Selling my Mya-Moe #507 Master Grade Chocolate Heart Mango Soprano Classic! He looks like Timon@Disney! ;) I sell it because I'm raising money for my upcoming Mya-Moe Tenor Classic.

Detailed spec: https://www.myamoeukuleles.com/uketracker.php?trackingNumber=507

Built in Sep 2011. A beautiful Master Grade Chocolate Heart Mango bookmatch which makes me think of Timon from Disney. See the closeups of the fur-like wood grains, very attractive. Being played at home only. The soprano scale and the mango body give this little uke a sweeeeet mellooooow tone! Overall it is in a good condition. Very clean, no dint no scratch. Fretboard may need a lemon oil restoration. This uke has a "dishing" issue. Please watch Gordon's explanation on dishing: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5fxmW-rMz-k

As shown in the last few photos in my album, the corner of the bridge is up a bit due to a slight top movement. According to Gordon, MM builds "close to the edge" (as light and responsive as possible) and therefore a slight top movement is a good sign that the uke is voiced correctly. Recently, I emailed Gordon regarding this issue and he said that the bridge had no danger of popping off -- out of 1400 ukes they have never had that happen. Of course they can bring it back and fix the gap if you want.

You may also notice that the handle of the hard case needs a repair.

Price: US$430 shipped
