Ive been thinking i need a better sounding outdoor uke.
The fluke and flea look like the ticket and this one looks good.
Hmmn?

I pulled it out yesterday, I am surprised it's still in tune . Can't even remember when was the last time I tune it.
It's a great size for traveling and stand up to all type of temperature . Truly a great zero maintenance instrument.

It's call 'Reprise ' from 'sprinted away' composed by a famous Japanese musician
Learned it on Friday. If you google it may also fall under 'always with me - reprise'

This is a great sounding Uke. Good looking price as well.

I heard these don't need the maintenance like a wood Uke does. It's a good looking and sounding knock around Uke. With winter coming I may need a care free Uke.

We have most of the films by Studio Ghibli and Hayao Miyazaki. You should check them out...they are classics.

Oh and, love those Flukes also!

Yes, I first heard the songs played by Corey.
My version is arranged by Kiyoshi Kobayashi who is a Japanese ukulele master. I have purchased two of his books.
The song is : 'Reprise' in the movie Sprinted Away.
The video you suggested is also from the same movie , ' Always With Me'.
Thank you for browsing.
This Fluke is still available!

I am not the seller, but perhaps this information, taken directly from The Magic Fluke Company web site will help you:

If you look at picture of the back again, Those strips are to prevent the uke from sliding. It's the official strips from magic fluke. It's an additional cost if you purchase the instrument new.

It has Perfect action. Hardly ever go out of tune!

Thank you Booli for the great detail.

Wow. Can't believe this is still here.

Great price. I can vouch for SoloRule who is a very fussy owner and takes care of all her Ukes.

Great deal.

I'll second that. Brenda takes great care of her instruments and is also a wonderful person to deal with. I'm staggered that this little beauty has not sold.
