I know a few of use on the board have them, whats the general thoughts on them. Specifically I am looking at this one. Its my style, open headstock with rosewood and spruce just never held one.

I'm a big fan of William King ukes. Mine is a long scale spruce/koa tenor. I've wrote a few notes on my blog about it:

Review (http://gx9901ukes.blogspot.com/2009/01/fit-for-king.html)

Played along with 3 other tenors (http://gx9901ukes.blogspot.com/2009/01/me-and-4-tenors.html)

It's a great uke and judging from the soundfile MGM has on the one you're looking at, it seems pretty much at the same level.

I will say that my Kanile'a super tenor comes remarkably close to the King in terms of sound quality. People who are not into the spruce sound might actually prefer the Kanile'a.

I guess the best thing I can say about King ukes is that I've gone ahead and ordered another one.:smileybounce:

William builds a fantastic ukulele. Right at the top of the food chain along with a number of others.
