Pretty good questions. Too bad he wont take the air cash or skinless balloon.

I started to read to to my wife and when I got to the questions I couldn't even continue because we were laughing so hard.

Awesome. You have to question the wisdom of someone unwilling to take air cash.

It's already up to $.79 US, with 9 days to go, so it's probably going to be out of my reach price wise. :(

Doesn't mention if it is solid air, or laminate....

Snipers with air rifles...

What would be the safest way to ship it?

Look closer at the picture.

Having a UK model would be really nice for my collection.

Air mail of course

If it has a pick-up I suggest a Fender Bassman. Those vintage 4X10 Jensens push a lot of air.

I think those are Worth strings and obviously not the browns. Must be clear.

Maybe I should ask what is the serial number of this uke.

Well to the US it would have to go air mail, as the humidity on the boat could be hard on the finish. If I were shipping something like that, I'd use those cool green air packs all around it to protect it and save weight..

"Saw This Rare Ukulele On Ebay"...........

I guess that would make it a "Rair" ukulele. :D

Travel uke would be a good use for it, especially for international travel. It would fit in the overhead bin and you could probably sneak it through customs.

I want to know if it comes with CITES documents from the country of origin

I'm probably going to have to bid on this, it's just too cool. Shipping is kind of high though. If I get it I'll have to have someone else play it for the sound sample video, my air uke is on the same skill level as my standard uke... :(

It sure is a beauty, i am actually enrolling at my local college this week to begin a course on air Ukulele luthiering, i shall be building customs hopefully very soon, i am also hoping to import some of the finest Hawaiian air as i believe this makes the best air ukulele and has a very distinct finish :)

By the way my wife was crying with laughter reading the ebay item and the questions are just so funny, i take my hat off to the person who put this up, has really made my day :) and the fact it has had 2 bids lol

Looks like the item got pulled. Been watching it for a few days and it eas still there this morning, but now the listing is gone. It was up to like 5bids and was hilarious. Apparently Evil Bay doesn't have the same sense of humor.

I had one that was damaged on a flight. It doesn't do well when traveling by air.

It's the seller of the ebay Air Ukelele here - just to let you all know that sadly yesterday ebay decided to remove my listing because "the buyer would not be able to prove receipt of the item" - I am thinking that ebay need to get a sense of humour! Thanks to everyone who either posted on the ebay listing or here, on this forum, I've had lots of fun reading all your amusing comments and joining in with the fun. It was a good laugh while it lasted ! :D

Such a shame, ebay sucks, anyway thank you for bringing laughter and smiles in to my house, my wife was crying with laughter reading your questions and answers, as was i, the world needs more people like you, shame you dont have some disposable income and open up a ebay store selling air instruments ha ha ha i think we should start a fund raiser so you can do more listings, maybe we could have a air night of the proms :) anyway thanks for being a top sport and having a rea sense of humour :)
