Nava Handmade Baritone Ukulele For Sale

I’m offering for sale this lovely baritone ukulele. I completed it in 2019, and intended to keep it in my collection, however as I’ve hardly played it in that time, I feel that it’s time to let it go to someone who will play and enjoy it: after all it’s what they’re made for!

If you watch the video, that I made back in 2019, I run through the spec and give a little demo. The only things that are different are: I changed the tuner buttons back to the original metal ones as an ebony one split, lowered the action to 2mm @ 12th fret and put on a new set of Martin Fluorocarbon strings.

I should say that this is a lightly built and lightly finished instrument and probably not suitable for knocking about with at your local uke club!

I’m looking for offers around £800 (this includes a case) shipping is extra. In the video, I mention that I no longer make baritone ukes as my method of construction makes them economically unviable. However, if I were ever to build another, I’d be asking at least 2K.

Please feel free to contact me, via my website, with any questions. Loads more photos below!

Standard Mandolin XVI update

The rosewood Standard is now together and the next step for me is to set it up, in the white, before the finishing process starts.

There are a couple of photos below. I’m very pleased with the Pau Ferro details on the back. Now the heel cap has been fitted, everything ties nicely together.

This should be ready early summer so if you wish to register an interest, please feel free to contact me via my website.
