Details

We are huge advocates of the new Millar ukulele range. This SP-260W all solid spruce and acacia tenor ukulele is a real game changer in its price point, easily comparing to old favourites like the Rebel and Opio ranges. These tenor ukuleles are a welcome breath of fresh air and we can't recommend them enough.

Made in a family run workshop of expert builders in Taiwan, Millar are creating ukuleles that pack much more punch than their price suggests. These instruments are up there with the likes of Pono, Big Island and Imua. The attention to detail and the quality woods chosen set these instruments aside as something truly special.

The SP-260W offers a very modern ukulele combination of a solid spruce top with acacia back and sides. The tone it produces is lovely and clear, direct with lots of attack. But, the acacia sound reigns in some of the 'honkier' frequencies and keeps things nice and calm. It really is a dream combination for those that want a ukulele to sound a little bit more like James Hill's Da Silva than say Jake Shimabukuro's Kamaka.

The acacia tenor ukulele looks properly awesome too. We mean no disrespect to the big brands like Pono out there but this wood is just sensational and a delight to listen to.

Finally, this model has a slotted headstock with some gorgeous antiqued machineheads and cream buttons. I'm also in love with the front binding combination of figured maple and a two tone rope effect to really bind those contrasting looking side woods together seamlessly.
