SOLD: String Tenor by Peter Howlett, High G - Worth Browns (actually 6 brown + 2 clear, they sent me an odd set), Curly Koa body, sides, back. Slotted head, Rosewood fingerboard & bridge. Double upper bout sound holes, delicate herring-bone rosettes. A split on the top seam in the lower bout has a visible repair. Similarly there is a crack on the back (see photos). Both of these occurred before I owned the instrument and have been stable since I have, 2+ years. Rich booming tone, sounds like an orchestra. It comes with chip-board case. I am in therapy for and reversing my UAS, so putting up this and other ukes I do not play enough. Asking just SOLD shipped CONUS. paypal preferred.

Bump. I feel off balance being unable to accurately assign value to this instrument. I sounds really, really good, Mr. Howlett being no slouch in his builds. I'm just not playing this treasure, and by God, some one ought to. Make me an offer.

Link to more photos, I seem to have originally posted the link to one photo rather than the album. Silly me.
