    Holy smokes is right..and it says it's sold 70! It looks like my kala I paid way less for and the Kala says for ukulele and it will tune my boys guitars and my daughters violin. For that price they should hand deliver

    Okay...I may be completely out of line here...but the only way I see that they sold 70 of those things at that price is if they're delivering crack with the tuner...

    This almost has to be a front for something because I checked some of the other items this seller moves. A lot of them are priced normally, but then there are many that are priced almost exactly $100 over what the item is actually worth (a bicycle spoke wrench, connectors, all kinds of crazy stuff) with lots of sales listed (16 bicycle spoke wrenches at over $100 each, etc.).

    Edit to add: I suspect a money laundering operation. Lots of small sales on relatively worthless things at highly inflated prices - I can't think of anything else it could be.

    I'm not entirely convinced that it is possible to polish a turd. However, if one were to accomplish that feat one would still have a turd, and one all the more noticeable for being shiny.

    Check out my ukulele-themed "stuff" at http://www.cafepress.com/fivebyfiveukulele - proceeds go to a good cause...UAS treatment!

    I don't get it? I have a cheap gogo tiki tuner that was cheap and I love. Don't get snarky The most I thought about spending was the KORG ukulele tuner for $30. I have no problem spending for quality stuff, but don't get what is special about that one. Feel better that no one else did either.

    You see weird stuff like this on Amazon as well, especially in the used books. I've seen books that retail new for $35 listed at ridiculous prices....like a copy of the Daily Ukulele, used in good condition for only $528.78.......plus $3.99 shipping!!
