You can read my review on that web site under the mahogany soprano. The owner offers a $15.00 PayPal discount so the price will come in very close to your budget.
    I agree with this recommendation, I bought one of these a couple of years ago when they were marketed under the Melokia brand and it's been one of my favorites since the day I got it. Nice build and good set up, and I'm glad to see they come with Worths as I've found them to be the best fit for this uke. A very nice uke for the money, and the gigbag mine came with was a pretty good one too, but I keep mine in a hard case with a humidifier since I'm in the high desert.

    I have a KPK Tenor and really love it. Am thinking of perhaps getting a KPK concert, or a Gretsch concert (solid mahogany). My husband's Gretsch is a dream to play. I am wanting a solid mahogany uke. I've read some good reviews on Cordoba and OS ukes. I was researching OS ukes when I landed on the Gretsch roots line.
