It's time to make some space now that I'm building my own, so I'll be posting a few nice instruments. This is a Style 2 tenor in excellent condition. The particulars of the model can be seen here:

The only flaw is slight strum marks that can't be seen in the photos. Otherwise, a "no issues" instrument that is strung with Worth browns that give it a very clear sound.

Price reduction: $425 plus shipping and insurance

Is that a Tru-Oil finish?

I've heard that Mike uses a polyurethane but can't vouch for it. The finish is a nice, even satin, though.

This will be a great uke. An amazing deal for what I imagine to be an amazing instrument (should it be anything at all like the one I have). If it was a concert or soprano, i'd snatch it up in a moment.

I've seen a few "looking to buy a better second uke" threads. The ops of those threads should be looking here rather than buying a new factory-made instrument.

good luck with the sale.

Thanks, Jamie. Yes, this is a pretty good deal if it's what a buyer wants. I just want to get a few sold on the quick.

I have this exact model. I have a more expensive tenor, which I also love, but this is a GREAT uke at a good price. I'd buy this if I didn't already have one..Mike told me it was a wipe on poly, so it would be easy to touch up if needed. the cedar is soft so it scratches/ dings easy. but what tone! and a great neck.

That's a lovely price on an amazing sounding instrument. The one you are selling, I'm sure, has lovely sound and intonation, as does all that Michael makes. He strives for perfection, with all natural woods (no plastic inlays, etc.). One look at the instrument, and it's obvious he cares. This same, simply divine model from most other custom luthiers with fancy websites and pull-down menus would cost $1100.

Big fan of Mike Pereira. And an owner.

I slapped a tape on mine just now-- 1 3/8 inch nut.

Or to be exact, 1.404" on this particular one.

Wow - what a deal!

Note to Bob:

I've responded to all of your emails but it seems that mine aren't getting through. Maybe I'm going to your spam file??

The nut width is 1.4"

I've also just sent you a PM.

Best regards, and I hope that we can connect in spite of the troublesome technology. :)

Sold. Thanks to the new owner and to all of who who chimed in with your points of view about Mike's fine instruments.

Thanks, saltytri.
And for all those commenting on the uke.
It'll have a good home.

sweet! I guess there wasn't enough hype for a mp uke but it should have gone quicker for the price.

yea, his "base" models are kind of plain looking, but they are very well built and sound incredible. and that's the bottom line for any instrument.

Also,
I believe he is no longer making his base model (at least the pricing for it is no longer on his website). You would now have to pay over a grand for a MP tenor, which it is no doubt worth. This deal is especially good in that context!!!
