Seems a bit pricey to me. Anyone have any history on Hofner ukes? Seems I read they were made in the early-mid 1960s.

Looks like a Brüko #5.

A quick Google seems to support that Brüko did OEM manufacturing for Höfner and others.

Price for a new Brüko of this type is about $165.

Heard that Brüko continues those Hofners, but I'm not sure.

The ad basically says it was made by Brüko, just under a different label.
