Welcome to UU, glad you joined us.

I haven't seen that brand (but I'm in the US). Personally I would look to a reputable dealer like Southern Ukulele Store in the UK http://www.southernukulelestore.co.uk/ before buying on ebay

They will look it over and you are more likely to get good service if anything is wrong

PS. That Ohana CK-10S is a very good uke for the price

Good luck and keep us posted

"Looks" nice for the money, but what qualifies as "nice" to you? Still a beginner's level instrument (nothing wrong with that if you like it though)I agree with checking out Southernukulele's for a uke with a "proper setup." Good prices and good service from what I here on UU

SUS gets good words on here - but I used 'Clifford Essex' for my Aria concert (and a few bits and pieces since then) and I can't fault their service - in fact, it's probably the single best company I've ever dealt with. They do a full setup on the ukes they sell, which is a big plus.

I did a lot of research before buying my Aria (it was my second uke - the first being my Mahalo soprano, bought for me as a Christmas gift), but I also bought 'on spec' off the internet (my tenor and my Les Paul), but by then, I was comfortable enough to do my own setups (not that hard if do your research).

Anyway - welcome to UU :D

Cheers for the input! Is this a mainly usa forum? I've decided to purchase one of these, seemed a good price for a mahogany uke, I'll let you know how it is!
