$450.
Honduras Mahogany Soprano ukulele, nice ribbon grain. I build these lovely, light, with plenty of tone & volume. All hide-glue construction. A "primitive" uke with the flush fretboard, easy playing action. Ebony violin pegs are fitted and hold well, but if you are put off by the violin pegs, I'll sub Grover Deluxe Sta-tites for $40 extra.
Aquila Nyl-gut strings are right for this uke. No case included, I will supply one if you wish, extra.
$450. + shipping, lower 48 only

Thank you. With all humility, it plays and sounds better than it looks.

I think it looks great too! It is the lightest uke I have ever played, and has spot on intonation.
Thanks Dave!
