That's not plastic - that's "authentic resin"!

That's the best kind of resin.

I just want to get one to see how it sounds and the intonation is... If its good, and its a new one... I think I have found my new travel uke! :)

I just wrote to them to see how big it is. Can't tell if it's a real soprano, or one of those 18" mini-ukes.

I wish they made plastic ukes in a concert size. My fingers are too thick for a soprano!

Cool grain, but I hate it when they guess where to put the fret markers. Fourth fret? C'mon.

Wow - fast reply!

They wrote me back, informing me that the uke is 'about 18" long.'

Too small for me, but I'm eager to hear reports from anybody who takes the plunge!

Authentic plastic resin. I guess you guys only have that in Hawaii. Comes from that native plastic resin tree, no?

If your read the whole description: " Natural wood design Ukulele. These Ukuleles are perfect for decorating and playing. Authentic plastic resin ukulele brings the Hawaiian island element to your next tropical event." ; these are made to decorate your place for a Hawaiian party. They aren't meant to play. You probably couldn't even tune it.
