Wow! 4 pickups and steel strings. That thing is going to rock. It has all the features. I just can't bring myself to go totally electric though.

Is it a really an official Gibson Les Paul sanctioned uke? Don't see that on the headstock. Just curious.

I get the impression that the Risa Soprano LP has a concert scale.... 19 frets?

I have current custody of Sam's tenor Risa LP "Marisa", she is a honey, and they are beautifully built.

I think it's an electric uke in the style of the Gibson Les Paul. I can't imagine that Risa asked Gibson. Maybe that's why they only call it LP.
I'm quite satisfied with my tenor Mahagony.

I would love to have one of these in a tenor. If someone gave it to me. Like for my birthday (hint, hint).

I just can't seem to convince myself they are worth what they sell for. For a few hundred more, you can have a sho' 'nuff Gibson! Granted, it wouldn't have the same "cute factor".

Maybe one day I will run across a used one at a reasonable price?
