    Default Beautiful Anuenue Concert Banjo Uke- a fantastic player with hard case

    Well, the sell-off continues, and the next instrument to be sacrificed is my Anuenue concert banjo ukulele. This was an exceptional entry into the banjo ukulele market. It's a shame they didn't continue making them (and puzzling, considering they couldn't keep them on the shelves when they did).

    This is a concert scale banjo ukulele, with an 8" head. The rim, resonator and neck are made from gorgeous curly maple. I haven't seen this kind of wood (or anything close) on any other production banjo uke. Just striking. Ebony fretboard, ebony and maple bridge, brass hardware, which is burnished to give an antique-y, almost steam-punk look. Buffalo bone nut and saddle. Another bonus is the addition of a removable arm rest- a very nice and uncommon feature.

    This banjo uke plays very comfortably, with nice easy action and excellent volume. The tone can be modified by playing it with the resonator in place, or removing it for an open-back sound. The Ukulele Guy demonstrates this is one of his videos.

    This instrument is in mint condition, apart from a very tiny ding in the underside of the rim (pictured). I was unaware of it the entire time I've owned this uke, and only discovered wit while taking photos for this sale.

    Here's a very nice example of this model being fingerpicked:

    Here's the only one I could find currently for sale,(at $535.00): http://www.guitarjunky.ca/spip.php?article1088

    This uke ships in the very high quality hard case pictured. These cases alone sell for $95.

    Asking $390 + actual shipping and insurance. Paypal gift or buyer pays paypal fees. Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions, and thanks for looking!
