    CF Mountain has quite the following and rave reviews at guitar forums.

    Many claimed the mountain guitars are better than the originals.

    $33 to $212.50 is quite a jump for a blatant copy. Vintage Martins have decreased to almost 2/3 their price from 2013. But the $212.50 is an asking price that could have no bering on reality.

    Very clever of the makers, but I doubt anyone would buy it thinking it's a Martin.
    Too many ukes, but I can't stop buying!

    Right! For $50 or less I would buy it just as a curiosity. It looks like there is a screw in the center of the bridge. I wonder if that was original - not a good idea for an imitation. Also, there doesn't seem to be washers under the tuning knobs.

    Probably the one who inspected the case.

    I have a Rolando banjo uke that's a hundred years old, and it has a previous owner's named carved into the body. I consider that a great feature.
