Looks to be solid wood? Anyone played one? Seems like an exceptional deal...
I would love to hear what you have to say about this uke.

If you could post a link to it, then folks will give you some feedback on the uke.

Here's a link- I can't find a site that says that it is or is not all solid mahogany. They just say "all mahogany".

In the world of luthiery, if it does not say "solid" it is laminate.
