A few posts the past few days have commented on a band called the king blues. ive listened to them for the past two years (i think) and for the past 10 months ive watched videos and looked at pics, but i cant seem to figure out the uke.

So far this is the best pic i can come up with, ive never seen the design at the top

damn, the logo is familiar, I just can't remember the maker -- as I recall it's not a real expensive maker either -- searched like crazy but found none yet, but I'm sure somebody sharper than me will recognize it :p

That's a Vineyard soprano. I've got one just like it. :)

i played a soprano Vineyard at my local shop that had aquilas on it. i liked it, and I thought it was only $125...i might be a bit mistaken on the price, but I don't recall it costing that much.

For what it's worth, the information that I've gathered suggests that Vineyard, Ohana, and Bushman ukes are one and the same (http://chiyostrings.blogspot.com/2007/05/my-ukes-no-different-than-your-uke.html). They come from the same assembly lines. They're just badged differently.

oh the list price is 250, so yea im guessing the real price is around $125ish

Woah... From the first picture, I thought the logo was a nautilus. Does anyone else see that? HAHA
