Fender brings you the authentic sound of the Hawaiian Islands with its first-ever series of ukulele models. Ukuleles are enjoying renewed popularity, with exquisite sounds and designs that are a far cry from mere musical toys. Originally built by Portuguese immigrants to the Hawaiian Islands in the 1880s, the small guitar-like instruments produced a lilting sound that instantly evoked the lush South Pacific atmosphere of their island homeland. Fender’s three new tenor-style ukulele models offer finely crafted sound and construction; they too instantly evoke the sound and spirit of Hawaii. Each features the distinctive Fender Telecaster guitar headstock shape, unique body shapes and bracing patterns designed exclusively for Fender and a Fender ukulele gig bag to get you started. This one, the Fender Ukulele Hau’oli, comes from the Hawaiian word for happy, and is a basic model with sturdy laminated mahogany construction and a satin finish.
