    Default FS FT 2 Custom Baritones and 1 Vintage Long Neck Soprano Banjolele

    Three beautiful, one of a kind ukes for sale. Two custom Kelali baritones and 1 custom painted vintage 1920s Stromberg-Voisinet long neck soprano banjolele. Open to trade for a Kamaka HF-4 or a sinker redwood tenor.

    I've had two clean, successful purchases with other UU members and have had clean, successful uke sales on Reverb, OfferUp, Facebook and Craigslist. I always insist on a face to face video chat to show and demo my ukes before shipping.

    Uke 1: Custom Kelali Baritone with a 2000 yr old Premium Curly Redwood Top / Premium Grade Curly Fiddleback Maple Back & Sides with Oscar Schmidt hardcase

    This gorgeous, finely crafted uke sports a clean, elegant design with intense curl on its soundboard and sides, the beauty of which is matched by its sound - an impressively open, evenly balanced tone that sounds deep, full and mature.
