I am selling this, that isn't particularly a uke, but a close cousin (or a brother?). It's a starter model with a smaller body (Paulistinha). It is slightly smaller than a concert uke.

It was made in 2008, the neck, unlike a uke, is very thin - mandolin-y, perhaps.

There is some wear in the top because it is played with a pick and apparently the previous owner played it vigorously, but it doesn't affect the sound. There is a pickup jack and hole drilled, but there's no pickup.

This instrument is fitted with steel strings and tuned DGBD but you can easily tune it to DGBE, one octave up the baritone uke. Good strings are cheap and easily available in the USA.

Neck: Cedar
Fretboard: Pau Ferro
Sides and back: Imbuia (Brazilian Walnut)
Top: Solid Spruce

Total Lenght: 585mm (~23 inches)
Scale Lenght: 340mm (~13,4 inches)
Nut Width: 30mm (~1,18 inches)

I'm asking US$120,00 + actual shipping and insurance (that'll be between 30 and 40 dollars for the US, but I'm not sure of it). I'm also trying to sell locally, but I'd find it super cool to sell it to a fellow UUer.

Soon I'll post pictures with my username.
