    Comments about Fender Nohea Koa Tenor Ukulele:

    First uke. Fender bass player, so I gambled on this after only seeing pictures. Very happy with looks, sound, value. I just read somewhere it was top 5 rated overall, after some lots-more-expensive ones. Also, love tenor size for my thick hands. Another plus, it fits standard mandolin hard case.

      Comments about Fender Nohea Koa Tenor Ukulele:

      This very handsome uke has a nice tone, it is well balanced, the fretboard is consistent throughout, after the first week the instrument held its tune very well. It is nicely made--an instrument I am proud to own, at a very affordable price.

            Always wanted one and while you can buy less expensive I have learned it's usually better to spend a little more for quality.

                  I got this ukulele three years ago. Its tone is both warm and pristine. I have played it hundreds of hours and it plays as good as new. Great craftsmanship, great detail on the body, and great sound.

                    I like this uke very much, and I have a few I like to play including a Martin. I love the finish, the tone and the ease of play. I use only Aquila Nylgut so that is where I am coming from but it tunes up nice, stays tuned, and there you have it. Recommend.

                      Comments about Fender Nohea Koa Tenor Ukulele:

                      This is a very pretty ukulele. I live in Maui, and I am very familiar with the quality of koa wood. Koa is native to the Hawaiian Islands, and there are many things made of this sacred wood, ukuleles in multitude! I was a bit skeptical when I ordered this uke "sight unseen", but once it arrived, all of my concerns washed away on the next outgoing wave in the Pacific Ocean. The quality of the koa laminate is excellent. The tone and sustain is very good. The stings settled-in in less than a week, so the instrument stays in tune very well; however, I did purchase a clip-on tuner, which I now recommend to all who want to play ukulele on a regular basis. It just makes things so much simpler! The "Fender" headstock is indeed 'da bomb! Definitely a recognizable American icon within the musicians' world. When I come home from work I usually turn on the TV to catch the 'fair & balanced' news of the day, grab a beer out of the fridge, and flop down on the couch... but now I pick-up my ukulele, and I just cannot put it down! I also play guitar and bass guitar, so learning the ukulele has been a breeze... but it is a nice "addiction", because I will keep playing it... and playing it. I'm learning a bunch of Hawaiian songs I've never played before... ever... and I'm having all this new-found fun. This is great, and this particular instrument was well worth its purchase price! The only negative comment I can make, and it's not much of one, has to do with the included "gig bag." I wouldn't count too much on this for protection if one were to be taking this uke around for gigs. This thing is very thin... no padding whatsoever! I will be snooping around the music stores on my next visit to Oahu looking for a gig bag or case. I'm afraid the "Fender" headstock might cause my search for something that fits a bit of a challenge, but I shall try...

                      This is one sweet instrument. Well built, fine looking, excellent tone and resonance, very good intonation, AND it stays in tune! My first Nohea 'uke was damaged in an unfortunate accident (nasty crack across the back), but still plays fine! I was so impressed by the sound and quality of this instrument that I purchased another, and it is just as sweet as the first one. I am always complimented on the sound and appearance of this 'uke. Well worth the price!
