    If I ordered a high-end uke and got sides that were that obviously different, I'd certainly notice it. But if the luthier sent along that story about the table, what might have been a bug would definitely become a feature. I love that story. --Dave

    NOT in the least! I'd love to have that uke, knowing what care you build into them. I'd be proud to play the heck out of it and show it off, and when my friends ask me if it's a Martin, say, "What do you think?"

    It doesn’t bother me, either. The top is gorgeous. As are the sides, bottom and neck.
    And with the addition of a strap button and a strap, one wil never notice this.

    I would see bit but if it plays great I would not care.. Also, you sell your ukes via bids and include actual pictures of the uke.. if you mention this in the listing.. you will still get the fair value for the uke.. If I did not already own a couple of Cubans, I would have bid on this one :-)

    I think the answer seems to be that it really doesn't matter at all Ken.

    Well, that one sold in an instant on eBay, so I guess it's not a problem at all!

    If it sounded and played great and the price was right I wouldn't even notice.

    Agreed — take down the picture. Everyone will want one with the ‘flaw’
