I Want to Love It

Comments about Fender Mino'Aka Koa Cutaway Electric Ukulele:

I really want to love this ukulele. I had my eye on it for months and finally pulled the trigger. Out of the box it is beautiful, bright tone and feels good in the hands. Unfortunately it came without a bag like the 2 Fender Tenors I have. For the price point, that escapes me.

However, the wiring inside tends to vibrate against the top and buzz, which is a constant annoyance. I have to wrestle my finger into the sound hole, play with the wires and hope I have moved them away from the top for a short time. Eventually the wires find themselves against the top again and the buzzing ensues.

The uke has nice electronics built in but obviously, amplifying this noise is a ridiculous idea. I keep hoping for the best and that the buzz will go away, but I don't see that happening. I am now going to have to remove the strings and dig around inside with a tiny light and a dentist mirror to try and affix the wires to the body somehow.

I own at least three ukuleles with electronics that I can recall at the moment, and this is the only one with this kind of wire buzz issue. It maybe a rare fluke but it is mine. :(

    Comments about Fender Mino'Aka Koa Cutaway Electric Ukulele:

    Great sound, nice high gloss finish, cool look. Very hard to find a case that fits due to the Tele-style headstock.
