Risa TE style Electric Tenor Ukulele Surf Green with free bag
The joke has often been made that the Risa LP ukuleles are as much fun as you can have with your clothes on. But for every budding Slash that was satisfied with the LP model there was another budding Keith Richards/Bruce Springsteen (Insert Rock God or Goddess here) waiting in the wings for their own moment in the sun. Risa have been listening to our cries and now those dreams can become a reality.
This tenor ukulele is a very faithful scaling down of the classic Tele design. This electric ukulele has a unique single coil neck pickup and the more familiar bridge humbucker, volume/tone controls, and a 3 way selector switch, so you can quickly and easily switch from searing lead sounds on the bridge pickup to chunky strumming sounds on the neck pickup and everything in between.
Made in the Czech Republic, this instrument is very well made indeed, with great attention not just to the styling, but also to the finishing. The hardware is as you would expect from Risa - high quality components - which combined with the build quality makes for an electric ukulele that sounds good and is built to last.
To replace the strings, you need the top 4 strings from a standard set of 10 gauge electric guitar strings (10, 13, 16, 28 or very similar), which gives you the low G tuning. To get a high G tuning, you need an 11 gauge single string.
It can also be tuned like a mandolin, if you want to play it in 5ths!
