It feels to be of cheap construction, and has metal strings???

Buy it! Store it away! Keep it cool, safe, and dry!

Then in thirty years you can sell it on eBay for $20.:smileybounce:

I saw those too. Heck, spreading the love cheaply anywhere is better than not spreading the love at all.

Strings didn't look metal to me, but one looked broken.

It's an untuneable ukulele yhat comes with learning instructions. I tried one and was totally unimpressed. I'll post a photo of that POS that's found in the bargain section of Barnes and Noble as soon as I find the photo of the one I snapshotted. Ric

More "barn" than "noble" I'm guessing... :D

I don't know... if it's a cruddy uke, then it might be spreading the hate more than anything else. :(

You really don't want people giving up on the uke because their only experience with it was a hard-to-play, untunable instrument that sounds like poo. Hopefully the book that comes with it is good, at least.

That's what I was thinking when I saw it.

JJAgreed, and actually my car uke was a $30 one I found at Costco made by Pignose......cheap, sounds okay with new strings, and great in the car or at the beach. probably a better deal.
