The first time you will see it you will know that this is an extraordinary ukulele. It has a beautifull gloss finish on top, back and sides. There is a cool scalloped cutaway – you can see it in front but you can't see it from the back – very nice esthetic detail. Then, there is this beautiful binding with contoured arm rest and there is this extra side port hole for better sound projection to the player.
Eclipse-TE8 has this classical guitar like slotted headstock with gold Ortega tuners and this model has 8 strings. First 2 strings (if you're looking from bottom to top), strings A and E are doubled – so there are 2 A and 2 E strings for bigger volume. Third string C is paired with another C but in upper octave, while 4th string G has another G string in lower octave. This gives you wider tonality range because you have this one extra octave so your chords sound much fuller.
Overall, a great uke for a great price. And yes, it comes with a deluxe Ortega gig bag.
