Maestro are a Ukulele brand that we have heard much about over the past 5 years. The reviews from friends of the shop and other music store colleagues were all the same; Unique, Contemporary looking instruments designed to sound good, feel good and with a nice smattering of bling throughout.
The bling might not be for everybody but the practical appointments like an offset side-port sound hole, Bevelled arm rest and a satin finished neck with high gloss bodies make this a worthy contender to join anyones prized Ukulele collection.
This model - The UCKOSBK is part of the Island series which is Maestro language for 'All bling and ready to sing'. This all solid Acacia beauty (Pacfic Koa as Maestro like to label it) has some bright mellow tones to it. Its a much sweeter Ukulele than the other Ukuleles in the Maestro range and is similar in feel and sound to some of the Big Island Koa Ukuleles and KoAloha's Acacia Opio Ukes.
If you are in the market for a Ukulele that speaks volumes before you even play it and then delivers something introverted and sweet when you do finally put your hands on it then this could well be the Ukulele for you.
Gorgeous abalone binding and maple bevelled armrest on this Ukulele too. A real treat of a Ukulele.
