Few instruments in recent history have gained in popularity as quickly as the ukulele. With its compact size and ease of playability, the ukulele can easily become a player’s “go-to” instrument! The all-new 2953 soprano uke from Hilo boasts a striking acacia wood body making it the perfect choice for players looking to make the first step from beginner to pro. Though small, the 2953 is comfortable to play. Not unlike finger-style guitars, its traditional 38/48mm nut width means a slightly wider playing surface than many modern ukes allowing for easier chord fingering than slimmer necks. A synthetic bone nut and saddle mean better tone than lesser expensive materials and this uke’s got both! Other features that set this Premier Series instrument apart from the rest of the line is the beautiful satin natural finish, chrome open-geared tuners with pearl buttons, pearloid fingerboard inlays, a matching acacia wood peghead cap, and Hilo branded padded gig bag.
