    I vote Yes. Youíd be supporting the small business community. And if you donít, you may later regret it. Never postpone joy. :-)

    There were some seconds or blems listed recently for a substantially reduced price. Kevin stated it was for cosmetic reasons, and did not affect the sound. On one he said the wood was too dark!

    Don't know if this is one of those or not. Either way, it's a good deal.

    No, Janet, you don't need another uke.......


    .....but on the other hand, we all like something different, so if it will give you pleasure, (& you can afford it), why not.

    Numbers look good. You haven't had UAS strike in years. Can't really ID the downside of saying yes to this...

    Unless the current owner was using his Cocobolo uke as a fly swatter, I'd say go for it. I'm a happy Cocobolo owner and honestly, I've never heard anyone say bad things about them. And that price is a great deal!

    If you don't have one - Yes! That's half price.
    Too many ukes, but I can't stop buying!

    Janet,
    That is a steal of a deal.
    However, I will tell you that I have a friend who bought a Cocobolo soprano. I've heard other sopranos that I like better. But probably not for $300.
    The concert size and tenor size Cocobolos? O M G!

    I just wish those concerts weren't 16" scale. I hope for a soprano
