    Default Mya-Moe Baritone Classic... my GOOF! is your opportunity

    After 6 mos wait I receive my custom MM in mid-August.After playing it for several weeks and having fretting issues, I realized that fretboard width at the nut is smaller than my old uke. I GOOFED! I didn't take into consideration that my big sausage fingers need the available wider nut/ neck width option. This is MM # 783. Go to their website and enter this number in the uke tracker and see complete specs, photos, and a video demo by Aaron Keim. The Pau Ferro (Bolivian rosewood) and Port Orford cedar (actually cypress) combination makes for a very bright tone with sustain that goes on forever. This is a popular choice of several top custom guitar makers. This wood combo is the only one that MM has ever made. It would be nearly impossible to find a similar grain pattern today, making this truly a one of a kind instrument. It's virtually new and, of course, comes with a MM hard case Current wait time for a new uke from MM is 7 months. My big mistake is your opportunity. Price is $1500 and includes shipping to CONUS.

    The width is 1 3/8" which is standard for MM. The complete specs for all their models is on their website.

    If only somebody would make that kind of "goof" with a MM concert resonator... Good luck with the sale, I don't think you'll have much trouble moving it.
    I'm not entirely convinced that it is possible to polish a turd. However, if one were to accomplish that feat one would still have a turd, and one all the more noticeable for being shiny.
