I purchased a nice acoustic ukulele two years ago in Hawaii. I wanted to amplify the instrument but was reluctant to use a 'stick-on' item as the ukulele was mahogany. I purchased the pick-up after watching the provided video. I am greatly pleased with it. It installs just as easily as shown, as long as you cause the strings to be VERY loose... and the sound through my Fender amp is great. Just one note, I don't expect any issues with the pickup... but it's not made to be beaten up. As the side of the box it came in states... Use care when installing and transporting the UK-1... and use care not to get tangled or step on the pickup cable (it's easy to do, if not careful, since the cable drops down in front of the ukulele... not from the bottom or behind like my guitars.).
