    SM-58's are a victim of their own success. They can't change and they can't get better because everyone is just so used to them and want's them. Anyway, if all you need is an SM-58 then you can get...

    I'd negotiate with the seller first and ask them how they wish to proceed. It may be a simple fix like a drop of glue. If you like the instrument otherwise and the buzz can be fixed simply then I'd...

    Its the NEW ukulele that looks a little suspect as Mahogany. Use the OLD Martin ukulele as your reference for Mahogany. The new one is suspect.
