The UEW13MEE is a concert size Ukulele with a built-in pickup and preamp for amplified performance and a cutaway design to allow access to the higher frets (Concert ukes are larger than a Soprano, but smaller than a Tenor). The body (top, back and sides) is made of a beautiful Maccasar Ebony and sports an open pore natural finish, which optimizes string vibration and enhances the instruments sound. Electronics feature an AEQ2U preamp and an Ibanez under-saddle pickup. The UEW13MEE also includes a beautiful Maple rosette, a Purpleheart fretboard, chrome open gear tuners.
Once thought of as a novelty from a bygone era, the Ukulele has made an astounding rebound in popularity in recent years. The adoption of this diminutive 4-string instrument by many of today’s popular artists has introduced the uke to a whole new generation of fans and created a legion of contemporary enthusiasts. While capable of producing beautiful, sophisticated music, the ukulele is also a very accessible instrument. With only 4 nylon strings it’s a breeze to learn, easy on your wallet, and ... well, a heck of a lot of fun!
