A very good starting ukulele with a beautiful sound. Doesn't get out of tune quickly, but needs adjustments when you first get it. Came with a thin bag to keep it in. Overall, I'm in love with it. It's a pretty instrument with a sweet sound, and the strings don't hurt your fingers as much as a guitar would. I'm just starting to learn but it's pretty amazing--very excited. The quality of this thing is awesome. Built really well and the wood and design are beautiful.
