I am looking for review on this uke. It has a very unique look and seems to be built for classical finger picking style . I look forward to your input. Thank you.

I don't know if you noticed but the one being played and the picture are different. The being played has a sloted head. I( have one like the one pictured. I don't play it much. I like the looks, but having my own bowl in my lap, space gets limited because of the design. I am also looking to try another set of strings on mine since watching the video, since mine sounds nothing like that.

Definitely try before you buy !! I've not tried a bowl-back ukulele, but experience with similar shaped mandolin and guitar suggests they can be a pig to hang onto. Look how "scrunched-up" the player is in the video, would you be comfortable like that?

If you're young, slim and fit, maybe ... not for me :(

YMMV ;)
