NOW ON EBAY.....

I picked this uke up off Ebay for way more than I shoud have paid, $300.00, because I wanted a six string baritione. Even though, I sold a six string tenor a while back because I didn't like the six strings.... go figure UAS. I posted it on the uke talk forum here on UU to see if anyone recoginized it and it is a rebranded "Nice" uke made in the Philippines. There was a "N" stenciled on the headstock and the shape of the headstock gave it away. It was advertised as a solid Koa uke but it is really acacia.

It has a slight seperation on the lower bout where your right arm lays across the body. (See photo) I glued it but couldn't get the top as sealed tight as I would like but its solid. I then took off the tuners, glued a Goncalo Alves pickguard on, and stripped the whole uke down to the original wood. I then stained it green, ebony and red mahogany. I wanted it to look like you left it outside in the jungle and something started growing on it. I glued a fossiled shark's tooth to the headstock and my Pirates of the Caribbean coin on the back of the headstock to give it a little pirate flavor. I then used a hand rubbed poly finish on the whole instrument. The result is a backwater look baritone uke. It has some glue marks and sanding marks but that's okay for the look I wanted.

It sounds good. I just put a new set of Aquillas on it. I'm selling it because I just don't like the six strings. I just picked up AncientMatingCalls Kala here yesterday and d-mace's baritone tonight so this one will just sit in its case.

Just dropped it on Ebay, here's the link:

More photos..... The photos without the flash reflect the true color of this uke. The green tint is really the green tint of the uke and not the camera.
