I don't think they're any better than a Grizzly kit - they may even be the same thing. Quite a bit more expensive.

Check Grizzly kits out HERE. (http://grizzly.com/products/H3125)

Definitely a Grizzly kit- they come in the blue box. And at 2x the price...for shame Ebay

Hmm, they don't say anything about what it's made of, etc. Sounds like you could end up buying a kit for a uke that, when finished, would be lower quality than a cheaper lanikai or dolphin...

Are those grizzly kits Laminates? Just says Mohagany and I usually know what that means but thought just maybe....

Looks like the "Grizzly" kit. It is a laminated bodied uke and not a bad kit. There is a company that custom-paints and finishes these ukes and sells them as custom-finished sopranos. They do a good job over-all, but, they sell at inflated prices.

Well...it's not eBay's fault - they don't set the price, the seller does.
