    Default I'm Hopeless

    You'd think someone who had a hundred ukuleles would be satisfied. But no. A friend sent me a link to a banjo uke selling for $35. This was one of those typical Chinese deals that includes everything - even a pickup!

    At first, I didn't take it seriously because of the low price. Then someone here kindly pointed out that the same thing is selling for $125 on eBay. My friend bought one, and I did, too.

    How bad can it be, right? I'll let you know when it arrives.

    I'm not going to try to add a link to eBay. I tried that through an edit yesterday, and I couldn't post for hours. Look for a Vangoa banjo uke on eBay.

    don't search by vangoa, just search banjo ukulele or banjolele, and you will see the same thing using the same pictures for 70.23 and up

    Are you suggesting that I buy that one, too? Someone else in our group ordered one for $35. We can form the "Vango Trio."

    I'll be interested to hear if you get this. When I see prices that much lower than expected I think scam. I ordered a similarly priced (maybe lower? $17?) bass a year or so ago with appropriate expectations. Unfortunately my expectations were met and eBay was easy to reverse the charge when it was shown as "delivered" with tracking that went to the wrong side of the country

    nope. but you said the same thing is selling on ebay for $125. it's actually selling for ~70 if you don't search by the brand name. I mentioned that price and brought up the brand name earlier in your thread from yesterday on this same product. based on what you wrote to start this one, it's not entirely clear whether you bought the $35 deal or $125 ebay uke

    I bought a side kick for $ 100.00. Not sure if this is the same or what. I can see in this case you get what you pay for....If your careful.
