    Great looking uke. The thing that caught my eye is the diamond on the headstock, which I believe is a trademark of Kamoa Ukulele company. Hope no one has problems over that . . .

    The Master, Herb Ohta Sr., often uses just thumb on G, C, and one finger on A and E, with some variance as needed. He seems to do pretty good with it . . . . ;)

    I have a concert MC-4 Islander that I have had a couple of years. It sounds great, easy to play, and holds up well. I think the best uke in its price range.
