The walnut fretboard is also a sight to behold, blending in perfectly with the bright finish and offering great sustain and resonance. Being incredibly smooth, your fingers will have more than enough comfort as you strum, pick, and pluck your favoured tunes on this charismatic ukulele.
Louder than it looks. Whilst it may look like a purely acoustic, classical instrument, this beauty actually offers you an incredibly responsive, powerful sound when plugged in. It contains a quality preamp system which helps you to retain the ukulele's natural tone, whilst also allowing you to shape your sound with the volume and tone control dials. This means that you can easily transfer the sound you love to live settings, as well as experiment with the range of tonal options this instrument offers. There's also a useful tuner built into the preamp, which adds a significant amount of convenience to your playing experience.
Its incredibly robust. A unique mandolin bridge and gold die cast tuners offer a great level of tuning stability, and the bone nut also creates a beautiful resonance of its own. The honey burst finish is in a class of its own in terms of aesthetics, giving this vibrant visual appeal and topping off its fine array of quality features.
