Nice gigging uke - if you can get one free from manufacturing faults

When I received my uke, it was apparent that there was some damage to the second fret that had been clumsily repaired, presumably in the factory. The result was a buzzy instrument that had to be returned. The replacement arrived, and it was also very buzzy, to the point of being unusable, so the REPLACEMENT had to be replaced (despite my having requested that Thomann inspect the instrument before shipping). At this point I firmly insisted that Thomann have a luthier inspect the next replacement, which they did. The action on this one must also have been less than optimal, as the saddle had been raised by inserting a 1mm shim under it. I am shocked at such poor workmanship from Ibanez.

The instrument I have now is fine for playing (although the action isn't quite as low as I'd have liked). It has a built in chromatic tuner, which is incredibly useful onstage. The pickup sounds great through a PA, much better than I would have expected. Acoustically, the instrument is a little dull, partly due to the heavy layers of lacquer on the laminate body. I had planned to sell my old Lanakai LU-21c to part-fund this Ibanez, but I've held on to it as it's much better for recording with.
Although I ultimately received an adequate instrument for gigging with, I cannot recommend anybody else buy one of these, because of the terrible quality control out of the factory, which left me without a ukelele in my live setup for 6 weeks or so. The Lanakai LU-21c is a superior instrument in every sense (I have one), and the semi-acoustic version is cheaper than this Ibanez.

very nice

visually, i think it's a piece of art. the pattern of the wood was a nice surprise. i will give the fifth star as soon as i optimize my technique. the tuner feaure is perfect and i have very good imprression from the amplified sound. unumplified sound is ok. nothing odd to say, at all. perfect for its price.
