    Zero fret - don't care for the look, but some uke designs benefit from them.

    Cool. I had an Enya HPL uke which I ended up returning, but it was finished really well, smooth fret ends, good intonation, etc. There was a lot to like about it.

    Here's another angle: if for some reason, you don't bond with the Martin, are you going to be okay with one in, two out? If not, maybe wait to sell the Lanikai until you know you like the Martin.
