This is one of Mahalo's 2018 "specials", it's part of the new creative series that have come out along with the latest art series and a new designer series. The Alien is the only new model to have a distinctly non traditional body shape, (there is another "skull" one that is a standard Ukulele body shape but put on the wrong way around, so the neck connects to the larger bout ), and though it comes in 4 colours, this is the only fluorescent one. You have to leave it under the lights for a bit before it glows (and turn the lights out once it is "charged"). Not glowing it is off white under normal lights and it plays nicely enough but it does miss a proper fretboard; as it comes, it is just some "ebonising" on the neck. OK its a reasonable job but it does look cheap and will probably wear through after a bit of use. Speaking of cheap, the whole thing looks a little cheap, well more feels than looks, the finish is a little rough and uneven. However it plays nicely enough and what did I expect for the money? It is what it is, a bit of fun and...
It Glows!
The soundboard glows, the headstock glows even the back and sides glow!
