I’d get it if it was a baritone uke

I'd been looking at the Fender Fullerton Ukes (there are strat and tele versions too) before buying a uke recently but ultimately decided against it because they cost $200. It's a ukelele.
Fender can be dicks about them if they need to; not too long ago they gave Grace Vanderwaal a signature Fender Venice concert uke supplemented with a Fishman piezo/preamp scheme, but then when they gave Billie Eilish a signature uke they just took that one, put some pattern off her asshole tracksuit on it and charged an extra hundred. They're still selling both concurrently and hoping nobody notices.

I bought an all-plastic Kala Waterman which is pretty cool, a sort of homage to the old Maccaferri Islanders.

Aren't Ukes just the instrument version of Fidget Spinners doh?

$200 isn't terrible for a good uke... I'm not convinced Fender makes good ukes (specific models aside) Wink

Last time I thought about spending $200 on a uke it was one of these things

https://www.musiciansfriend.com/folk-traditional-instruments/epiphone-hummingbird-uke/l44214000001000?cntry=US&cur=USD&source=3WWRWXGS&gclid=CjwKCAiAmrOBBhA0EiwArn3mfJx2HcCmVJGB0je0yYQx79gLmMXr3eUjgp89aoTQN6s2T4c7qv6tgBoCXIEQAvD_BwE

Saw one in Alto Music, it played and sounded very nice, but tbh looking at this thing again it’s quite corny, as is the Fender

My Dad really got into ukulele about 5 years ago after a lifetime of playing guitar. He joined a uke group and they have done loads of gigs (pre-COVID). He’s now got 3, including a baritone, and 2 of them are really nice (bought once he knew he was into it). I think probably in the £350 range, but I certainly wouldn’t pay for one of those Fender ones.

We use a fretless uke bass on acoustic gigs so its 2 acoustic guitars, the uke bass and all 3 of us singing. Love the sound of the uke bass (and need to grab out my actual uke and get up to speed on it)
