    No problem. I think all of us are excited about this one. I still can't decide if I want the TransAcoustic or not and this makes the choice even more difficult.

    I think the pickup looks cool... but...

    And this is just a personal opinion... dont shoot me

    I love the uke, but think I would only ever get one for outdoor / car / rough and tumble use. Pickups are cool and the transacoustic particlularly so.. but.. I dont see me ever amplifying any plastic uke like that. If I want to record or perform I'd go for a more traditional uke. In that sense I'm glad they DIDN'T send me an electro model as i think it would have confused my personal views.

    As I say - that's just me.

    Just got my Nova Uke in the mail, and been playing around with it here and there this afternoon. I also have a low G tenor Outdoor Ukulele. I like the Nova, but I do still prefer the sound and feel of my Outdoor Ukulele. I feel like my tenor Outdoor in low G and a fuller sound, and definitely prefer the fretboard on the Outdoor Ukulele as well. The fretboard on the Nova (at least the one I received) seems to be grittier/rougher than the outdoor, which is mostly noticeable when doing bends. I prefer the neck profile on the Outdoor Ukulele as well with the wider and flatter back on the neck, which makes it extremely comfortable to move up and down. Overall, for the price, it's hard to beat the Nova, but as an overall, I prefer the Outdoor Ukulele. This is after a very small amount of play on the Nova, but just some things that I noticed shortly after unboxing.

    I just looked at this thread after following a link to the Enya Carbon in another thread. I'd buy a white one in an instant if it was a tenor (and replace the gold hardware with black). I like the idea of a preamp, but I have a Godin Multiuke when I need to play amplified. The Enya would replace my Fluke walnut tenor (I don't like the shape of the neck, my thumb gets fatigued quickly compared to my other ukes).

    I picked up mine via Amazon Canada recently. $110CAD ($83USD) with a coupon, but free fast shipping and no customs/dutios - probably not as cheap as available in that original promo, but still not bad.

    I just got two more (pink and blue acoustic) for grandkids. I think at $79 it is a very good value.
