I was wondering if anybody could tell me what type of ukulele I have. Just because I'm curious. :)

At a guess, I would say a Mahalo, or similar make. As for the type, i'd say it's a Soprano Ukulele.

It looks kind of like my friends cheap tourist uke that he got in Hawaii.

It's green..... :)

Other than that it is hard to say without seeing the headstock or label. But the other replies seem to be in the right ballpark, an entry or tourist level soprano of some type.

I zoomed into the headstock as much as I could. The name starts with a K, so it's not a Mahalo. Green Soprano is all I can say.

I'm going to guess it is a green KeAloha Soprano:

I don't think they make the colored ones in other sizes

One letter near and you had a KoAloha... Never heard of Kealoha before...

The KeAloha looks correct, based on the color and the faux bridge pins....why are there only two?? :)

Welcome to the forum. It is a nice instrument and you should be proud. The colour of the ebay item mentioned looks like it came from the same place as my inexpensive Mahalo which gives me much pleasure. And that is more important than anything else.

yes sorry I forgot to mention; my ukulele brand is KeAloha! I'm guessing its some kind of Australian brand because that's where I got it from :) thank you for all your answers! So from what I've been told its a soprano. And to be completely honest with you I have no idea what bridge pins are because I'm a total beginner haha! but yes my ukulele is green! I've always wanted a green one. Again, thank you for all the answers! I appreciate it!

Those aren't bridge pins, I think they're covering screws where the bridge is screwed on. Either that or they are dowels that go through the bridge and top for reinforcement, though I'm betting on screws.

Yep, I could see the bridge is a tie one, it just look odd enough to me to comment on. :)

My first uke was a green Mahalo. Mahalo means "thank you" in Hawaiian. I also think it might mean "gate-way drug" :)
