Fender brings you its first-ever series of ukulele models: the Hau'oli, the Nohea and the Pa'ina
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, ” according to Fender.
Fender’s three new tenor-style ukulele models offer the 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, 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.
- Hau’oli: $200.
- Nohea: $300.
- Pa’ina: $400.
