    Great if you could keep them all unless you got a strict “one in one out” rule to adhere to.

    I generally have a pretty strict 1 in 1 out rule (only reason I'll probably sell the Bruko), the Martin and Takumi might be the exception. I'll make up my mind at some point.

    This instrument has now been rehomed

    I'm about to list my first custom build in the Marketplace in the next few days. It's my Boat Paddle (Hoffman Lutherie) ML Tenor Cocobolo back and sides and master grade Red Spuce top. Options included a side sound port, MiSi pickup, Gotoh Planetary tuners, Oasis Humidifier and GWW (Ameritage) custom hard case. I just had 2 sets of new saddles and nuts made up by Jerry.
    It is about 5 years old and has been played well. There is noticeable "strum rash" on the upper bouts and other minor marks that you would expect on a 5 year old instrument that has been played a lot. I'm a player, not a curator of museum pieces.
    I will be travelling to the USA again in September and propose to carry it in with me and ship it while I am in NYC around the 20th of September via Fedex or UPS. I sold my Collings UC2 this way when I was visiting a friend in Hawaii this past May/June and had no problems.
    I'll publish a proper for sale ad soon with accurate photos. Replacement value is about US$3000 and I'm going to be looking for US$1650. I would consider a part trade for a nice but not expensive soprano for my wife who has just decided to learn the Uke.
    Enquires welcomed.
    Here are the original build photo by Jerry:

    And here are photos of it being played in performances:

    As the buyer of the Collings, I can agree that it went very smoothly, and the ukulele seems to have cured my UAS as well. :-)
    (At least for now, LOL.)

    So it was you that bought that Pohaku Art Deco tenor that I was lusting after! Unfortunately I won't be able to buy it off you either because I still can't afford it.

    I’m not sure which one you’re talking about. Peter has made several art deco models over the years mines an older one.

    I realise he has made a few, but I thought it might be the most recent one. Anyway, I would offer to buy it if I had the money.

    I'm selling a Taylor Big Baby. I use to love Martin's when i exclusively played guitar now i seem to be a starter Taylor guy. Got a GS mini the other day. I think the ukuleles brighter tone altered my ears haha.

    This is a confession, i sometimes think of selling my Wunderkammer but chicken out every time. I (shoot me) mostly play my Ohana SK39 with worth browns. It goes EVERYWHERE with me and is still mint. The Wunderkammer lies in its hard case and gets minimal play.

    Story of my life. I had a Martin D28 when i only played guitar and 90% of the time i played my last (i've had 3) Taylor Big Baby.
