Not mine- Let's see, buy a new car or a robot ukulele? This is really for sale:

The hawaii 5-0 on that is pretty impressive I have to say xD

Funny. It's only 900 dollars more than the Jake uke on Ebay.

This is the act of a complete psychotic innit?
That said- I think I like it. I would pay only about $100 for the thing though

I'm sure it's a marvel of player piano-like programming, but I feel really bad for that ukulele. It looks like Hannibal Lechter, all strapped in like that. If I were unfathomably wealthy, I'd buy that device just to liberate that poor ukulele.

The musician side of me asks, "why?" But the engineer/techie geek side replies, "shut up, stupid, it's awesome!"

Might be some kind of Fluke thing going on.

Ha! I'd forgotten all about that site. The tubes one has been around for about ten years, now. Very creative.

I'd rather have a Jake CD for $20. And play my own ukes. And by saving the $17K, I can now buy the Kamaka pineapple I want and be 16K+ up!
