    FS/FT: NEW Deering Goodtime Banjo Ukulele

    $325 I just won this at a banjo contest. I'm not much of a uke player these days. I would trade this for a mountain banjo or a gourd banjo. This item is brand new, and it even includes the warranty card. This does NOT come with a gig bag. It will be packaged very well. Get it here a little...

    Victoria Concert-sized Guitar 1915

    $500 + shipping I would consider trading this for a quality vintage banjo (5-string or tenor) or a Deering Goodtime banjo with a resonator and dark coloring (not the blonde on blonde one). I got this from Vintage Blues Guitars, and I discovered the whole vintage instrument deal really isn't...

    FS: Taylor 114 Grand Auditorium Guitar

    $550 CONUS with shipping included. (If shipping to you is cheaper than expected, I'll give you the difference on PayPal) I know this isn't a uke, but I figured you guys who like small-bodied guitars might be interested. I'm trying to focus on banjos right now. These go for like $650 new...

    WTB: A Tiple!

    I've had a couple tiples over the past few years, and I've been missing that strange instrument. I'm looking for something like a Regal, Gretsch, or Harmony. Not a Martin or anything very expensive like that. I'd also consider an old Harmony / Regal taropatch.

    FS: Pono Parlor Guitar

    Lately I've been forsaking my ukulele and guitars, and focusing much more on my banjo playing. So I'm downsizing. This is a great little guitar by the folks at Pono. Playability and sound you expect from their ukuleles, but in a small-bodied guitar. It reminds me a lot of the old Gibson...

    5-string Uke (like a banjo)

    While playing around with clawhammer on my uke, I noticed that the lack of a lower string made it a bit harder to find the notes I'm used to playing on my banjo. So I thought: "Plenty of people play clawhammer on the uke. Has anyone ventured to make a uke with 5 separate strings like a banjo?"...

    Bernunzio Whyte Laydie 5-String Banjo

    $1100 shipped CONUS. I very recently purchased this banjo from a Banjo Hangout member. I've made a few purchases too many over the last few months, and I honestly got a little ahead of myself. So I'm forced to sell a few banjos. That said, this is a great little banjo. I'm a little neurotic...

    1895 Lyon & Healy 5-string Banjo

    Not an ukulele, but just as fun. This is a short scale, 10" rim 5-string from Lyon & Healy. This would be an easy step up from a baritone ukulele, as it has a somewhat similar scale. I purchased this from Antebellum instruments a few months ago, but it just hasn't got much playing time. The...

    FS / FT: Recording King RP-06 Parlor Guitar

    I know this isn't a uke, but I figured it'd be fine to sell it here anyway considering it's small :P It's a nice guitar with a solid top in like new condition. I bought it a month ago or so and I need to downsize as my purchases have gotten somewhat out of hand lately. "_____ Acquisition...

    Ohana Tiple

    http://s792.photobucket.com/albums/yy208/zackyzac987/Ohana%20Tiple/ $330 with shipping. I bought this from Uke Republic earlier this year. I got it for 400.00 and I've hardly played it. It just needs a fretboard oiling and possibly some new strings. I would do it, but as you can see there are...

    skiffle tuning/string type/vintage guitar advice?

    I think it might be a tenor guitar. They were normally tuned CGDA.

    F/S: '30s Bruno "The Vernon" Tiple

    College textbooks are very expensive, and my family's facing somewhat hard times right now... Nothing too major, but I still want to help out. To top it off, I got into playing 5-string banjo a few months ago and I really love it. I have a vintage one now and I hope to get a luthier-built one...

    F/S: '30s Stromberg-Voisinet Banjo Ukulele<SOLD>

    I've just purchased a nice 5-string banjo, so I thought it would be a bit superfluous to have two banjo-ukes and a 5-string. I like this banjo-uke a whole lot, but I need the money. Especially with Christmas coming up. $170 plus however much it costs to ship your way. Preferably mainland USA...

    My first eight string uke

    I love the aesthetics of it! It's certainly a beauty. If you ever make another one, I'd love to see a headstock like this:

    New (old) Tiple day!

    Thanks to the awesome Dirk from southcoastukes, I now have my hands on a Bruno "The Vernon" Tiple! I tuned it up and it sounds great. I can't wait to write some folk-punk songs on it.

    WTB: Tiple (still....)

    (I made this topic a while ago and got nothing. I'm just testing the field again I suppose :P) I'm looking for a 10 string Martin style Tiple. The Columbian 12 strings are neat but I'm not interested. However, I can't actually afford a Martin tiple. Instead, I'm looking for either: -A vintage...

    Cliff Edwards / Ukulele Ike

    What size uke did Ukelele Ike use, and what tuning did he have it in? I've always loved the deeper sound his uke has.
