Saw this on the Goodwill website the other day. It looks sort of like a lute. Anyone know what this one might be or who made it?

looks like a weird bodied uke. But with a 16 dollar price point and the word miniature I doubt that it is playable.

I have no idea why the word "miniature" is thrown into the description. The length measurement is 21"...which is basically soprano size. There are some cracks, chips, etc. I can't say that I'm really that interested in buying it, just never seen one like it.

It looks like a knockoff of a Favilla Teardrop (http://www.ukulelecorner.org.uk/home/might-come/soprano/favilla-teardrop) - which is a sweet little uke! I'd pass on the $16 one and hold out for the real thing.

Awesome! That looks exactly like it. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.
