    Hi Rugbydemon

    have a look at :
    http://www.apc-instruments.com/indexen.html

    and a review (in french) http://www.ukulele.fr/forum/index.php?topic=7425.0

    Bought one in february for 120 €. A pretty good instrument which becomes better everyday as it gets older... 'was still smelling glue when I got it. Just changed the strings for akila.

    Voili voilou.

    Ha! - I have just bought exactly this Uke from the store. It is my second Uke (trying to justify a third!) to go with my Kala concert. It is a seriously fun instrument.

    I have a Lag ukulele. They are made in France. Mine is the black high-gloss concert model. It sounds really good.
    . . . and justice for all.

    I think your $150 limits the amount of Luthiers making instruments for that price.You might want to shift your focus to Factory made ukuleles??
