This is a really stunning acacia concert ukulele from Big Island. The long necked, electric uke is very on trend, and we know that you'll love this model. You'd got lots of choice of electric ukuleles from the likes of Risa, IMUA, Pono, and now Big Island have joined in. These ukes are made in China and are excellent value for money, being about half the price of comparably specced models from Pono and IMUA.
Having said that, you still get the Fishman Pro passive under saddle uke pickup, as well as a nice padded gigbag, and beautiful looking cuts of wood. This acacia concert ukulele has a chambered body, like a lot of the electric ukes available today, which makes them nice and light and ideal for stage use.
With only a simple volume control knob on board, you would need to rely on your amp or pre-amp unit for your tone shaping. You can get some fantastic sound when you plug in, authentically ukulele, without the electric guitar sound you sometimes get with these kind of ukuleles. The acoustic volume is very quiet, so it's perfect for late night practice.
The concert ukulele shown in the photos is a good representation of average, though each one will vary a little in appearance. Contact us for photos of current stock if you wish.
