I am 100% an unashamed fanboy of Magic Fluke and everything they do. I love their ukes so much that I own many of them personally. There is something magical to the simple yet elegant design, plus the fact that the company’s owner Jim Beloff was an integral part of the ukulele’s comeback.
The solid top series really do take things up a notch. The koa on this one is seriously stunning and it does sound more resonant and vibrant than it’s laminate cousins. The hardwood fretboard, which is set up with a nice low action, is an absolute joy to play.
I was so tempted to take this home as well but that wouldn’t be fair!
