It's a violin-SHAPED ukulele. It's a ukulele with a weird shape to it.
But I think it's neat. I wanted one the first time I saw a picture/painting of one
on the cover of Roy Sakuma's Chord book.
Then I found out that one had been crafted for one of the Hawaiian Kings and
was on display (sometimes) at the Bishop Museum in Honolulu.
Then I discovered that Tangi Ukuleles had several models for sale. I bought one
from Tangi personally when I was in Honolulu a few years back. It's soprano-size
but Concert-scale. PERFECT for me. And it fit into a soprano case as well!
About the only complaint I have is that the sharp/pointy mid-sections dig into
my mid-section! It's not that bad, but I can feel it.
I hope that answers your inquiry.
