Fender is launching an all-new Fullerton Ukulele Series, a non-traditional take on the tiny stringed instrument that draws from Fender's classic electric guitar heritage. 

Inspired by Fender’s signature electric body shapes such as the Telecaster, Stratocaster and Jazzmaster, this ukulele series is geared toward all skill levels (beginner to advanced) and aims to be a thoroughly modern twist on the traditional ukulele.

Each ukulele features a laminated spruce top, maple neck with a laminated walnut fingerboard and a Fender-designed preamp system that allows players to alter the sound via a single tone knob.

The Fullerton Series also has a convenient no-tie bridge, making string changes easy in comparison to traditional ukulele bridges that require special knotting.

Each model is available in the same colors that Fender electric guitars are known for--with the exception of the Jazzmaster which will be available in a brand new color, Tidepool. 

They're available for $199.99 beginning May 5 in the below colorways:

    • Fullerton Telecaster (Butterscotch Blonde, Black)
    • Fullerton Stratocaster (Three Tone Sunburst, Black)
    • Fullerton Jazzmaster (Tidepool, Olympic White) 

Meanwhile, to help keep people from going crazy while quarantined, Fender is also offering new users three months of free access to Fender Play, the complete online learning app for guitar, bass and ukulele.
