My girlfriend made me wait til fathers day to get to order it, I settled for a Makala mk-sd in metallic blue... it came in Friday and been strumming on it all week. Just found out last night that its actually a molded body with a wood top, but I still love it and figured it would be a good choice for a beginner..

Congrats on the new uke. In case you haven't found it, chordie.com is a great site for songs. You can change the diagrams to the uke under tuning and transpose up or down to get to a key you like

I didn't get such a good one. Mine is very fragile, but, it looks really nice.
