    Default FS: Stansell Baritone Black Walnut/Incense Cedar

    For Sale: Stansell Black Walnut/Incense Cedar custom baritone in very good condition to excellent condition. Here are the specs:

    • Black Walnut Back, sides, head plate, backplate
    • Incense Cedar top
    • Port Orford Cedar Necks & Bracing (Spanish Design)
    • Myrtle Bindings, bridge, and fingerboard
    • Red & black purfling around rosette, top, and headplate
    • Bone Nut & Saddle
    • 1-7/16 inch fretboard width at nut
    • Strap buttons
    • Hand Applied Shellac Finish
    • PEGHEDS Geared Tuners
    • Comes with UkeCrazy hardcase


    I am the third owner and this outstanding instrument that has been much loved and played. There is some light play wear on the top, but overall it is in very good to excellent condition. There are no cracks or dings, just a couple small playing marks and some light finish wear where your right arm might rest on the lower bout. With the Port Orford Cedar neck and Incense Cedar top this uke even smells amazing.

    Les bases his baritone bracing on a flamenco/Spanish guitar design and over the years perfected a baritone design. This uke is exceptionally light, loud, with excellent string response. The sustain is also excellent. Note separation and clarity are outstanding, about the best on the many baritones I have played. It strums well, but shines when played fingerstyle. It has excellent playability and low action. This is an easy player that is smooth to fret.

    Sold

    Selling to reduce my collection of ukes.

    I have recorded a very recent sound sample.

    What a beautiful set of walnut on that lovely baritone. Great opportunity for somebody to acquire a wonderful instrument at a well under half what new would cost. Good luck with the sale, but I really don't think you'll need any luck with this one.
    More an appreciator of the ukulele than a true player. My motto is: "Don't matter how good it ring if it ain't got some bling."
