Thread Name: 10K for a Uke??!!
Subject: RE: 10K for a Uke??!!
JP, I wouldn't have a clue over the value of a uke (or any other instrument) but I have to agree that 5K sounds high.

I'm not clear whether people are actually misleading people on ebay or not but I hope that prices don't end up being driven to stupid levels there. An instrument is a tool first and formost to me and I've always had the sort of silly believe that good instruments should go to people who can appreciate them as musical instruments. I get nervous over collecters who want to put them in glass cages for example - all they seem to me to do is drive prices up and make it harder for those who want to play.
