Black Bear Tenor #314. It is a daisy of a uke. Sitka spruce top with lovely bear claw, Beautiful Koa Back & Sides, not flamey but elegantly colored. Triple purlfing, Rosewood binding top & back and heel cap; Rosette inlay, Fossilized bridge, pins & nut, Rosewood (ebony?) radius fingerboard & headplate. Abalone bear logo, koa button 5-star tuners. Classic Heilman all the way. No issues, though some strum marks & such. Tone is like a bell. I played this uke daily for years but have slowly shifted to sopranos. It doesn't get played enough now. I'm looking for $1500 + shipping/insurance. Paypal preferred. Send a PM.
