I bought this uke which came with some lithographs by Wyland. Then the person tells me he has 4 others very similar. No research I've done comes up with who made 'em. Some hints and good advice but, IDK. I've got him down to 300 for all four but don't know if it's worth the risk! They would all need to be fixed in some way. What would you do?

If they are from different makers, like a Tangi Manini, and you like sopraninos go for it.

But if they are all about the same as the one you own, maybe pass.

Are you planning to flip them?

They are all by the same maker. Some have different wood combos. And yes prooftheory I'm a gona flip 3 of 'em.

I say pass. The effort to get them into shape will probably be worth more than you will make off of them.

I would maybe raise the action a bit with another bridge piece to eliminate the fret buzz-

is the fretboard and neck bent?
or maybe someone previous lowered the action too much-

can't tell you the maker anymore than the decal on the peg box.

sounds good otherwise. great ringing tone!
