Due to the huge popularity of the half-thickness ukuleles offered by several makers, we decided to produce some Mele “slimline” travel ukuleles. We were amazed at how great they sounded, and we’ve been selling a lot of them in the $600 to $1200 price range. We thought we’d offer a version for people on tighter budgets, and one of the models that resulted is this Hula Ukes “slimline” travel tenor. Being constructed from solid mahogany, it sounds great! Almost as good as the Mele handmade solid mahogany slimline travel uke, for some $210 less.
Features closed-geared chrome-plated tuning machines, rosewood fingerboard and bridge, 19 solid nickel frets, and superb action, intonation and playability.
