Is there supposed to be a link? Anyway, OS ukuleles can be found here (http://www.oscarschmidt.com/products/ukes/) and you can point it out to us. I haven't played one so I really can't make a comparison or voice an opinion. BTW, is this your first uke? If so, you should check out Beginners Forum and see what other new members are buying as their first uke.

I think he means this one, Danny.

The prevailing opinion on Oscar Schmidt ukuleles are negative. If you're looking to buy a uke for $200 or under, take a look at Flukes/Fleas, Kalas, Lanikais, or Ohanas. And buy it from musicguymic on eBay.

I totally agree with seeso, for the price, you can get a better instrument (Kala, Pono, Ohana) from MGM (http://stores.ebay.com/Musicguymics-Room_Brand-New-Ukuleles_Tangi-Ukes_W0QQcolZ2QQdirZQ2d1QQfsubZ7330330QQftidZ2QQtZ km).
