Hi all,

Last year I picked up what I thought was my absolute dream uke - a beautiful 19" tenor uke made by UK luthier Marshall Stapleton. Original SUS listing is here:

https://www.southernukulelestore.co...le-dgbe-tuning-sinker-redwood-birdseye-maple/

Unfortunately, all this actually did was give me the urge to play guitar again so I've been clearing out partly for my own sanity and partly to fund a guitar purchase. I've asked Matt over at The Uke Room to sell it for me and also to do a full setup on the Stapleton - frets dressed, action perfected, etc. It's here:

https://theukeroom.com/product/marshall-stapleton-short-scale-baritone-jumbo-tenor/

I want to let forum members know that I AM OPEN TO OFFERS. I want it gone rather than hanging about and I want to buy a decent guitar! If you ping Matt an email with an offer I am very likely to accept (unless your offer is £50 or a six pack of beers, etc.).

Hi Pirate Jim,

How about the neck ... does it have a radius?

Cheers,

Hey Sam,

This one is flat, no radius! Neck profile fairly rounded and deep, not flat and slim. I.e. more Pono than Kiwaya.

Cheers,

Jim

Nice! Looks like a killer deal. Good luck with the sale. BTW, some of the specs on the listings don't match - back, scale, etc.

Wow! Great looking bari. Wish I played them.

From the materials listed, people shouldn't have any problems with CITES.

Best of luck with the sale. Sorry we lost one to the Dark Side—but you'll be back... :)

Good spot Jim - the SUS specs are the correct ones. I'll let Matt know to correct the listing!

Dealing with Matt is a fantastic experience. He is a great person to talk with and his experience and knowledge will help you decide.The Uke Room is a little pearl in the Forest.
