Ukiyo soprano vita uke in the classic vita tone woods, solid spruce top and solid mahogany back/sides. It is in great shape but has been played and shows strum wear and other little marks on the top. No cracks. Smoke free home. Newish Fremont hard shell case. These have a strap button but they’re only decoration, and shouldn’t be used as such since they slide out to allow the neck be adjusted if ever needed. Great player that needs a new home. I am the original owner. I have a few other photos of the sides if you want them. USA only for now.

I am interested. Do you have a sound sample?

These are exquisite. Mark Shoenberger builds a great ukulele.

Sorry, I don't understand this.

I believe it is the same concept as with this instrument.


The neck is likely bolted on. Because of the non traditional sound holes, it makes it impossible to get a tool in there to adjust. The solution is to put a hole in the end and cover it with a strap button.
