It's a cute smiley face and who can resist to own one of this? The U/SMILE feature is so explicit that it is written directly on the face -- a big Smile on the top which makes me truly happy. The body, fingerboard and bridge are constructed with choice maple, producing a bright tone that is ideal for a soprano. The geared dolphin style machine heads offer smooth and accurate tuning. The Nubone saddle made in Canada reveals the esteem value of this quality ukulele.
