ummm, this may be a dumb question, and probably already answered, but what is a riptide ukulele? does it sound differently than a regular ukulele? And one more thing who would think of combining a uke and a banjo? I never realized there was so many strange versions of this instrument. Any one have one of these?

Here's a video and a few threads. I like the overall design and aesthetics of the instrument. To me it seems a tad too bright, but you may like it.

thanks, ive seen the vids. i like the sound, and the way its different from most ukes. But i also saw deaches review, so i don't think i would spend that much money for such an average uke.
