HiGuitarsUK Swift, Steel String, Solid Body, Electric Concert Uke. Mahogany solid body and neck construction with 15 scale length.A good price for a UK handmade instrument. This'Swift' model has an extra wide body. (approx' tenor width, so not massive). For improved balance and component spacing.
The fretboard width at the nut is 36mm, for a little more finger room. The 4 independent adjustable bridge plates are steel with high mass stainless steel saddles for good sustain. These are arranged with a wide, acoustic uke like, string spacing of 38.5mm, G to A (most electric ukes have a narrow electric guitar like string spacing). Unlike most HiGuitarsUK instruments, this one has an opaque open-grain satin finish to the body.
Although this open-grain finish it is sufficiently thick enough that only a little of the wood grain pattern is visible. Like most opaque satin finished instruments, the finish may achieve a worn in look with long term use.
The usual multi-layer oil finish has been applied and worked into the neck. While a broader than usual sweep on the tone control adds to versatility. The vintage influenced styling, satin finish and quality chromed hardware combine to give a classy vintage yet modern vibe. The 15 (381mm) scale length will work well with the top 4 strings from a set of D'Addario EXL115W electric guitar 11s with a wound 3rd, tuned G-C-E-A with a low G. Body & Neck: Single piece mahogany thru-neck with 2 lightweight mahogany wings.
Adjustment free low profile carbon fibre neck rod, for long term stability. Fretboard: Hyedua with high grade 7mm white abalone shell fretboard dots. Slightly oversize 2.5mm side dots (for better visibility). Fretted with high grade hard American fretwire for longer fret life. Neck width at nut: 36mm.Neck depth at 1st fret: 19mm. Neck depth at 9th fret: 19.6mm. Top nut: Bone (not reconstituted). Bridge: 4 individual steel bridges. Tuners: Sealed gear (quality Korean made).
Strings: D'Addario electric This'Swift' has been a good fit in most of the padded concert sized ukulele bags tried. Pictures are of the actual item offered here. Previous HiGuitarsUK buyers said: (a small selection from our excellent feedback for these instruments).
