Anyone know the story on these ukes?

There is a bunch on e-bay (http://cgi.ebay.com/Ukulele-Mandola-Uke-8-String-Solid-Mahogany-Dolphin_W0QQitemZ360099569052QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH _DefaultDomain_0?hash=item53d79b5d9c&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14&_trkparms=65%3A12%7C66%3A2%7C39%3A1%7C72%3A1205%7C 293%3A1%7C294%3A50)and they're pretty inexpensive. My feeling is at that for $79USD it is going to be a P.O.S. but just wondering if anyone has tried one...

They provide Highest Quality Song so I'm sure they're legit. ;)

I've heard terrible stores about the bridge popping off while playing.

It sure is nice looking though.

They say solid wood on eBay but when asked they admitted they were laminate.
Not a bad price for even a laminate 8 string tenor but not sure of quality or playability.

DeG, here is a thread I started on this same uke about a year ago.

P.S. I took kanaka's advice.

Dang, I did a search before posting the question, and did not find that thread.
