    It's what is known as "a joke". They are quite popular in these here parts.

    This thread is affecting our brain...Isolation over yet?

    Bars jams now opening up again and I just installed all new tubes!

    Didn't Hendrix set fire to a very similar ukulele?

    He gave up playing it with his teeth because his nose got stuck in the hole........honest!

    One thing in this post is certain. SRV once farted. Everything else is suspect. I’d proceed with caution...good luck!

    I don't think the toanwood makes as much difference as the huge butthole under the strings, that's where all your toan and the SRV essence emitts from mostly.

    Accidental post, how do I delete under the edit options ?

    Anyway I think it's pretty obviously a Squire

    I would try offering $10, with a final offer of $15. Seriously, it's a $100 import from GC/MF, and they cost about $5 to manufacture (at a 3rd world "factory" where they pay employees with bags of rice).
    Also, If this guy doesn't know anything about guitars, how does he know it's worth $25k?

    I guess you missed that this is a joke/parody thread.

    That's a Ukulele, made by the Luna brand. $25 K pennies at the top end.

    I must be missing something because you never said anything about Fullerton curves or routing pin holes in this thread. @nutball73 did. See my quotes above.

    So, what are you going on about? Why are your panties in such a bunch? So-called experts? Someone obviously ruffled your feathers.

    Let's follow the facts:
    • Jimi Hendrix played his strat flipped upside down, right? Look at the word LUNA on the headstock. If you flip the "L" upside down (Jimi style!), it says "TUNA."
    • Who's the famous tuna? Charlie
    • Who's the Charlie that played jazz? Charlie Parker
    • Who do I sometimes get his name confused with? Colonel Parker
    • Who did Colonel Parker manage? Elvis
    • And what do you get if you mispronounce "Elvis"? Ebidis
    Dude, the facts are plain as day -- that was Elvis's guitar, not SRV's. Now you have to buy it!
