    Anuenue, without the proper uppercase letters. There's a thread right now in the Marketplace.

    Orange ukuleles & chocolate covered oysters are in the same category as far as I'm concerned. However --- "To each his own," as the fellow said when he kissed his pet iguana on its teeny little lizard lips.

    Truly hideous. Looks like a 1970's formica kitchen work top. I'm sure it sounds good but an awful lot of ukuleles sound good these days so looks are important too. There is a market for east Asian boy band inspired instruments even in the west but a very, very small one I would think.

    Actually makes me wonder what a formica ukulele would sound like?

    There are cycles in these sorts of things.

    Some of us may not be the target demographic for 70s orange -- but among the more recent generations, the 'vintage' retro colours and styles from the 70s and 80s may appear pretty cool and desirable.

    I googled '70s orange' and my screen filled with colour swatches, 70s orange Ford Mustangs, vintage 70s orange thermos bottles, etc.

    I googled “70s orange” and my screen was filled with colour palettes and images such as this:

    And I can remember when that looked really cool

    For a while everything was that colour!

    Maybe it's just the wrong boy band? I bet a BTS ukulele would be unreasonably popular. Especially if it were cheap and marketed to young fans.

    Also, my understanding is that HPL is formica, more or less. So you could get your hands on an HPL Bonanza or Enya, or a Martin 0X and find out. I think all of those have been pretty well received. Especially the Martin.
