**I buy blemished on purpose because sometimes you want a nicer instrument for a cheaper price. And if you don't mind a little cosmetic blemish here or there it is a great way to get a great deal!
This one has a lovely grain on the back, but unfortunately there are a couple spots around the edges where you can see the base layer of the laminate. It is finished over and smooth. I took a close up picture so make sure it does not bother you before ordering, but it will save you some money! So if you want to save some money and don't mine a little imperfection that makes you ukulele unique this is a great way to get a great deal! Blemishes in no way effect the structure and playability of the ukulele and it still gets the same great setup!**
A great first uke! Or, heck, a great uke for your collection! It is a great bang for your buck. You get form and function. The solid spruce top gives it a nice, loud, resonant, punchy, and bold sound. The laminate zebrawood back and sides brings in some lower tones as well as stability and looks! It makes a great starter uke and a great travel uke. Has a great sound, is a good player, and of course will be set up with care for nice playability and a good tone! You wont have to "baby" it as much with the laminate back and sides, but the solid top is where most of the tone comes from on a uke and you will be very pleased with the boldness that this little ukulele packs!
Even the affordably priced Ohanas are made with really great frets and really great tuners! So you are getting a quality instrument at an affordable price! Every uke gets my personal attention and this one will be set up with comfortable buzz free action. Great playability and easy on the fingers.
