My daughter needed a ukulele for music class at school, so I ordered a soprano Flea for her and, while I was at it, a concert Fluke for me - natural finish, no fancy options. Both are superb instruments. Intonation, action, fit and finish... everything is perfect.
The smaller body of the Flea suits my daughter well, but I enjoy the bigger, more resonant tone of the Fluke - the difference is definitely noticeable. I have put some Worth strings on the Fluke (clear, hard, low-g) and they sound absolutely fantastic. The only bad thing I have to say about the Fluke is that now my Firefly isn't getting all the attention it used to. 8^)

I got my fluke for Christmas, (thanks Al and Margaret), and I can honestly say I've gotten more pleasure out of it than any other gift I can remember. I play everyday. I carry it around like a weird Uke nerd. Mine is the walnut rosette design. It is gorgeous, and I get so many compliments on it. After about two weeks, the strings finally stretched out and it stays in tune throughout all kinds of playing, travel, and weather. Thank you MFC gang. I'm already dreaming of my next one!!
