My friend in Norway ran into Morgan ukuleles, which have a Telecaster and Les Paul model that looks a lot like the highly sought after (and sadly discontinued) Kiwaya K-wave rock ukes.

They appear to be concert sized (I'm not sure), they appear to be well made, and have active electronics.

Can anyone find a source to buy them internationally? So far, you only seem to be able to buy in Norway..

Gotta bump this up because I might have to get one of those Telecasters. So nice looking. Hope someone finds some US info. Good find, kissing!

Thanks mm stan :D
It's a funny case of UAS this time (when isn't it?).
I have a spare Concert hardcase lying around with no uke to put in it... I feel an empty void needing to be filled :(
I'm kinda eyeing the cherry sunburst Les Paul, because it looks closest to this;

The black Les Paul style uke with the dual humbuckers is the Risa Les Paul steel-string electric tenor.
They also come in Soprano, and in Cherry Sunburst and Natural finish ( ukulele.de ). It's a darling :) (who put me in debt earlier this year >_< )

I can't find any obviously visible differences between these Morgan ukes and the Kiwaya K-Waves....

Wonder what they cost?

Tried converting the price from the above site and it came out to about $250 USD.

$250 would even be a tad bit less than the K-Waves sold for, I think. But how much is shipping from Norway?

Aloha Kissing,
That's a good excuse to get a new uke, "got an empty bag" gotta remember that one!!!any sales on bags anywhere???he he
and that Les Paul looks awesome, must have set you far back for awhile...eh! How does it sound compared to the rest??
I have a mini japanese tele guitar that size with a single humbucker and a broken nut...I was thinking since I'm going to
replace the nut, I shoud put in a 4 string ukulele one since I don't play it anymore...what do you think??? MM Stan..
