More about Ukulele '52

Leave it to Fender to fashion a great-sounding ukulele in the familiar form of the Telecaster. The Ukulele '52 features the unmistakable body and headstock shape of Fender's first famous electric guitar, with a finely crafted mahogany top, back and sides for rich South Seas tone.

Other features include tone-bar bracing, a three-piece mahogany neck, aged body and fingerboard binding, 19-fret rosewood fingerboard, rosewood bridge, satin neck and body finish, Aquila strings, and Fishman® KULA pickup/preamp system with volume and tone controls and onboard tuner.

To be honest this is my first ukulele, but it has a very nice sound and is of good quality.

The only problem I had is with the built-in tuner and its batteries in the Fishman tuner. When the uke arrived the batteries were already empty, so I bought new batteries, but if you forget to turn of the tuner, the batteries go empty again.
