This is my friend Larry's concert size Beltona reso uke. It was purchased about 10 years ago and barely played. I just made a new bridge for it and set it up. It's good to go! These are $1100-1300 new, this one is $900 including shipping in the US. More for international. Includes cloth covered foam case. Email info@thebeansprout.com

If it was a tenor size I would be interested. I do have a few questions about Beltona though. They have been making resos for a long time but I know they have made some changes through the years.
Is this a metal uke or one of their glass and carbon fiber composite construction machines? What kind of cones do they use?
Maybe cranking out a few notes on it might help sell it.

John,
Beltona stopped making the metal ukes in 2002, and moved across to glassfibre for the body.
I believe Steve spins his own cones.
There is also a recent modification that the strings terminate at a rosewood tie block on the top of the coverplate.

Just love mine, the one in the photo above, Songster Tenor.
Beltona is now based in the UK, having moved back to the UK from New Zealand.

I'll leave cranking out a few notes to Aaron, he will be able to do it justice!
