This is on a belgian site for sale, any idea what brand it is, what kind of ukulele, what it sounds like and how much I should bid/ How much it is actually worth? The owner doesn't share any information...

It looks new. Also looks like it would play like a brick floats. No I don't know what that means. Perhaps you can get an audio or video sample?

I believe it's a inexpensive Chinese made laminate same as those sold in the USA with the "Santini" label. I definitely would not pay more than the exchange rate for $57.95 US Dollars. If it's the same ukulele they are known to have high actions that need to be adjusted straight from the box.

If is the same ukulele, save your pennies. Our first uke was a Santini (not this one), good stings didn't help, good set up didn't help. Good stand on a shelf in my dining room helped, sure is pretty to look at.

Thanks a lot for responding so quickly, the highest bid so far is €40 or 52$...
I'm out and looking for another one, (I already have a repaired kanile'a coming) The UAS even gets to the newbies apparently...
Anyway, thanks, if it wasn't for you I would've probably spent a fortune on that chinese crap...

If you like the look Ohana's Vita-uke may tickle your fancy, or UAS
