Intonation on higher frets is terrible!
Grey Karma, 05.02.2019
Use: I bought this as a cheap extra tenor uke.

Clarity: The body provides a good clear sound with plenty of volume when played acoustically. It has a bright rather than fat sound which I am ok with as it is a budget instrument. What I'm not ok with is an instrument that sounds so out of tune on the higher frets that I can't bare to play it any more.

Pros & Cons: This is a good instrument in terms of the price as it has a pickup with built in tuner. Personally, I wouldn't have any use for such a basic tuner (buy yourself a good clip on tuner instead) and would prefer if more attention was given to the intonation & fret placement as well as the action of the strings which is a little on the high side for comfortable strumming. This wood finish is really nice and feels very natural and much better than the finish on my over priced Luna High Tide which I will be reviewing soon!

Conclusion: If you are a beginner then this instrument is suitable in terms of budget, body size and the ability to plug it in to an amp or record yourself. I bought a Ritter padded gig bag for ¤29 to go with it. This case is excellent!
If the string action and intonation problems were addressed on this instrument then I would like to try out the upgraded version even if that meant a price increase.

Excellent
udiwudi, 17.10.2020
Used by my daughter for learning and by me for recording. Have had it now for a month. In short - an excellent instrument.
Pros:
- Clear "ukulele" sound, even with the originally shipped strings.
- The bigger size and the cutout shape of this tenor ukelele enable all styles of playing - soloing, struming, finger picking etc.
- Stays in tune surprisingly well after only a few days.
- The pickup sounds great.
- The inbuilt tuner works well.
- Played well out of the box, has good action, all frets are in tune (even 12th fret and beyond), there wasn't any need for any additional setup.

Cons:
- The build looks a little cheap from up close, but from a distance - looks surprisingly good.
- For recording - will sound better miked by a condenser as opposed to using the pickup, but that may be only a personal preference.

Summary - great for all uses and for the price is incredible.

Brilliant Value
daithí, 15.11.2017
An amazing ukulele for this price. Sounds excellent - nice rich tones. Well built and finished. The Fishman pick up is everything you would expect and the built in tuner is very useful. It also looks amazing!
I can't leave it out of my hands!!

Money Well Spent
Raymond588, 20.03.2017
This to me was the bargain of the year. I expected a good ukulele when I bought it, but did not expect such fantastic quality for such a low price. With its electro pickup, sounding great in any amplifier, it was in the price range of an acoustic only uke. I like the Tenor size. It is far easier to play than the smaller ones and has a deeper sounding quality. I've had this for well over a year now and the battery still has not run out. One little tip though. Make sure you switch off the tuner before you begin playing through an amp, as it cuts off all sound while it is tuning. This happened to me and I even fitted new batteries before I realised my mistake.
Terrific value for money and fitted with the best quality Aquila strings.
