    They have been waiting since Christmas for more! They come from overseas and they don't know when they will get more. He said they were very popular.

    Odd...does it say out of stock when you try and actually purchase? I was able to put one in my shopping cart.

    When you go to the cart, it does say "on backorder"

    So get a Risa or a Flight???.......but if the Vorson is what you want.....put your money in a safe place and when you see them available.....jump on it........I'd likely get the Risa or more likely the Flight....sure more money but it's the quality/cost/performance equation that is always hard to balance.

    Never heard of Risa or Flight ...what are they? Like the one I want? You have a link for them?

    Wellsir ... I did a search for the Risa of Flight ... they didn't have anything like the one I want plus they don't seem to sell them in the US and they are much more expensive.

    Mim (https://mimsukes.com) has a Risa in stock. Many times more expensive than the Vorson, and I wouldn't expect anybody to seriously cross-shop them. Mim carries Flight as well and will likely get the solid bodies in when she can.

    BazMaz has reviews of all three on https://gotaukulele.com
    You may need to search on Clearwater instead of Vorson - same thing, different name on each side of the pond.

    Spiritoo, have you checked American Music Supply?

    I have one, and have fun with it. I replaced the strings with the thickest four strings from a guitar, and tuned it DGBE like a baritone ukulele. Mine is fine, but some members here were not at all happy with theirs. Hence, the recommendations to spend more on a Risa.

    The gig bag is, honestly, a dust cover. The jack is cheaply made, but is easily replaced. The pickups are also cheap. I believe part of the fun of an electric guitar/ukulele is customizing it to your taste.

    That one shows, "Notify Me" which means they're not in stock.
