    Default FS: Antica Ukuleleria Sacco soprano

    Price: $525 includes shipping to ConUSA. Cost to me with shipping from Italy was about $675. Includes soft case that was ordered with the uke. Wait time otherwise may be half a year.

    Like new condition, hand built soprano by Marco Todeschini. This is THE actual ukulele reviewed by by Barry at GotAUkulele. Best to let you read the review, with sound sample:

    Selling because I found the wider flat fretboard is difficult for me to fret and I already have a Blackbird Clara, so this uke is not being played.

    Best to email me at dwdong21@yahoo.com.

    What is the width of the fretboard? How would you describe the sound? How is the shape to hold and play. I really liked this Uke and process when it came out. I studied the well done videos for a long time. I asked if they could make a tenor, and Marco said he might.....but to date.........nothing. I don’t play this size but good luck with sale and I. Curious on answers to my questions. Thanks

    Nut is 37-38 mm wide. String spacing is 30 mm. I find holding the uke easy in that the narrow body is comfortable and the shape really is not noticed because it rests like the lower bout of a regular shaped uke. It is loud and bright... don't know how to describe it more and recommend listening to Barry's sound sample.

    He makes this only in soprano size. In order to do this, he had to construct a mold and all the paraphernalia to make it work. Making another size would require a huge amount of work.

    No bites yet... but no rush either. I read your NUD post and laughed on the timing. I actually had to wait a few months after Barry's GotAUkulele review as he had a second Antica (the sopranino) to review before returning them to Marco. So I did not get it until end of September after contacting Marco right after the first review to reserve it.

    I have a Blackbird Clara and wanted to see if it would be a soprano companion to it. Once I bought my Silver Anniversary Red Label KoAloha, I decided to let it go as I was not playing it very much and would take the Clara with me once travelling safely reopened.

    Bump for this unique, hand made by Marco ukulele. Save yourself a half year wait with this "like new" one.

    Correction. He's now making the tenor size now (see his website). Adds 100 Euro... to any configuration price. Wait is now to November.

    Jerry... What were your shipping and Customs/Import charges? UPS stuck me with customs of $85 for a Libero and UFOS and Marco's shipping was close to $80. I hit the Euro exchange at it's peak :-(

    My total price included shipping of 85 Euros, about $100 USD and did not have any customs charges tacked on. I include shipping to the ConUSA without a wait and without rolling the dice on being surprised with a customs charge. Includes a review of the actual instrument by an expert!

    I'm glad he's making tenors now because that's a very popular size. Unfortunately, with a one-man operation, I can see the waiting time stretching out to years. I waited seven months for his standard soprano.

    I paid the shipping charge, and that's all. I was hit with a big bill from UPS for something when they shipped the Kanile'a from England. The general opinion here at the time was that if the item being "imported" is over $800, you pay a fee.
