    Default New Ukuelele

    I've been playing an inexpensive laminate ukulele from Amazon. As a graduation gift to myself, I bought a better ukulele. After much deliberation I chose a Magic Fluke Fluke in tenor scale. After waiting 3 weeks it arrived this weekend. It plays great, and looks good doing it.

    Congrats! A Honu model! My concert flea is probably my most played due to it standing tall on my desk at work!

    Enjoy, my concert Fluke was my first uke. I'm getting ready to play it after doing the dishes once I get off the computer. I've got pick some songs to take to work tomorrow as I may have a change to play a little bit there.....

    Despite all the praise Magic Fluke ukes get here, I think they're still somewhat underrated. Great choice.

    Very nice. I have a concert the same color, but without the graphics.
    Too many ukes, but I can't stop buying!

    Magic Fluke is one that has yet to added to my collection. In fact, I've never played one. I'm glad you like it. I'll give one a try sooner or later!

    If you get one, I recommend getting the wooden fretboard. It costs more, but I think it's worth it. I don't know why they continue to use the molded boards. Although the wooden fretboard with metal frets is very nice, you're paying $70 for a fretboard! I had them switch over two of mine, and I converted one myself, using a ready-made fretboard from Amazon. Their fretboards have different fret spacing, so using a regular one requires relocating the bridge.
