Product Review (submitted on September 23, 2016):
I'm very new to the Ukulele, so can only tell you how much I love my little Zirikote Cancert Ukulele. To be honest, price wasn't a deciding factor, what drew me to this one was the amazing grain. I've had mine now for about 4 months, and like a previous poster, I travel extensively, and take this little gem with me everywhere. Initially I had to tune her often, but the strings stretched and now hold their tune. The sound is amazing, and it has taken the place my travel Gibson Mandolin on all my trips now.
Once I feel that I am playing decent, I will probably move up to a solid koa model . . . just because I'm like that. But I can tell you, this one is just awesome sounding and looking.
