It needs to be light. The strings should be made out of metal or nylon and sound great. It should come in several different woods and the sound should be rich, full and strong. You probably won’t use anything other than ukuleles in your next acoustic guitar lesson.
You will want to look for an ukulele that is a little longer than your average ukulele. But don’t worry too much if your ukulele is shorter and is still considered a good quality. Some ukuleles will allow you to play with the bridge pickup off even if you are playing it with the tuners adjusted as to be off to the side, like this one:
One more thing, always check and fit your guitar after every lesson in case there are changes to the ukulele strings, but remember that the bridge pickup is normally turned ON from the factory. There is one exception to this, if a string is missing from the bridge pickup, then you will need to find out if you have it in the ukulele before you start playing and start the lesson with the pickup turned ON.
When choosing an ukulele, try to think first of your needs and requirements and then compare quality between ukuleles. You will find that, by studying, you can usually find something with similar sound as an ukulele in a lot of cases, and with a similar cost. And you may also come to find that, when you have an available ukulele, you can just try one out. Just make sure that the ukulele you decide on has the features you are looking for. If not, you can always start from scratch.
