The Les Paul ukulele is a fantastic instrument for those who are just starting out with the uke, as well as for those who have been playing for some time. Let’s take a closer look at the instrument to see what it offers and why it might be the one that you want to buy.
This Les Paul ukulele has a 15” scale, along with a gorgeous AAA grade flame maple top. The body is made from mahogany, and the neck joint is a bolt-on-four-bolt recessed design. The instrument features 19 frets, nickel hardware, and it only weighs around 1.8 lbs. It includes a built in piezo film undersaddle pickup, as well as a gig bag. While you might eventually want to get a case for your ukulele, the gig bag will actually do a decent job of taking care of your uke when you aren’t playing it, and when you are traveling with it.
Once of the nice features of the Les Paul ukulele is the fact that it is an acoustic/electric. When you are simply practicing around the house, as you should be often, you can simply play it acoustically, and it will still have a fantastic sound. It would work well this way for any small setting, just as you would expect from a high quality uke. However, it is also electric, so you can plug it into an amplifier and take your show on the road, or just to the garage with your friends for a jam session.
Another one of the great things about the ukulele is the price. While you can find a number of ukuleles for around the same price point as this Les Paul model, you won’t find the same quality in most of those other models. With this option, you get the quality that you expect from any instrument that bears the Les Paul brand, but you will not have to break the bank to get it.
While it does have a nice introductory level price, especially considering the quality of the instrument, it can work well for those who have more experience with the instrument, as well as those who are just starting out with the instrument. If you would like to have a decent ukulele, but you aren’t sure that you are going to stick with the instrument for the long haul, you do not want to spend a fortune. Getting this instrument helps you save some money, but it can also grow along with you. In addition, the Les Paul could make a great gift for someone in your life who is thinking about following in your footsteps and learning to play the ukulele.
We all know that the most important part of the ukulele is the sound that you are able to get from the instrument. Sound trumps the aesthetics for most players. However, with the Les Paul Ukulele, you will also get an instrument that looks great. It’s the best of both worlds. When you are choosing your uke, you can pick from two different colors. They have the cherry burst, as well as the vintage sunburst. If you are familiar with guitars that are a part of the Les Paul line, then you are undoubtedly familiar with these colors. Both are beautiful, and you can choose the one that suits your personality the best.
The Les Paul ukulele is a fantastic instrument with plenty of benefits. Whether you are just starting, looking for a gift, or you are holding your own concerts, this is an instrument to consider.Return to Home Page
