    Ooh very nice. Want one. I confirmed with them that it's the same neck profile as the normal Fluke (some love them / some not so much - I
    personally find them comfy)

    I can resist this one. I'm not that eager to amplify and let the world hear my playing. : )

    Typo? "...60 second charge is good for 20 hours of play." I could understand a 60 minute charge, but just one minute?
    Too many ukes, but I can't stop buying!

    Yes! I saw the MiSi in action. It's fantastic! Plug it in for one minute, and you're good to go.

    I'm interested in a tenor Fluke solid body. Not sure how I'd like the neck profile. I played a concert Flea with plastic fretboard not too long ago and wasn't all that impressed, but the action was high, and there were no grip strips on the back.

    Yep. MiSi is great. I have two ukuleles with this pick-up. I hardest thing for me is keeping track of now long I've been playing & when to recharge. I just plug in every other month or so for 60 seconds on the uke I play every Sunday in church & carry the charger with me just in case. No batteries to change.....awesome.

    I wonder if Elon Musk knows about this.

    That does look nice. But why the heck did they put the output jack on the bottom? Right where it will stick out if you try to play while seated? Right next to the endpin would have been SO much better. (IMNSHO)

    Good question. The combo jack/pin arrangement makes more sense to me as well, but I have two other ukes with the "on the bottom" configuration- the Ohana TKS-15E and the Imua shown here: https://forum.ukuleleunderground.com...NTMUD-Imua-iET

    So it is a fairly common design

    ETA: make that 3 - Konablaster is also on the bottom - https://forum.ukuleleunderground.com...Scale-Baritone

    Well I don't care how common it is - it's still a darn inconvenient place to put it!
