Australian Guitar - - Hot Gear -

In­spired by the Cal­i­for­nian homes of many celebri­ties, this uke’s screen­ready looks and head­line grab­bing fea­tures could only have one name – the Mon­tecito. Con­structed com­pletely from koa, this tenor­sized uke has a rich, sonorous tone that matches its sump­tu­ously el­e­gant aes­thetic.

The solid top pro­vides en­hanced res­o­nance and sus­tain, along with in­cred­i­ble warmth and well­bal­anced pro­jec­tion. The koa body is com­ple­mented by abalone top bind­ing and a bound back and fin­ger­board for a re­fined look. Other fea­tures in­clude a no­tie bridge for quick and easy string changes, a bone nut and sad­dle for su­pe­rior in­to­na­tion, an abalone rosette, vin­tage­style closed­back tun­ing ma­chines, and a four­in­line Tele head­stock for that un­mis­tak­ably clas­sic Fender look.
