Selling a Martin 5K vintage Ukulele 1927. Excellent condition, with original hard case. Nice and rare ukulele. Was bought in 2011. It grieves me to sell it but circumstances. Asking $6000 or Best offer. I can ship internationally. Accepting a paypal and a wire transfer. Thanks and good luck:)

sure looks like a 5K
how about you send him a check for 10k, and he sends the uke and 4k back.

this pic on fleamarket looks suspiciously like one for auction on Ebay yesterday listed from Santa monica reserve more than $11000 ,I did bid but apparently did not reach reserve the story was old uncle's untouched inherited player.When I checked seller's feedback it said they had no items for sale.I am glad that I missed out.Beware!I will add link,later.

Yeah, this seemed pretty fishy from the start. Guy with 2 posts shows up with a 5K for 6K no pics and a foreign address. Phishing? You bet.

Hello Markis. That's a nice ukulele. I have longed for one for some time.

Would you be so kind as to post a couple photos of the back and sides. And please put the date and your UU name on a piece of paper in one picture.

Thanks. Looking forward to the pictures, it's on my radar.

Hi Markis, it would really help if you do what coolkayaker1 said - provide everyone with a picture of your Martin with a handwritten note within the picture that has your UU name and the most recent date on it. It will eliminate possible fraud accusations and aid your sale. Shouldn't be too hard if you have your uke with you.

Post the pictures here. Quit stalling

Also, this moldy uke has been for sale on ebay before back in February, and discussed here.

This time however, he has it in Australian currency. Kind of suspicious since he claims he's from Santa Monica Ca
