GOT THIS baritone OFF EBAY and it doesn't look like I'll ever get around to fixing it. It has:
1. 11" crack on lower bout
2. 1/2 " crack around sound hole
3. high action/forward bent neck. 5mm at 12th, when straightedge is laid down the neck about 1mm gap at worst spot.

see photobucket for more pictures.

sorry, I forgot UU in pict will take another one asap.

I left one string on so I could measure action, and this solid mahogany uke has a really nice loud tone.
I went on a baritone binge and need to lighten the load.
There is buckle rash on back and what looks to be a small nail on top. It has a really pretty fret board grain with some wear on first few frets and some fretwear, but there's still a lot left. these are brass frets.

$50 shipped

So that's what a red-headed step child looks like. :)

since I have had no offers on this I'll just keep it, so mods you can lock this thread.

I Just put some worth bari strings on and tuned it dGBE. if I use a capo it brings the high action down and sounds it really good. if I capo at the 5th I've got a really nice sounding uke in regular reentrant tuning, so I'm kind of glad it didn't sell.

This is just sitting around and it needs to go. This would make a good project for someone wanting to practice gluing cracks or straightening a neck. or use it for parts. nice vintage tuners, and a back with no cracks.
$50 obo shipped! don't hesitate with your low offers, I am getting rid the projects I'll never get roundto.
