    Yes, of course it can and I make that point in many reviews.

    However.. what am I supposed to do? Ignore those issues on the basis that someone else may have a good example?

    I'm not suggesting that at all. Just adding my own experience alongside yours for the benefit of others.

    Some might say that favorable reviews are slanted because the reviewer gets "pick of the litter" instruments. Others might say that less favorable reviews are slanted because the reviewer got an "unlucky-bad" instrument.

    Confucious say: People like reviews that support their own opinions, and dislike reviews that run contrary to their own opinions. Kung hee fat choy, I am very wise boy!

    What I try to do with the 'unlucky bad' ones i get is distinguish between the issues that are fixable and those that are less so.

    I tend not to get too fazed by an instrument arriving with high action, or even sharp frets because they can be fixed easily. I do get more concerned by badly set bridges, bridges in the wrong place and that kind of thing.

    Both are examples of poor quality control of course.

    Hi Barry, two points:

    I'm curious at your description of the sound hole design of these ukes as a "vine / oak leaf ". I always thought it was a fish. I don't see the leave there.

    Second, there are a number of Chinese ukes with this same model. A couple of years ago I bought one from Caramel because they said it was solid rosewood. For what I can see through the several mini sound holes, it is solid wood, rather thick, but solid. I say this, just to add to the piece that you could get a solid wood one.

    Thanks for your reviews

    Eugenio

    The original concept was indeed leaves. Loook close at these and you see they ARE indeed leaves. Paisen have also contacted me since and referred to them as leaves.

    And yes - there are actually LOADS of others (My count got to at least 8) that use similar designs. Paisen said my comment that it was prevalent was 'unfair'.... I beg to differ.
