The sweet-toned, nylon-stringed ukulele originated in the 19th century in Hawaii. It gained great popularity in the U.S. during the early in 20th century and from there spread internationally. Ibanez is pleased to add the pantheon of this popular instrument with the UEW15E which features a flamed mahogany concert body with a cutaway and C shape neck that makes it even easier to access all frets for fun solos when you're not just strumming along and an undersaddle pickup and built-in preamp for plugged in performances. Other appointments include a plastic saddle and nut, abalone rosette and chrome open gear tuners.

Sounds great plugged and unplugged; like tuner on it; cool looking; nice Grover tuners; like the nut and saddle material; good fit/finish (except for a few sharp fret ends; probably humidity issue in transit/storage; easy fix with a file); I've only owned it about two weeks; but so far, very pleased. I researched the heck out of electric ukes and landed on this one.
