I'm new too Ukeleles so I'm still finding my way around these miniature instruments. That being said, this little signature model worked as advertised. Without plugging it into an amp, it has a very tiny voice compared to my other somewhat more robust Kala Uke. Once plugged in, it sounds great. The onboard Fishman EQ is very effective and also provides an onboard tuner. She stays in in tune nicely. My one criticism is the diminutive frets. They are on the smallish side. Takes some getting used to. Slender fingers will work much better. The case that is provided is well made and stylish looking.
