**Once upon a time - There was a bad batch of finish. Where if there was a small variation of temperature, the finish of The Rebel Ukuleles would get finish cracks. And as it often is with my luck... I got most of that batch. Boo. Story of my life.
So if it DOES happen, this is what it is like. these thin spider cracks are sometimes subtle, sometimes prominent, and on about 50% of this batch it did not happen at all! Unfortunately, since they are an international company, there is no way for me to ship these ukuleles back to them, so they agreed I can go nuts and heavily discount them.
THESE ARE NOT CRACKS IN THE WOOD! The wood is actually fine and dandy. It is literally just the finish. BUT! THIS ONE HAS NO CRACKS! No cracks...yet...! BUT it may never have cracks! But there is a 50/50 chance that if this ukulele experiences cold variations it may get these ONLY finish cracks. So do you feel lucky? Well do ya?
Take a risk... take a gamble. Because it does save $150. And if it weirdly does happen, consider it a "vintage look". And just own the fact that although it looks funky, these are some of the BEST sounding and BEST playing ukuleles around and now you can have one for a SUPER cheap price! My loss is your gain! Once these glosses are gone I will only be stocking the matte finish as a result. So you can order those with confidence!**
This is an opportunity to own the first one of it's kind. This is The Rebel Prototype of the Acacia. The first one to be made. With ebony detailing and a stunning maple fretboard! It is a beautiful wood with a great tone! It could end up being a one of a kind depending if they end up sending these exact specs into production. I am unsure if this is the direction the brand will be going. But no matter what, it is the first of it's kind and is a unique opportunity to own an awesome The Rebel ukulele, but with a little something special that sets it apart.
The Rebel Ukuleles are crafted out of a unique partnership of artistry and luthiery. The design and tone of these ukuleles are exceptional!
The Acacia pack a warm, hard, woody punch with a full resonant sound. The build and lightness of this instrument gives it the nice crisp attack, even tones, and resonance that you would want out of your ukulele! It is an all around great sounding ukulele. With florocarbon strings and 4:1 ratio Gotoh UPT tuners, these ukuleles are made with only the best woods and appointments. It has a tenor scale on a unique maple fretboard with beautiful Rebel signature fret markers. This model has the standard body thickness. These come strung low G.
The design and artistry that goes into every The Rebel ukulele is something to be noted. From the multiple wood headstock logo to the fretboard inlay, you are truly buying a playable piece of art!
It comes with a free Rebel bag and will be set up for you by me, Mim!
