This six-string baritone sized ukulele body offers fantastic versatility and is played and fretted just like a guitar. Its tuning intervals are also the same as a guitar too, only slightly higher, A to A. The ultimate travel instrument with really sweet tones and ease of play. All Alvarez ukes are constructed with a dovetail neck joint for optimal strength and transfer of energy between the neck and body. The bracing design is a modification on traditional fan style braces to optimize response. The response is also aided by a solid “slotted” rosewood bridge, which enhances projection and helps to make string changes easier and quicker. Other appointments and features include quality-seasoned tonewoods, real bone nut and saddles, mahogany neck, rosewood fingerboard and premium tuners. Alvarez Artist ukuleles are lively and sophisticated and deliver exceptional player experience.
