    Default Which Ukulele should I buy?

    Here's two Ukulele's that have caught my eye, I'm looking for a new one. Unfortunately, neither of them have brand names that I can look at reviews for etc.

    Which one do you suggest I buy?

    The first one, I'm attracted to the pickup, while for the second one, I'm attracted to the fact that it's a low G. Both are laminate.

    Thanks

    You can add a low G to any uke - it's just a string - so don't let that be a factor.

    For a first purchase, I recommend you buy from one of the major brands that do get good reviews, & buy it from one of the respected sellers who do a proper set up for you.

    I second that. If you buy an instrument that is lousy or not set up well it will not be fun to play and you will struggle. You will end up either giving up or buying something else that you should have bought in the first place.
