I was wondering if there were any sites that sell vintage ukuleles aside from ebay and reverb that are in good playing condition?
Jake Wildwood is a good place to try. He does excellent repairs and setups on old ukuleles (among other things) when he gets them in.

I'm ashamed to say I've not visited Matt Stead's The Uke Room yet, but if I were after a vintage uke that's where I would go first. It's not that far from where I live either.

Watch Aaron Keim’s Beansprout Ukulele. He is known to buy truly vintage ukuleles, study them, and then repair them. I think most go on eBay, but if you have a specific request, I would reach out to him and ask him to keep an eye out for a specific model, or arrange to buy one in disrepair and have him repair it.
