The Vintage Uke is a Hawaiian instrument, and a 19th century interpretation of the machete, a small guitar-like instrument that was taken to Hawaii by Portuguese immigrants. It gained great popularity elsewhere in the United States during the early 20th century, and would spread from here internationally.
Though the Ukulele can be mistaken as a toy or novelty instrument due to its size, its a serious instrument within its own right. The VUK15 is the soprano size, but can also be found with other shapes; the concert, tenor, and baritone sizes. The Vintage Soprano is offering a classic soprano ukulele that is constructed from a Sapelli body which is a great all-purpose tonewood. Sapelli delivers a well-balanced tone, rich warmth and blended with a little extra treble zing.
Each instrument is quality checked and set-up for optimum playability, ensuring a comfortable and consistent playing experience right from the first chord strummed.
