I don't see why not... hawaii 50 probably means it will be snatched up by a buyer, not by a mod hahah xD
I'm pretty sure there are other builders who have posted their own works on UU for sale... like Black Bear and Gary Gill, for example

By the rules this ad should not be allowed in the market place. As stated, the market place is for member to member sales. A builder reseller (selling for profit), such as Black Bear who is a well established builder/retailer should not be listing their inventory here yet they do and, to date, I haven't seen anyone pull their ads. Hopefully a moderator will explain this.

I'll try to interpret the rules. Durect sales from members, including builders are ok however you can't post links for sales ie eBay or your website. If you are a reseller, you gotta go to the other forum.

Ads by members, whether they are the builder or just an owner, are totally fine.

What is not allowed are advertisements by dealers, middlemen if you would. It's clearly stated in the rule 8.

A builder is not a dealer.




There are three Marketplace rules:


Please do not post links or otherwise direct people to your eBay auction. This subsection is intended for member-to-member transactions only, sans middle man. If you would like to announce your eBay auction, please do so in the Links and Videos subsection.
Dealers may not post in the Marketplace. If you wish to start a thread about your business, you may do so in the Links and Videos subsection.
Certain items are unsuitable for trade through UU. The following are prohibited and may not be mentioned, even in hints or code, in the context of trading on this forum:
> weapons (including, but not only, firearms, knives, bows/crossbows, stun guns and martial arts weapons)
> drugs or medicines
> any item the trading/selling of which is subject to legal regulation or control, including items such as tortoiseshell, wood, and other things covered by the CITES convention.

Now, back to the sale of this fine instrument. I own one of Jason's tenors. It's an awesome, high-quality, ukulele. The sound is loud and clear and with wonderful unique tone. His fit and finish are excellent.

Thanks to all who have tried to explain the rules. It seemed like I wasn't breaking any rules, but I wanted to make sure I was operating within the parameters of acceptable behavior on this forum.

...and thanks again for the compliments regarding my uke. I used this same English walnut on a guitar some years ago. It's really pretty stuff. Unfortunately, that was the last of the billet.

I don't have a recording yet. I'll try to do one in the next couple of days. In the meantime, check out some recording of my past ukuleles. This one sounds very similar.

BTW, I have a 48 approval period on ukes that I've built on spec.

Thanks!

Here's an impromptu recording of this uke. The music is comprised of arpeggiated chords and some improvised lines. I titled the piece "Sanctuary" after the uke's name. Hope you enjoy!

Thanks

Personally, I have no problem with builders like Jason posting here. I love to see these kind of instruments, and if not for this marketplace forum, I might not ever notice them. Duane has been posting his Black Bears here for ages, and I've yet to hear of anyone taking issue with this. These aren't large businesses trying to pump sales of imports, or something like that. These are boutique builders who are offering to share their art with this community. If this is against the rules, then the rules should be modified, in my opinion. If UU can help these smaller shops establish themselves and get a bit of a boost, I think that's great. If the marketplace forum ever became inundated with such ads, then maybe separating the forum into "new," and "used," might be warranted, but these ads are such a small percentage I just don't see a problem.

Good luck, Jason. That's a beautiful instrument for sure. Definitely shows off some serious talent on your part.

Edit: I made the mistake of replying before reading the entire thread. It looks like the question has been thoroughly answered already, but I've left my post just express my opinion. This is great stuff, and I'd hate to see it blocked.

Thanks again to everyone. It's really great to read favorable comments.
