Hai guys.

I have no idea where to put this. I guess its kind of an acoustic? Im not around that forum much though, so I figured I would put it here.

Im looking to get a cheap ukulele just to play around with and have a little fun with.

I would perfer to buy one new because this would be my first. If I play to get serious about this, I will buy a nicer new one.

So what do you guys recommend? Im willing to spend about 50 bucks.

I understand those are all pretty cheaply made and have poorish sound, but Im looking for the best of them.

Thanks guys!

EDIT: Pretty much the first 4 are ones that Im thinking about.

I've been looking at Ukes as well lately. A friend of mine just picked this up, and she loves it...

Sounds great from what I've heard. Haven't had the chance to try it out yet...

Branding!?!? THAT'S TOO PROGRESSIVE! I say bring back settlement payments in weights of lead and impalement upon wooden stakes!

I was playing an Ibanez one in the store the other week that was only $40 and it seemed decent quality in comparison to the other more expensive ones($80-$120) and sounded fine. I want to get one myself cause they're fun as hell and easy to play.

This is mine. It r00lz.


Yeah, for 50, you won't get much. Expect shoddy craftsmanship and suspicious looking tuners. But the instrument will be playable and that's pretty much all that matters, I guess.
