Well, first things to consider for a recommendation would be what kind of budget and what scale of ukulele are you initially thinking about?

My initial suggestion would be to scroll through the various forums a bit and poke around. This kind of question gets asked a lot and you'd be able to get a lot of info that way initially that folks could elaborate on. It will help you get a handle on what you want out of an instrument and the questions you need to know that will inform that decision.

Do some reading. It'll help folks better guide your decision.

Look around locally, then make sure to check out MGM on ebay. His products, prices, and service are the best. I just spent $164 on a new Koalana Concert with upgraded strings and a hard case---with free shipping to boot! I hope to have a review posted soon.
