Comments about Mitchell MU100CE Acoustic-Electric Concert Ukulele:

This ukulele has a nice pickup system - the Fishman Kula, which is also what Fender uses in their AE ukuleles. When plugged in, it sounds just like you'd want a Piezo pickup to sound. It's made of all Koa on the body with an Indian Rosewood neck, so it's heavier than I had expected and gigging would be a challenge without a strap, but it does feel very sturdy and rugged, which I like.

It's a great ukulele, but the action is a bit too high. After playing for a while, my fingers and thumb hurt from having to press hard. I thought I might just be a wuss, but then I played a Lanakai and it was effortless (comparitively).
There's also a bulge on the back of the neck where it meets the headstock that makes it stronger. That's nice because it makes it less likely to break, but it also gets in the way when trying to play certain chords on the first few frets.

If you can adjust the saddle, this ukulele would be great. I personally don't have the time or know-how to do so, but the biggest drawback is the action.
