I'm re-homing my Loprinzi cherry concert uke because I play our other concerts more.
This one helped me expand from playing only sopranos to concerts because the body is a little smaller than other concerts (the body, not the scale).

It appears new, except for:
1. a ding in the back at the edge of the upper bout (see photo)
2. a teensy mark on the top edge of the headstock you wouldn't see unless I told you (like now)
3. a small black line on the back that looks like a hair dropped on it. It's not a crack or a scratch; it might be a sharpie mark, but I didn't make it (see photo).

SPECIFICATIONS
Solid cherry top, sides & back (nicely figured)
Rosewood fingerboard
Bone nut and bridge
19 frets
MOP position markers
Satin natural finish
Scale: 15-1/8"
Headstock to bottom: 23-5/8"
Body length alone: 10"
Southcoast medium strings
Action: comfortably low
Intonation: accurate

$400 plus shipping. Includes a new, super-quality gig bag. Paypal, please.

My mouth started watering when I saw you mention the possible re-homing of this uke in the WTB thread, Ginny.

It's sure to make someone happy this holiday season. And though I didn't keep my Loprinzi, I still think they're wonderfully under-rated ukes. Probably the fastest neck on the planet, too.

Good luck with the sale.

This LoPrinzi concert really sounds fantastic. Pretty cherry wood too.

I own one of these in koa. Beautifully constructed with low easy action that doesn't buzz. Sounds and plays as well as anything from Hawaii for a third the price. For those thinking of stepping up from a beginner's instrument...

That black streak on the back is probably just normal cherry coloring, the wood figure is a nice touch.

No you can't have mine.

Many listeners to the sound sample and a few inquiries, but still available.
