    Default Is a good Bushman Jenny historic?

    Hi, uke collectors---

    Is a pre-troubles Bushman Jenny soprano something I should keep?

    I bought mine in 2006 when they were popular and the company was reliable. Now I've upgraded my uke and I don't play the Jenny. I've considering selling it, but I wonder if it's a collectible now that they're discontinued. Or is it like holding onto an 8-track tape player? I am torn...

    From what I understand, older Bushman ukes were better, but I don't know if they'll ever be collectible. The general forum sentiment is that it's safer to buy a used one than a new one, so you shouldn't have any trouble selling it if you don't play anymore. Just don't expect it to have increased in value; it's still a fairly recent production uke and they did sell a ton of them.

    I wouldn't think there's anything collectible about it. Nice stuff, to be sure, but nothing rare or especially unique about it that would indicate a demand for them now or in the future.

    I bought my daughter one 4 or 5 years back and it might not be collectable, but it is one fine uke.
    peace,

    maybe in about 20 years or so... but, right now, probably not. The good Bushman ukes are positively wonderful though.
