    Pepe Romero showing his Romero Creations line. They are now making a special order "Model X" line with upgraded figured Hawaiian Koa and Gotoh Planetary tuners. He also explains that his steel string mini guitars come with his typical reversed fan bracing instead of an X bracing. Then there is an all laminate version of the ST Concert for $169 USD.

    Hmmmm........so this is really more like the carbon Outdoor Ukulele, not the Klos. And I wonder what exactly is meant by an "HPL" neck"? Though whatever it is, it does appear to have metal frets, which is good. Hate the silly case, and their weird single strap button system. And I would think you'd have a hard time finding a big bag to fit that unconventional shape. But I love the colors, and it does look like fun.

    A few looks at Uma, Flight, and that Argentinian "Bamboo Ukulele" brand that mentioned above that doesn't really make ukes out of Bamboo. Lots of colors and graphics here as well. Uma has expanded their fan fretted models:

    You kind have to look the other way. I can guarantee you that when I was 10 years old, I would have picked one of these Fenders over a Kamaka any day of the week, no matter how meh they sound. They know their market and it's not us.
