For sale, my Morgan Monroe soprano banjo uke. (Morgan Monroe and Eddy Finn are the same company, and when they launched the Eddy Finn line these were rebadged as Eddy Finns. Exact same uke except for the name on the headstock). Nice player, with a clear brash banjo-y tone guaranteed to bug the neighbors and scare the cat. After having it for a while, I've come to the conclusion I'd be happier with a banjo uke with a larger diameter body.

No case, but I will double box it for shipping. $100 shipped, CONUS only.

Since it looks like Phil has snagged this, what makes you say a larger body would suit you better? Just curious as I've been looking around at the b-ukes available.

Thanks

Check out comparison with Lanikai, which has different strings and head. http://ukeeku.com/2011/04/19/eddy-finn-v-lanikai-6-banjo-ukulele-full-review/

Mostly just a comfort thing. The body is just physically too small for me (& I favor sopranos). And I keep whacking my finger on one of the brackets. I think an 8" rim would work better for me.

I did, and tried to reply twice. Something's wonky. Will try again.
