*** SOLD *** Rare and truly one-of-a-kind Kepasa Little Mac Concert Uke - this was the first Little Mac ever built by Kepasa's Kevin Crossett. You can see here the stages of this Little Mac being built, and find sound samples near the end of the webpage:
http://kepasaukulele.com/building-pages/little-mac.htm (http://kepasaukulele.com/building-pages/little-mac.htm)

The Little Mac has a distinctive appearance with highly flamed maple top and back with mahogany sides. Tortoise back and top binding, and a tortoise bound oval soundhole. Rosewood fretboard and bridge. 12 frets to the body, 17 frets total, and pearl dots at 5, 7, 10, and 12th frets, with corresponding side microdots. Nice flamey maple peghead overlay. 4:1 geared Peghead tuners which look like violin tuners. . High gloss finish. Very lightweight instrument with excellent resonance and responsiveness. A very wonderful instrument.

The body volume of this ukulele nears that of a tenor uke for a more robust tone, while retaining the playability of a concert ukulele. An extraordinarily cool instrument with an extraordinary sound.

Hand built in the USA.

Comes with hardshell case.

$750 OR.
I might consider a trade for a high-end spruce top uke, especialy a LoPrinzi.
