For your consideration, a custom ukulele I commissioned from John Ramsey of Palm Tree Ukuleles in Colorado. Note that it is a pineapple concert size in beautifully figured mango wood, with a 16" scale tenor neck! Condition: immaculate; no dings/dents/scratches. The absolute finishing touch is the gorgeous, pineapple-shaped hard shell case! Date of completion: March, 2012. Currently strung with Living Water. Reason for selling: am downsizing to soprano and will likely get another Palm Tree in soprano! Originally paid $1100. Will sell for $850.00 via Paypal, shipping costs split with buyer (US only).

Hello! This thread is a replication of a previous one with an identical title. That one has the photos. I was trying to load additional photos and goofed by starting another one! My apologies.

Perhaps we can start a palm tree thread. I bought one too. You can see it on the palm tree site (#104). Great Uke. I think it is heirloom quality. I hear they are making eight new ones which will be available around sep /August timeframe
