This ends in a few days, and I think Im gonna snatch it up. Its a little 30" long kid's battery powered guitar. BUT, I have plans for it. It has a maple neck, and "hardwood" (altho it doesn't say what kind) body. I'm gonna chop it up, and make a Uke out of it. I think chopping and re-shaping the headstock I can turn it into a 4 string pretty easy. The neck bolts on, so I will probably take it off and thin it out some, because it looks weird as thick as it is. Maybe build a bridge for it if the one that is on it won't work out. But, I think this would make a cool little electric uke...

Aloha Tudorp,
Good Idea, Maybe you check around you can find the same type of adjustable 4 string electric ukulele bridge to put on there...Keep us in the loop with your progress...MM Stan
