawn mower instead, I think that's a scam. ;)

The table that seat 10 could be a lawn mower. Fill it up with friends for supper, and tell them the grass needs to get mowed before anyone eats.. Grass cut in record time.. So, it's legit.

Good looking out guys.
Yep, just another not so creative scammer on Ebay. This isn't the first time and I'm sure it won't be the last. Pics were taken from my site. Never thought I would find myself in a bidding war with Chuck over a fake uke... I guess anything can happen.:D

Well thanks alot guys! Both Eric's uke AND the combination lawn mower/dining room set have been removed. Hopefully I still have time to get that six dollar 2 carat diamond ring for my wife.

Just remember to coat the inside of the ring with a thin layer of clear nail polish... LOL

I once found a fake shop on China's version of Ebay with numerous pics of ukes lifted directly from our site, including the pics of racks of ukes in our backroom.

I just erased everything I was going to post about China. I visited enough of it the last few years. Its off my list of things to do.
