A few week ago I picked up a Fluke looking ukulele made by a guy in San Diego. I was asked to provide a sample so here goes... I hope

I am running a sophisticated recording setup consisting of a Rock Band mic sitting on an Ikea computer desk into an older version of Mixcraft 4.

The ukulele is made out of poplar, it has a 15 inch concert scale and I am using Southcoast Medium strings.

(edit) thanks for fixing the link, sounds nice and clean.
That headstock looks funky too, and I love the sidehole config.
What's Fred Shields' story?

That link worked. Very sweet sounding ukulele. Nice playing, too.
