Bought this on ebay as a second for $9.99 + shipping , it was listed as unplayable as it had high action. Ha ha, most of them come from the factory with high action! I filed the nut slots and replaced the plastic saddle with sythetic bone . It now plays easy peasy with nice low action and a surprisingly good tone.
I just bought this to practice my set up skills, and I need another uke like a ... SO, I'm offering it for sale and the proceeds will go to

maybe if ukisociety gets enough donations he won't sell his beansprout!
These go for about $60 online new, this is better than new as it has been "set up" and has an upgraded saddle. In the interest of full disclosure, the top has a slight dip between the sound hole and bridge, just noticed it when I was photographing it. hardly noticeable. and the finish is a little wonky on the back, kind of glossy spots there it might have rubbed the cardboard during shipping, and where it was sanded around the binding.
so, $50 , and I'll pick up the shipping. And I'll throw in the awesome pumpkin finger puppet! prefer paypal [gift] . sorry , no case.
