View Full Version : Maccaferri Ukette

I recently lost out on a fairly awesome local deal because I didn't have ready cash; I didn't have ready cash because I've been "borrowing" from my uke fund for some smaller purchases. Poor management, ladies and gentlemen.

So, up for your consideration is a funky little sopranino. Here she is:

For those of you who don't know the heritage, Ukester Brown has an excellent bio/history: http://www.ukesterbrown.com/maccaferri-and-his-islanders.html

This particular Ukette is in great condition, save a few cosmetic issues. There are some nicks on the side of the headstock, and a couple of the fret markers are faded.

It's strung with Southcoast XLUs, which are designed to be an octave above a baritone. Given the small scale, I can get these as low as E before they start to go floppy, and they're happy all the way up to G. I've also got the original multi-colored strings which have plenty of life in them.

Finally, for you collector-types, I have the original box as well.

$75 USD gets it shipped to your door anywhere CONUS. International buyers can get in touch to work out any further details.

More pics to follow. Cheers.

For the VRC: yes, I know the date is off by a couple of days, but at least I didn't post from the future!
