issues:

1. tight slot in 'A' string tuner. difficult to turn. I think this is because of wear internally. when I bought the instrument a few months back, it was advertised as coming with the original green bakelite tuners as a big selling point - which it was to me! But when I got it out of it's box, they literally just dropped out of their slots. Very angry and disappointed. I replaced them with these black friction tuners and the A tuner has been tight ever since. Still functional and working, but there it is

2. some slight wear to the original bridge. strings neatly held in place with small black beads. work well and no probs. could be easily fixed but I have not the knowledge or skill do do the fill myself


Aside from these points the uke looks great and sounds lovely. It is very smooth to play and has that old vintage aesthetic and sound. Body in immaculate order.

Paid $350 without a case and not including shipping.
I am asking $275 and including a hardshell case.
I am also asking an extra for $50 to contribute towards postage (which will likely cost around $100).

Paypal please. Please PM with any further questions. Thanks everyone.
