They are okay. I had the LU-21. It was an okay uke. The main fault was that it didn't have good intonation. For me, it's a bit closer to a toy than an good instrument.

But, if you are looking for an instrument a la cheap and under 50 bucks, it's as good as any in that price range- me thinks.


But... For that price range- I'd buy from MGM, as he switches out the strings and sets up the uke:

MGM's Ukes in that price range (http://stores.ebay.com/Musicguymics-Room_Brand-New-Ukuleles_Kala-Ukes_W0QQcolZ2QQdirZ1QQfsubZ7330323QQftidZ2QQtZkm)
