Lanikai LU-21 and Lanikai LU-21P

So, I've been pretty intrigued with the Lanikai LU-21 as one of the better choices for a starter ukulele.  Heck, even at $70 it seemed like a good deal but the price is just getting cheaper and cheaper.  So, I went looking for reviews and I found this great Youtube review of the LU-21.

Pretty thorough!  Well, if you do want to get your hands on this ukulele, here are 3 different methods for doing so and also there is another variation you might be interested in.

eBay:

Most of the Lanikai LU-21P ukuleles on ebay are around $79.  You can do better than that, right?  Well, you might want to bid on this auction for your Lanikai LU-21. Right now it's only $30.

Musician's Friend:

Depending on the deals and specials that are running, sometimes Musician's Friend has cheaper prices than Amazon and other times they don't.  However, what they do have is great customer service and a fantastic return policy.  Also, if you are looking to buy more than just a ukulele (strings, mics, cords, etc) then you'll spend less time looking at Musician's Friend and overall, I'd expect your cost to be just about the same as Amazon.  On the Lanikai LU-21 and LU-21P, though, they are about $10 higher than amazon.
