Ask About This Product

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 offers a variety of models, including models with built-in electronics, like this UEW5E. 

The UEW5E features a Sapele body and Purpleheart fretboard and bridge, with a venetian-style cutaway and C shape neck that makes strumming and soloing a snap. The use of Purpleheart on the bridge and fretboard give this model a pronounced midrange and high frequency snap that really carries in open environments like the beach and campouts. Other appointments include a plastic saddle and nut, abalone rosette and chrome open gear tuners.
