This ukulele is quite nice looking, though you do notice a few things that show how they could price it at such a low price (glue/ wood shavings inside and some things like that.) having said that though, I have enjoyed it. It isn't the best sounding of my ukuleles, but it definitely the most portable. It's just the right size to take on trips with friends or to church. And it seems daily durable. My friend dropped a tin (not extremely heavy, but more than you would want to drop on an instrument) directly onto it by accident and it got a few dents (which made my heart sink) but other than that it's fine.
