    wow, ziva is asking £259 for a lazy ukulele with a paint job, now i’m not saying that the paint job isn’t of a good quality and while it’s not to my tastes charging £259 for a lazy ukulele is criminal regardless of how it’# been painted.
    My first uke was a lazy uke and it was £12 brand new and i’d struggle to find a poorer ukulele if i was really trying.
    I seriously hope someone doesn’t get their hopes up about that, also it describes it as mahogany which is blatantly obvious from the photos it’s really not.
    That seems a little dodgy to me.

    cbf: Yeah, I’m not going to be buying one any time soon either.

    It may be wishful thinking… but I’m seeing the lazys listed at £39!!!

Got something to say?
