    Default Picked Up a Flea Yesterday

    I took the day off yesterday and my wife and I drove down to Cape Coral to pick up a Flea that I had seen on Craigslist. It's got the polycarbonate fretboard and hoop pine top. I'm not sure of the color, but it looks like pistachio green to me.

    We stopped at Siesta Key Beach on the way home and I enjoyed playing my new uke with toes in the sand and sea breeze on my face. It was a very good day!

    Great find.! I was searching for one in that color and had no luck. Where did you gind that if you don't mind me asking?

    They do not make that color anymore. I played my flea on the beach last week and it was so much fun - better than I imagined.

    Thanks, folks.

    I found this used on Craigslist. The guy said he bought it on vacation in Hawaii a few years ago but recently purchased a Lanakai and wasn't using the Flea anymore.

    I see you're nearby. Maybe we can get a few of us from the Central Florida area together for a uke jam.

    Sarasota was the main stop on our trip. I have a '35 Gretsch archtop guitar I took to Siesta Key Guitars to have Dave look at (it needs some neck work). I had already talked to the seller about shipping the Flea to Winter Haven, but decided it wasn't that much farther down the road to Cape Coral and it was a nice day for a ride.
