"It's a Les Paul Uke!"

I love the looks of this ukulele. When I took it out of the box it exceded my expectations on looks. I purchased my first 4 ukuleles at the same time, this is the only acoustic/electric I chose. The acoustic sound doesn't resonate as well as an 'acoustic only' ukulele, but don't let that deter you. It is great as an electric and, let's be honest, one would mainly be interested in this one because it looks like a Les Paul. It is a Les Paul and it is made very well.
Acoustic sound isn't as full as I would like. I play many different styles, picking and strumming. I am very satisfied while plugged in, which was my intended use.
The tuners are very nice. They don't detune themselves like some lesser quality tuners do. I am primarily a guitar player so this was the first thing I tested. Nothing is more frustrating than bad tuners. This one will not let you down. The pickup works well, there is no volume knobs or equalizer so you get what you get. You will have to adjust sound on the audio side. The ability to use a strap is a great feature.
Ease of Use
It's a concert size ukulele. It is as playable as any ukulele of this size. I am satisfied with the action.
I don't feel this uke would fall apart on it's own. It is very solid. Take care of it as you would any guitar or ukulele and it would last you as long as you need it to.
The value far exceded my expectations.
The Wow Factor
It is a Les Paul.
I have been playing music for 23 years. Drums, Piano, Guitar, and now Ukulele
rock, classic country, blues, a little of everything really.
