I forgot to put Mya Moe in the title so am reposting.

I'm sure you all know how torn it can be to finally decide to sell a uke that is very, very special. I had her for sale for about 1/2 hour on the 16th of July then closed the thread after re-considering. I just don't play it enough to justify having it sit around; so have decided for sure to sell.

I am the second owner. The first sold it because a long awaited build number came up. I'm sure he is regretting selling it as much as I will be. I originally bought the MM to see if I liked a radiused neck. I did and went with one on a build from Griffin Ukuleles. I play my Griffins more than the MM and it deserves to be played.

The specs on the uke is: http://www.myamoeukuleles.com/uketra...1&submit=Track

Gordon wrote me stating "That is a very special wood--it was sunk in a pond for many years, which does great things for it's acoustics & aesthetics. *There was only one board of it, so we were able to make just a few instruments. *They are prized beyond anything else that we have made. *You can see all 13 of them if you go to our gallery and search on Master Grade Blue Pond Myrtle."

It is a beautiful, always cased. There are a few really faint nail marks that can only be seen in a very, very bright light at a certain angle. Was $2200.oo new. I'm asking 1750. insured and shipped in lower 48 states.

This is a tough thing to do but I know it needs to get where it will be played and enjoyed for generations to come. This is a very special instrument where only 13 were made and that is it.

The Uke date required photo says 7/16. If I need to post one for today I can do that. It hasn't been out of the case since then. Comes with strap and extra set of strings.

If you want additional info or photos, pm's are welcomed. This is a tough decision for sure.

Hi Patrick - you might want to post this on Flea Market Music Marketplace too. High end ukes seem to sell a bit better there. FMM is at https://www.fleamarketmusic.com/marketplace/default.asp Good luck with the sale!
