I'm sure it's their error, not yours, but it's ukulele (actually 'ukulele in Hawaiian). Uku means flea, lele means jump. When the Portuguese brought the Braguinha or Cavaquinho (ancestor of the 'ukulele) to Hawai'i, the hawaiians thought the instrument player's fingers looked like fleas jumping on the fretboard. 'Ukulele (yes that's the plural in Hawaiian) have had a resurgence of popularity of late. I've been playing one since 1971. Took lessons from one of the best, Herb Ohta, Sr. (Ohtan-San). This uke looks fun, but, I'm pretty sure it will sound junk. Want a good one? Get a Kamaka!
