Thanks for the welcome. I have enough challenges just trying to learn to play ukulele, without another instrument right now, so I am offering this one for sale.

It has a soft gig bag, and has rarely been played. It's in like new condition. My wife paid $350 for it, I'll take $250 including freight, shipped to CONUS.

I got her a Seagull Merlin and she much prefers it.

Pictures are below.
