    Lanakai LU-21, bought on eBay for about $80. Great uke! Put Worth Clears on it, tuned to open G. It's a blues-strumming monster.

    I bought a lanikai 21 B for my son. He didn't play ity so now its mine. I am interested in the C tuning. How does that work out.

    Honestly, had no idea that this thread was happening when I posted my Makala baritone in the marketplace, funny!

    Yay! Baritones! What a great thread!

    So after my close-encounter with a Harmony bari purchase that wasn't meant to be, I bought an Enya HPL baritone! LOL! Two totally different creatures, but a comment on my other thread got me thinking in another direction. For now, LOL!

    Love hearing about everyone's experiences with different models. Keep 'em coming!

    BTW, I have my Mainland bari tuned reentrant G. Absolutely enamored of it this way. I use it for Daniel Ward's Arpeggio Meditations. Heavenly. I can almost convince myself I'm playing a classical guitar. Lovely, soothing, deep mellow sounds.

    And I swooped in and claimed it! Now I have two Ukes waiting for my return to the USA in June. If only there was teleportation technology available

    two examples of inexpensive baritones....
    The Rogue:

    I've had two Rogues, both wonderful, believe it or not. Changed strings, and tuners on one of them.

    And here's the Hora, a solid mahogany baritone made in Romania. I like it a lot.

    (I have posted these before, but they show off the instruments in question, so here they are again...)

    I love my Caramel rosewood laminate with Ovation-style mini soundholes! Fantastic for well under $100.
