I saw this as well and was wondering what our group thought of this Ukulele?

They describe as solid koa top and koa back and sides, kind of indicates to me the back and sides may be laminate?

Almost certainly laminate; usually if the description of an instrument doesn't say "solid [wood name]," it's laminate. Nothing wrong with that, it's rare to see ANY solid koa in a uke at this price point.

Cutaway: No
Top wood: Solid Hawaiian Koa
Back & sides: Hawaiian Koa
Body finish: Hand Rubbed Oil & Wax

Guitar center and others list it the same. Solid top, lam back and sides. Seems like a good deal.
Anyone own a Tunauke?
