Fender Ukuleles is made by the Fender Company that is best known for its high-end electric guitars and bases, which are standard equipment for performing musicians of every level, including the very top. The company has recently branched out into ukuleles, owing to the instrument's increasing popularity and graduation in the public eye from a toy to a legitimate musical instrument. They currently comprise of six models, all four-stringed models, that are designed to bring modern manufacturing techniques to this traditional instrument. They feature the distinctive elements of Fender design and wood patterns which are elegant and attractive.
There are six Fender Ukuleles. The Ukulele Pa'ina, Ukulele Nohea, Ukulele Hau'oli, Ukulele Minoaka, Minoaka Koa CE Concert, and Ukulele U'uku. All, except the Ukulele U'uku, are topped with the
Fender Telecaster style headstock, which features all four chrome tuners
lined up on the bottom side of the neck where they are most accessible
to the player. The tuners, bridge components and fret boards are
all commensurate with Fender's level of quality and are suitable for
professional use. Wood choices include koa and mahogany and passive
electronic pickups are available for electrified use. All models
feature 19 frets, except the Ukulele U'uku which sports 12 frets. They are all full-body designs, with cutaways
at the top frets which are characteristic of the company's electric
guitars. The Ukulele U'uku is the only traditional build without the cutaway. All ukuleles are equiped with Aquila strings.
