One of my kids wants one for Christmas.  And by kid, I mean 18 years old.

He plays guitar (not great, but enjoys it), but he wants a Ukulele to play for fun.  


I don't want a professional model but I don't want a young kid starter model either.  Something he can enjoy for several years without needing to upgrade immediately.


Maybe I am overthinking this, but anyone have suggestions?  I am thinking around the $50-$80 range.

What size do you want?  Soprano?  Concert?  Tenor?


Luna ukuleles are reasonably priced and most have decent sound.  Here's a concert one with a gig bag:  https://www.amazon.com/Guitars-UKETCMAH-Concert-Mahogany-Ukulele/dp/B003L7VQMA/ref=sr_1_4?s=musical-instruments&ie=UTF8&qid=1511898221&sr=1-4&keywords=luna+ukulele


Regardless of what kind you get, read reviews and compare prices at Amazon and Guitar Center, etc.

I bought this one for college dd last Christmas.   She liked having the box for transporting it to and from school.  She has never played guitar but I've heard her practicing from time to time during break.  Your son may improve faster since he has some experience on a guitar.
