Lots of people sometimes repeat drivel and nonsense that they've read online. It's all a bunch of hogwash. I have two of them and a lot of other pricier ukes and the Maui Musics are the real deal. The internet is good for a lot of things; much research can be conducted, but there's a downside: misinformation...

Haha. You don't, but I'm speaking from experience, in that, I have two new ones and they're exquisite. All Maui Music ukuleles have been made by Peter Lieberman. Pre-fire, post-fire, there's no difference, except that he gained experience with passing years. Post-fire Mauis were made by a builder who had more experience under his belt. That's how I look at it. Everyone else can form their own opinion, which is fine by me. Just seems illogical to assume, based on nothing more than what one has read online, that they aren't as good as they used to be. I don't know, maybe I'm wrong, someone please help me out here if that's the case.

Haha. There was no offense taken, just trying to clarify the point a little. Congrats on the Moore Bettah, by the way >Drooooool

Mine is the twin of the one that sold on FMM... it's a truly wonderful uke.

Where did you hear that the post fire ukes aren't good? That's absolute nonsense! I played several new ukes at Gryphon last year, and they were all wonderful. Peter didn't lose his ability to make ukes in the fire! What is true is there seem to be fewer fancy ukes coming out of the shop and many more simply appointed ones. It hardly matters, as they all sound great.

Whew! That was a rare one at a reasonable price

So you selling yours now?

I'm confused with all those urban myths since I've never played one...Soupking, your logic makes sense to me. Sounds like someone is happy because it didn't last very long.

Seriously???? That's a steal!!! Good thing I didn't see it before it sold, because I would have two now.

Maui Music ukes are fantastic regardless of when they were built. I bought my 6-string directly from Peter Lieberman at a uke fest a few years ago and it's a keeper.

I love my pre-fire Maui Music tenor 1998..i spoke with Peter many times too.he does come on the UU sometimes

I tried to get that one on jumping flea but was too late..
my tenor has very mellow lows and crystal clear highs..the top has a slight dish but I can live with it,,

Peter is urcuzzn on the UU..he is very good friends with Eric Devine..he is very modest..does not like to talk about his work and himself too much..great guy!

I have met Peter in person. He laughs about the pre-fire hype. He told me that pre-fire, he worked with a team of production people and he spent time quality checking and voicing each uke. But post fire, he builds everything himself and he is confident that the quality is as good if not better than ever. I had a chance to play a few and thought that they were great.

Thanks for the update Steve. It is nice to get information right from the horses mouth. BTW that was a beautiful tenor. Someone is going to be a happy camper.

Great to hear!! I'm gonna wait until Rick Turner starts building 100% of uke himself.

Hey Daniel..Rick said if he could one day he will just build instruments by himself..that might be awhile though..

Peter builds flamenco guitars when he in Florida and the ukes when he come back to Maui..they do sound pretty good..I played a bunch of them in Palo Alto..but never saw a bling out one in person..

the uke on jumping flee market place was an unreal price ..I tried too late..they might be going for double that price now..wow

WOW...Sweet score Matt!!

I love contrasting bindings on fretboards, which is a requirement now for any custom ukes.
