This baritone is simple but well made for the money. The sound is woody with a really nice midrange. I might have just lucked out tho. I tried almost every Uke they had. I am a seasoned guitarist, and needed a different flavor for specific recordings. I like that I can just capo it at the 5th fret to get Concert/tenor Uke tones and playability. If you are looking for a small Uke this might be a little big for you.
