Gold Tone ResoUke

One part ukulele, one part resonator, the Gold Tone ResoUke combines the best of both worlds with the comfortable playability of a concert scale ukulele and a brass body that projects a loud, distinct tone unlike any other ukulele in your collection!

Gold Tone ResoUke 1.jpg

The Gold Tone Resouke features a reverse-cone resonator with biscuit bridge and the resonant brass body carries the sound with beautiful echoing lows and clear, cutting strums. The Gold Tone/Beard resonator coverplate features a removable palm rest, so there's no need to detach the strings and remove the entire coverplate in order to adjust string action, break angle, string spacing or to replace the bridge saddle. The palm rest can also be shimmed to different heights for perfect right hand comfort. The ResoUke also features a bone nut, a Canadian hard rock maple bridge saddle, 14:1 geared Kluson-style tuning machine heads and custom-gauged Aquila Nylgut strings for the best possible tone.

This uke is a rare one for our shop, but we’re lucky to have this very lightly used instrument available now with nice, poly-foam case included. These guys are regularly priced around $450, but you can take this one home for our Friday Feature price of only $350!
