I have recently acquired MP #118, and it is very nicely built . mine has a cedar top, has plenty of volume and a nice clear tone. Based on the instrument I have, I would highly recommend this builder.I'd probably snap this up but I'm more of a tenor/bari fan and I already have a nice concert.

Aloha Ed,

deep rich tone, clean crisp individual note separation, lots of substain, comfort and playability...it's a great deal.

Lot's of ukes come up for sale but this one really catches my eye in a big way . I know it doesnt help you to rehome that little beauty just for me to remark on it being a nice one . But I too have to many . According to your sound samples I've got one that sounds identical to that one . I love the warm calm tone of that uke .

Best of the best in rehomeing just a great uke . She's a beauty . I'd have it in a minute if weren't that I already am above and beyond my fair share . Couple that with beong broke and I'll have to watch someone esle enjoy it .
