Thread: Should I Get All These Ukes Or Just The One?

  1. #1

    Question Should I Get All These Ukes Or Just The One?

    Wellsir ... I have been wanting a electric solid body uke and I was looking at the Vorson S and V models. I was going to get both of them because one has the strat shape and the other has the straight line head stock. Then I found the Flight pathfinder which has both the shape and the headstock I like so I wouldn't need the Vorson.

    However they are all so popular would it be a good investment to get the Vorson models too. It will be a while before they are available so I have time to think about it. Thought?

    if by "investment" you mean "buy and then sell at a profit", I'd say no. if you mean "I want to have multiple solid bodies to have in different tunings (or whatever)", then I'd say "maybe". If you don't have a plan for the multiples, then I'd say wait for the Flight you like.

    What rush? None are available right now. If I am lucky the Flight may be available in May in the US. I have no idea when the Vorson will be available.

    I have a Clearwater (Vorson), & whilst it works OK, I'd go for the Flight, because it's got the looks that you want.

    I would keep my eyes peeled.

    Actually, I would save more and get a Risa, if electrics are your thing.

    New factory ukes are a very poor "investment"...I've lost a lot of money buying and selling ukes, even used ones.

    I also agree that lower priced ukes are not an investment, especially a Vorson, I had one and ultimately didn't have a use for a solid body electric steel string, so I sold it just a few weeks later for a loss, even listed as like new. Fanner Guitars out of South Africa makes customizable sold body steel string ukes for around $750, maybe check him out. https://www.etsy.com/shop/FannerGuitarWorks

    I'm definitely going to get the Flight, but I'm debating should I get the Vorson too since they are hard to find now too. If I don't like the Vorson and they go out of stock again, I should be able to sell them with no lost. If I do like them I can be one of those crazies with a lot of ukes.

    I know Risa makes good quality ukes, but they are too rich for my blood. Plus there don't have one that looks as good as the Flight uke even though they use better parts than Flight.
