This Sparrow tenor electric steel string ukulele is 100% handmade in Richmond, VA, USA!

This ukulele sports a handsome Ambrosia Maple neck and a solid Walnut body. The fretboard is a very striking cut of Patagonia Rosewood with rectangular Maple fret marker inlay.

You will love the sound and feel of this solid body steel string electric tenor ukulele! The action is smooth and low and the intonation is spot on. Thanks to our 21:1 ratio low backlash tuning gears, this uke is easy to dial in and stays in tune wonderfully.

The pickup is hand built and wound in-house to our specs! The Alnico V magnets yield a rich and touch sensitive tone and exceptional clarity. This model sports a “humbucker” which provides noise free operation and thick tone. Pulling out on the tone knob engages “single coil split” mode which yields crystalline single coil tones and bell-like chime. The “resistance dropping” circuit lowers the 500k potentiometer value (typically perfect for humbucking pickups) to about 290K, which is much more suitable for a single coil pickup. This provides an even more accurate approximation of single coil tone!

The Ambrosia Maple neck is easily adjusted with a modern, 2-way truss rod ensuring proper setup in any season or climate. This is a new feature that we have started offering this year!

This model is one of the first to feature a 12″ radius curvature to the fretboard! This slight arch is common on guitars but rarely implemented on ukuleles. It allows the shape of the fretboard to match more accurately the natural curvature of the players hand. This makes fretting difficult chords a bit easier and reduces hand fatigue during longer sessions of performance.  

All Sparrow ukuleles are strung with our custom selected set of GHS strings to ensure the perfect balance of feel, playability, ergonomics, tone and intonation. This uke comes standard with Low G tuning, but if you would prefer high G, just let us know and we will set it up for that.

The action is low and light. This uke will come out of the box set up and ready to shred!

This model comes with a padded gigbag and 2 strap buttons installed!

Woods:  Walnut body, Mango Top and Ambrosia Maple neck. Patagonia Rosewood fingerboard with geometric Maple inlay and Walnut pickup bobbins.

Strings:  Gcea (low G) GHS flat wound custom set: .032, .024, .016, .012.   Want high G tuning? Just let us know, no problem.

Electronics:  The controls are standard volume and tone. The Alnico 5 magnet hand wound, custom designed pickup has 6500 turns (per coil) of 42 gauge copper wire and has a resistance of about 7 ohms. This gives the pickup a warm, organic tone that reacts nicely to picking nuance. All the bridge saddles are properly grounded to provide the quietest operation possible.

This pickup is wired for “coil splitting”. To access this feature, simply pull out on the tone knob and it will engage a switch that deactivates half of the pickup providing a much more “single coil” tone.

Radius: 12″ radius fingerboard for maximum playing comfort! (New Feature)

Fretboard Markers: Maple rectangular inlay (frets 3,5,7,9,12,15,17,19)

Truss Rod:   Two way adjustable truss rod.

Tuning:  GCEA

Bridge:  We use individual string saddles to allow for optimum string spacing for the best feel and performance. The bridge saddles have individually adjustable intonation screws as well as standard height adjustment.

Nut:  The nut is hand carved out of bone. The nut width is 1.5″.

Tuners: 21:1 ratio geared tuners.

Gigbag:   Included

This model comes with 2 strap buttons installed and is ready to rock!
