Sorry, had to. :o Being the great lover of Fleas that I am, I was thrilled to see Mike at Uke Republic has the Tiki King surf Flea, and the Firefly banjo uke too!
Yay Mike!

I was at Mike's store this past weekend and played the Firefly banjo uke..... it's a great little instrument for the money. I've played several different banjo ukuleles and haven't been too thrilled with any of them, but these were great - he had two hanging on the wall and I tried em both. Not as brassy or loud as other banjoleles, but a nice full tone, good intonation, and very playable. First time I've every strummed a banjo uke and thought I might want one.....

I tried to resist the Fleas just carrying Mr Jim Beloff's books and DVDs and then one fine day, KAPOW!!! We had to have em in the store. They are a cool instrument for sure. The banjoleles are lighter in weight compared to many which is a plus for many. One other cool thing they are doing is making their necks and wood fingerboards from timber that is native to the USA like maple, walnut and cherry.
