Friday Featured E-Store Item: Mainland Red Cedar Concert Ukulele Mainland Red Cedar Concert Uke

A great instrument with a huge sound. The Cedar Top and Rosewood Back & Sides give this ukulele a full, warm sound that will only get better with age. Fully intonated and setup, this instrument is a dream to play. Professionals to even utter-ukulele-amateurs would have an easy time getting around on this very playable fingerboard. Be careful about picking this instrument up, you won’t want to put it down.
