It was recently refinished in tung-oil and reconditioned. It looks like a new ukulele and plays very well. Original tuners. Original logo almost 100%. Asking $200. No case. I have a PDF file with before and after pictures and a fair amount of text explaining how the cracks were fixed and how the finish was applied.

Jim, what kind of wood is that? I cannot tell much from the pictures of the action - is it low?

The wood is mahogany (quartersawn). The action is very good. I will measure it tomorrow. The PDF file may help. I'll need an email address to send it. turner@umich.edu

They used Cuban Mahogany on the more expensive models. It has a lot of 'curl' in it-just gorgeous

Here are some pictures and text. It's pretty cheesy but the pictures are good.
