This Songbird Series soprano is a joy to play! The mahogany body is light in weight and dripping with rich, snappy tone. The body has a classic flow with a touch of modern class.
This series has a quartersawn cherry neck, Richlite fingerboard (no radius), maple dot inlays and a 2-way adjustable truss rod that guarantees buttery action and amazing playability.
The pickup is hand built and wound in-house to our specs! The Alnico V magnets yield a rich and touch sensitive tone and exceptional clarity. This model sports a “humbucker” which provides noise free operation and thick, juicy tone.
The body is designed for ergonomics and comfort. The cutaway allows for easy access to the highest frets and the arm lean on the top ensures maximum comfort. The belly cut on the back makes this electric ukulele perfectly suited for standing or seated performance.
All Sparrow ukuleles are strung with our custom selected set of GHS strings to ensure the perfect balance of feel, playability, ergonomics, tone and intonation. This uke comes standard with high G tuning, but if you would prefer low G, just let us know and we will set it up for that.
The action is low and light and this uke will come out of the box set up and ready to shred!
