    Default Looking for a Flea Soprano in Purple

    I apologize for making this so vague, and I hope I'm not straying too far from normal Marketplace protocol, but I'm just wondering if anyone has a purple soprano Flea they might consider selling, or possibly trading for something in my herd, or perhaps a combination of a trade plus cash. If interested, please send me a private message and we can discuss. Thanks!

    Is it the purple-ness that's most important? Bonanza has an eggplant color: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xIj58zN9qw0

    Thanks Jim, but although the Bonanza looks and sounds great, the purple-ness is in fact most important in my situation.

    I was trying to say the color is pretty similar.

    Elderly has one in stock: https://www.elderly.com/products/mag...sh-with-gigbag

    I've seen them described as Poi-ple, Grape and Amethyst/ Here's one on Elderly.

    Well, that certainly went right over my head! But honestly, I'm really hoping for a pre-owned Flea, in the amethyst purple. The Magic Fluke site doesn't seem to offer that color any more, and I'm just not sure I want to part with the dollars that Elderly is asking. Thanks, Jim, Bill, Igor and John!

    I need the hardwood fretboard on any Flea Fluke that I buy. I wonder how that would look with purple poi-ple amethyst
    Alternately I want the all black one

    I check eBay every few days, and there was a purple Flea or Fluke for sale a few days ago. Keep checking eBay, and you'll find one eventually. You always have the option of a can of spray paint.
    Too many ukes, but I can't stop buying!

    Hahahahaha! Good point, Jerry! I'll just keep checking eBay and Reverb, and perhaps I'll spot what I'm looking for soon. In the meantime, I'm blessed to have more than I need, whether that includes a purple Flea or not! Everyone have a good week!
