WOW, this little ukulele is amazing. I have quite a few high-end stringed instruments and this one really holds up well to the lot. Solid top really sings, such a nice round and rich tone. The fit and finish are what you would find in a more expensive instrument. As this open pore finish ages, I expect it will only improve in tone. This is my first Baritone and being a guitar player, it is a great fit.
