No Longer for sale..One uke in (or on its way) and one out. For sale a 2021 Dave Talsma Ditson style Soprano. Engelmann Spruce Top, super pretty and Walnut back and sides. The binding and the headstock are maple. Super nice rosette. 12% radius fretboard. Gotoh UPS tuners. Glass finish with a translucent plastic pickguard for hard strummers. Mint condition. This uke plays as easily/well as any I personally have played. It is not a super loud uke, so if you are looking for a screamer, this is not it. Plays super well with perfect intonation all the way up the neck.

These do not come up often for sale used.

XXXX NO LONGER FOR SALE..
Shipped with a hardcase within the COUS only (and I mean it this time!!), payment via personal or bank check, not PayPal. If that makes you edgy, I can give you personal info—I have a public presence. PM or even better email: Richfurmanphd@gmail.com

I bet your Bearded Dragon likes this one too !

Confess that is really why you decided to keep it ... along with it being something you really don't want to part with.

LOl.....Beardy seems be less excited about this one. The truth is, this is by FAR my best playing uke. It feels amazing in my hands. I am not sure what it is--the radius, the "glossy" walnut neck. the shape of the neck, the "quality" of the neck--it just feels great, and I can play for hours. That said, it is a bit quieter than some of my other nice ukes, which is a surprise. I know, I know, I need to change the string and see if that helps--need to do a search and look into "loud" strings.

I also just struggle with having this many ukes--it feels a bit indulgent, but I do really like all the ones that I have a good deal. so...

It struck me that a man being ruled into decisions by his lizard could conjure up ideas other than the ones meant to be conjured

hey folks, i'm not sure that carrying on a conversation about an instrument that is not for sale
is necessarily helping other members here on the marketplace board
who are actually trying to sell something

Don't think it hurts - The title was changed indicating it's no longer for sale. So folks don't have to click on the thread.
Might even bring a little more traffic to the marketplace, though I think people who are looking check the marketplace often.

Just a discussion about a uke and that's ok I think. There are a lot more threads that get off track, posted in less than optimal categories or cross posted in more than one area.

As the title is changed I think most can decide to view, participate or not. If contrary thinking - sorry for responding in the thread. It's a neat Uke and figured a little more discussion doesn't hurt. Sometimes the best uke is the one you don't sell and decide to keep.
