Unkulele Thinline LP

A Handmade Import from the USA!

I've looked at Unkulele a couple of times over the years, I've always thought they looked interesting and fun if not spectacularly beautiful, and I was interested to see how well the electrics work as they are a special inductance pickup not the standard type? Then he started putting this Tenor up on ebay at a fairly reduced starting price, and since no one else bid I won. Now it lives at Ukulele Corner

The electrics work very well, they do give a very good rendering of how the Ukulele sounds acoustically. And surprisingly this Ukulele works very well acoustically, it has much more volume than I was expecting and a good clear tone, (though not a lot of bass). The build quality is a bit "artisan" but I was expecting that its how they all look on the website (and it say they are too!), but it all looks well put together and robust. I don't think I will have any delicate flower type issues; though it smells of varnish not any fragrant wood. The only build issues I can see are the action is a bit high, (but I can fix that though it does have an interesting bridge and saddle arrangement) and the fret spacing is a bit uneven right at the top end by the body, (but I never play up there so this probably won't matter?)

What this is, is a very distinctive beater Ukulele that I could take to any gig, no matter how rough , it will perform beautifully through an amp, it won't fall apart on me and its not the end of the world if I do have to use it to defend myself, (and I've done plenty of gigs I needed all of that).
