if you have $200, then go to Mainland Uke's website - and buy a new one! They are wonderful, all solid wood instruments. You will like very much! (and they take PayPal I think)

Dont get me wrong, Fleas and Flukes are brilliant instruments - I have been playing one for last 18 months.

That said though... I think the tone is overly bright and a bit (dare i say it, plastic). I found myself a few months in hankering for a warmer mellower sound, and ended up buying another Uke (wooden).

I also think the Flukes are overpriced for what it is you are getting (ie factory molded bits glued together).

They are great fun, and are bulletproof too - sure you wont regret, but just my two cents, for $200 dollars, there are better options out there.

Keep checking eBay. Sometimes you can find a Flea or Fluke under $200. If you find one, tell your parents.

Otherwise, you've got to save up.

I know this is a new model. Has anyone here played one of these? I'm interested in knowing more about their sound and playability.

I bought a Lanikai Solid Mahogany and love it. It was $220. I almost bought the Kala Solid Mahogany and it's exactly $200. Although not Solid Koa, in which I dream, but it still is a wood instrument which I prefer. I was torn between the two!

Check your local Craigslist regularly, I found both my Flea, and my Fluke with pickup each for $100.00.

When you get your new uke, you'll think your cousin did you a favor.
