The baritone ukulele is the most recent addition to the ukulele family tree, having become hugely popular in the 1950s when Arthur Godfrey regularly played one on TV. Genuinely acknowledged to be the finest baritone ukes ever made were those produced by Martin in the 50s and 60s.
The Mele baritone reproduces the Martins in dimensions, materials and appearance, but with some modern touches like a set of die-cast 18-to-1 Mele top-of-the-line geared tuners, an all-around solid ebony binding, and a larger and more securely attached bridge that can easily be fitted with a guitar-sized transducer for awesome amplified sound.
It is constructed, as the Martins were, from solid mahogany and ebony woods, and is entirely handmade. Comes with the Mele transferable limited lifetime warranty. A fantastically rewarding purchase for anyone from beginner to professional!
