Risa LP-Style Electric Soprano Ukulele Cherry Sunburst free gigbag
We have so much love for the high-end electric LP style Risa soprano ukulele. It's been hand crafted in Europe and is strung with steel strings, so expect very much an electric guitar sound, which can be run through effects very successfully.
This model boasts twin humbucker pickups in a traditional LP layout, with a 3 way switch volume and tone control so you can shape your tone the way you want it. The 3 way switch allows you to select the neck pickup, neck/bridge together, and the bridge pickup - so just using this switch you can go from scorching treble lead sounds to mellow backing strums.
This electric soprano ukulele can be tuned like a mandolin as well as a ukulele with the right selection of strings. For ukulele tuning, you need to use a set of electric guitar 10's, using the 13 for the A, 17 for the E, 26 for the C, and the 36 strings for a Low G configuration. Or you can find another 13 or a 14 to use as a high G.
The build quality is excellent, it sounds and looks the part - what is not to like! Each one is difference, with unique grain patterns and inclusions showing through the finish. The pictures show an average example.
Do not be put off by the removable clear film coatings on the plastic components. Underneath this film, the plastic will look brand new!
