Hooray, new uke day!

My new ukulele has arrived a Bruko no.5 soprano and first impressions are really good.

Solid mahogany body with maple neck, the fit and finish are excellent. Intonation is great and it has a lovely bright sound. It is strung with pyramid fluorocarbon strings and despite reading some bad press on these strings they sound pretty good to me.

My only slight gripe is that the action is perhaps a touch high around the 12th fret but not at an unplayable or uncomfortable level.

If the intonation is okay, I don't think a slightly high action matters much on a soprano. My Bruko is a little high on the bridge end too, that's just how they come. Plays nicely, though.
