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, with a dash of traditional Fender mojo for good measure — each one features the distinctive Fender Telecaster® guitar headstock shape, unique body shapes and bracing patterns designed exclusively for Fender, a Fender ukulele gig bag and an instruction book to get you started. Mahalo!
This one is the Fender Ukulele Nohea. In Hawaiian, this name translates directly into the English lovely, which this model certainly is — built of laminated koa (a native Hawaiian hardwood used by ancient Hawaiians to build dugout canoes), with a gloss finish and aged abalone acrylic binding.
