Product Description

Fender brings you the authentic sound of the Hawaiian Islands with its first-ever series of ukulele models.

Ukuleles are enjoying renewed popularity, with exquisite sounds and designs that are a far cry from mere musical toys. Originally built by Portuguese immigrants to the Hawaiian Islands in the 1880s, the small guitar-like instruments produced a lilting sound that instantly evoked the lush South Pacific atmosphere of their island homeland.

Fender's three tenor-style ukulele models offer finely crafted sound and construction; they too instantly evoke the sound and spirit of Hawaii, with a dash of traditional Fender mojo for good measure--each one features the distinctive Fender Telecaster(R) guitar headstock shape, unique body shapes and bracing patterns designed exclusively for Fender, a Fender ukulele gig bag is included. Mahalo!

This one is the Fender Ukulele Nohea. In Hawaiian, this name translates directly into the English lovely, which this model certainly is--built of laminated koa (a native Hawaiian hardwood used by ancient Hawaiians to build dugout canoes), with a gloss finish and aged abalone acrylic binding.

zZounds is an authorized dealer of Fender products.

Customer Reviews
4 out of 5 (6 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "The Fender Nokea Soprano Ukele sounds just as beautiful as it looks."
Sound: This is one of the most beautiful "looking" and "sounding" instruments I've ever seen or played! I've been playing guitar for years (I am 75 years old)and was always "disdainful" of the "lowly" ukele. I am a member of the Ukele Club at our local Sr. Center. We have a "ukele choir" and 25-30 ukeles played makes a really beautiful sound. I am the envy of the club with my beautiful Nohea Tenor Ukelele. Selma Cox Feature: My uke came with a gig bag, and it great for what it is, but I plan to purchase a Hard case very soon. Ease of Use: Naturally, the more experienced the player...the greater that sound, but even a rank beginner would sound great on the instrument Quality: Beautifully made. Could certainly be used on the road. The Wow Factor: This instrument has it all! Overall: I own and still play a tenor guitar (which, I understand has become very rare) and is about 45 years old! If I live long enough, I plan to still be playing this instrument as long.

"Terrible Value"
Sound: It sounds ok. About average volume. Ok resonance, nothing special. Feature: N/A Ease of Use: It's fairly playable. The glossy neck makes it slower than most ukuleles. Quality: VERY POOR QUALITY! Just bad. Surprisingly bad for fender. Made in Indonesia. Value: Bad value. Look elsewhere. Manufacturer Support: I dealt with Fender for a replacement. They were helpful, but the replacement was barely better. The Wow Factor: The looks are what got me. The Koa and abalone make it look beautiful from afar. The tele headstock makes it different. Overall: I bought this because of its looks. For $200 it is extremely overpriced. It is very low quality. I had to exchange my 1st one because of how messed up the fretboard was. If you don't know anything about ukuleles you might be happy with it, but if you do, you will be frustrated. My Makala was put together better than this and it was less than half the price. Yes it looks nice from far away, but up close it is awful. Drips in lacquer, non-flushed binding on neck, chips in wood. Very disappointed. Both my first and replacement were bad.
