New Gear Review: Fender Piha’ea Soprano Ukulele

Fender_UkePiha’ea is the Hawaiian word for playful. Just looking at this soprano-style uke definitely brings a smile to my face and any player will smile right from the first chord played. The Fender Piha’ea features an all-mahogany body, black neck and body binding, rosewood bridge, and Fender headstock with open-gear tuners. For a limited time, the Piha’ea Soprano model is available in an all-natural finish or a version with a red screen graphic of a beautiful hula girl. The Fender Piha’ea Soprano Ukulele sells for $79.95 MSRP. http://fender.com.
