    Default WTB: Spruce top tenor uke (especially a Collings)

    Hello good people,

    I don't know what I was thinking when I sold my Collings tenor uke with Sitka top a few months ago... As it turns out, spruce is my top wood of choice, and that Collings hit the sweet spot for me.

    If you've got a spruce topped tenor for sale--Collings or otherwise--please do sent me a note along with your asking price, shipped to Houston, TX. I've got an all mahogany Covered Bridge tenor I'd be willing to offer as trade/partial trade, if that would interest you.

    Thanks in advance!

    I have for sale a Pono Pro Classic Slot Head with cutaway, solid sides and back are red Wiawa wood with a spruce top. The "WOW" factor on this ukulele is a solid 10. If intested contact me for price.

    I just picked up the same uke and agree on the Wow factor. And the sustain and clarity is amazing.

    Breedlove makes a nice spruce top tenor that sells for about $900-$1,000.

    And there is a new EIR body / Spruce top Kinnard listed over on FMM for $1,750.
