    Looks great, but love to hear it though...

    ...to save others time converting GBP to USD (via http://xe.com) gives us a USA price of ~$285 not including shipping.

    Are there any reviews or sound samples of these?

    Brian May Guitars own website has (only) excellent reviews of this uke, whereas an article from Acoustic Magazine on musicradar.com notes buzzing and intonation issues.

    Is there anyone here who could report their own personal experience with this uke?

    Somewhat overpriced for an all laminate uke, I think - but no doubt 'collectors' will buy them because it has his 'signature' on it.

    Too bad spruce top isn’t solid. I’d get rid of built in electronics and off are different, lighter add on option. Looks cool. Wonder how it sounds. I’d like yo see Grover open back on it.

    Found a couple of samples... for good or ill:

    “We Are The Champions” chords played on Brian Mays uke:

    Mainly just “unboxing,” and a tiny bit of acoustic and electric demo:

    Would still like to hear from someone who's had personal experience with one of these..
