WOW! What a beauty, I'd buy that in a heartbeat if my budget wasn't so limited.

Beautiful Style 1, looks a lot like one that was on ebay about a month ago. Just wondering, in image 4 there appears to be a crack or scratch on the upper bout, or is it just a light reflection? Also, What is the overall condition of the case, can you provide a few more picts? You can PM me, if you'd like.
Thanks much,

Hi James: I bought this one a couple years ago off ebay. There is a scratch on the upper bout. It's not a crack happily! There are a few other minor dings that you can see in the pics too. But all around its in excellent shape and plays great. The case is in great condition - the handle and the two latches work. Here's some more pics of the case and the uke. Just holler if you are interested! Todd
