Not what you might think...10/2/2011
This looks absolutely nothing like the beautiful wood grained picture on the box. This is a painted ukulele! I contacted the manufacture twice about this and got NO reply. If I wanted a painted ukulele I would have bought a Mahalo or at least a Makala. If you realize this and the fact that the strings (as expected) are total junk, you won't be disappointed. Ad a set of Aquila Nylagut strings and it will sound decent, but for that much money you could have bought a better uke.
My 15 year old cousin got this and he absolutely loves it. he started playing guitar when he was 13 and wanted something a little more portable and also something to just "pluck around on". I even picked it up and started playing and plan on ordering one within the week. It looks good for the price but sound wise isn't the best. I love it and can't wait to get my own!
