Hi. My auction is ending today. I can't believe I didn't put "tenor" in the title, it's killing me.

A few goof ups in the listing and only one photo isn't a path to ebay (or other used marketplace) success in my opinion. Hope it works out for you.

These instruments are really something. Cantilevered fretboard. Great craftmanship. I am the fortunate owner of a solid sycamore. It's the only tenor in my collection that I'll play.

If the price stays around where it is right now, it's an amazing deal. I figure it'll go up...

I hope you get the amount that you deserve for this uke. Lesson learned that pictures and how you market even on ebay is very important

I am. I actually bought one of Rick's first ukes and it had problems. I sent it back to have it fixed and he just sent me this brand new one. I'll be sad to see it go, but I have don't have a choice.

It is a reasonable price for a standard, though, no soundport, I take it?

the auction's end price reminds me of a highway robbery

A few days ago, I wrote the seller to tell him that he was selling a mandolin, not a ukulele. No response.

I think $677 is a good deal for that uke, but not really close to highway robbery. I sold a walnut Compass Rose tenor with passive pickup in 2008 for $600 on one of the uke forums. It was exactly like the OP's uke, except it had a pickup. I priced it to sell, but certainly didn't feel like I gave it away.

Yeah, I paid $620 new.
