Really have tried hard to love resonators and learn how to play them but I just can't quite get a handle on them and feel comfortable with them, hence the sale of this instrument. Anyway, here's pics of the Big Rusty:

Bump. Reasonable offers considered.

Is that $995 US or $995 Aus? With the current exchange rate $900 US is $995 Aus and that would make a phenomenal deal for someone that wants a hand made quality resonator ukulele.
Consider that a Mya-Moe reso has a 1 year waiting list and a tenor starts at around $1700 US = $1850 Aus

Price is in USD, John.

Now reduced to $900.

Can't really go any lower than that sorry folks. I'll give it a week then withdraw from sale. As an aside, Russ Morin's ukes have a warmer, rounder tone than the MM resos, in my opinion anyway. He is a little known builder, but an awesome one who deserves to be better acknowledged. If it comes to that, I will not be unhappy keeping it, just would prefer a short scale. I will endeavour to do a sound/video demo today.
