I've purchased 40 Rogue baritone ukes in the past three years to use in teaching music to inner city kids. The ukes don't cost much so there's not much risk if a kid breaks his. The baritone uke is a also a great gateway to guitar later on. The uke is machine made, so there are adjustments to be made to some. I sometimes sand down the saddle to bring the strings closer to the neck, and I often file sharp edges on sides of the frets to make them smooth and more playable. But spending 10 minutes to save half the price of better ukes is a good investment of my time.

this uke is great for someone who is wanting something to just play around on,or a beginner not yet sure if they want to make a commitment, and not use it in a serious setting. It is an awesome price and has nice geared tuning knobs. The overall quality of the uke is very sloppy! I was not impressed by all of the visible glue on the product, as well as all of the nicks, and dents in the neck and fret board. the sound isn't terrible but after you change the srings it doesnt sound half bad. Overall, a cheap but an ok beginner uke.
color of product is nice, it has nice tuning knobs, sound is not bad for money.
chipping on neck and fret board, visible glue on entire ukulele, rough spots on neck around fret dots.
great price for any instrument, just isn't the best quality.

Comments about Rogue Baritone Ukulele:

I was really surprised and delighted with the quality of this Ukulele given its low price. It is built tough. It has its superficial flaws, but it works well. Great for practice and taking to places where it might be damaged. Bought some Aquila strings but have not put them on. The original string are usable for now. I played Ukulele years ago, and decided I'd try again. It's gradually coming back to me. If you want a knock-around Bari Ukulele, this is a good one!

      Comments about Rogue Baritone Ukulele:

      I figured that for the price that Musician's Friend was asking for this uke, I could afford to take a chance on an instument I'd never tried before, so I did it. Boy, am I happy that I did! As I already play a little guitar, knowing the chords was already within my capability, so playing this little guy was a go from the beginning. As others have mentioned, it's sturdy, playable, and most of all, it's cheap! Beginners should always start cheap and move up if they like what they have. I did change the the strings to the least expensive D'Addario's the MF had (EJ87B Titaniums) and they seemed much sturdier and the fun began. Get one, you'll love it!

          Comments about Rogue Baritone Ukulele:

          I wanted to add a baritone to my "collection." I now have ukulele fever. If you scroll all the reviews, you will see that the uke's quality has improved since way back. Mine arrived in good shape. There are a few imperfections, but none of these affects the playing of the instrument. I tried the original strings DGBE with my uke fingerings and the uke sounded great. I had ordered a set of baritone GCEA strings for this uke, and after a day put them on the uke. That set of Bari uke strings was misleading (website said "low" Bari GCEA strings), but the G was. High G and I wanted. Low G for the Bari; so I took the low G from the original DGBE set and put that on successfully. The original strings, DGBE, are obviously inferior looking. Something to think about if you are wanting a Low G replacement string. As a novice I wanted to stay With the GCEA tuning. The DGBE strings of course are deeper and lower sounding; so stay with those if you prefer that tuning. I have a Luna pineapple, a Córdoba concert, a flea concert, and a Mahalo tenor. I have low G strings on several them, plus one with a high G. The neck of the Bari is wider so fingering is a bit more challenging and you have to be more precise with your fingering than with the three other smaller uke's. I did not want to spend a lot of money. You cannot beat the price of this Rogue Bari. It's a good intro deal and will let you know if you want to move up in quality or not should you want to purchase a more expensive Bari. The Bari is also a great choice if you want to move to a regular guitar later. I tried the guitar 40 years ago, but it was "too many strings" for me. The 4 string Bari is great and accessible. You can also play and join in with the guitars should that be your goal or if you want to introduce students to the guitar. It's a safe gamble if you are unsure about spending the money. Musicians Friend is also great to work with.

            This is a great baritone ukulele for a novice player such as myself. I have played other instruments for years, and wanted to try some ukuleles on for size. After buying a cheap soprano uke, I was disappointed at how poorly it held tune. However, this baritone uke holds tune extremely well, it sounds bright, and is constructed simply and effectively.

                I could nitpick some of the details, like not very snug fit of tuning knobs, but overall the finish and quality is head and shoulders above anything else at this price line. Excellent starter or practice piece.

                  I have been a working musician for over 40 years. I know what to look for in an instrument. Maybe I got a "golden" one, but I can't find anything wrong with this Rogue baritone ukulele. It played well out of the box, is structurally sound inside and out, and sounds good enough with the stock strings. I have owned Rogue instruments before; sometimes you a lemon. But Musicians Friend will always make it right for you, so if you are willing to go that route, Rogue instruments can be a great value all things considered. If you are considering the purchase of a first baritone ukulele, you couldn't go wrong with this one, as long as the price remains so low.

                  Comments about Rogue Baritone Ukulele:

                  after reading a lot of reviews and checking some you tube videos I decided to get this uke. The reason I did is the guitar tuning and wide string spacing. I have arthritis and large sausage fingers and have not been able to play my steel string guitars for a couple of years.My classical has has become to hard to get my fingers to work cleanly. I found the string spacing wide enough on this uke to finger most chords cleanly. It has good tone and after settling the strings a couple of weeks it hold it tune pretty good. The uke has no bushings on the tuners,but they hold tune well. I had to tighten the mount screws on tuners when first unpacked, also lowered both nut and bridge. After lowering, intonation is pretty good. The uke is sturdy and other than no bushings every thing is tight and well fitted. no buzzes beeps pings or clunks. this thing feels pretty sturdy, the finish is simple and clean,it looks a heck of a lot better than the website picture. I put D'Addario EJ87B strings on it and they sound great, the wound strings that came on it were just ok but the solid nylons were horrible sounding. Thanks to the wide string spacing I'm able to play and sing without having to play 2 finger bar chords up and down the neck. I am pleased with this uke.
