This is such a cool ukulele! The very idea of taking a Les Paul guitar ethos, Gibson's most venerated design ever, and applying it to a ukulele...well, to be frank it's ludicrous, but in a very fun way! I'm glad to see a ukulele with a cutaway, a uke with a AAA flame maple top, and a uke with a good sunburst finish. One doesn't typically find these kinds of appointments on a ukulele, but this one has all of them. It plays very smoothly, with no extra effort to fret each string.


This is a decent-sounding ukulele, but I've heard better, to be honest. Lanakai and Cordoba are a couple of modern brands that I've tried around this price point, and I liked their sound better. The cutaway is a cool feature for playability, but I think the smaller body shape as a result tones down the volume one can achieve with this. Also, the built in piezo pickup is very quacky sounding - it reminds me of the piezo system sound from early 90s guitars - that is to say, unrealistic and plinky sounding.


Overall, this isn't bad. This is a like a main practice uke, or a ukulele gift for a person who has a Les Paul as their primary instrument. I wouldn't use it for a real "serious" singer-songwriter or folk gig. It is a touch gimmicky, but it will put a smile on anyone's face. But it's certainly worth a look, for sure.
