Fender launches line of Stratocaster, Telecaster and Jazzmaster ukuleles
With classic Fender colours to boot.
Fender has launched its Fullerton Ukulele range, featuring Telecaster, Jazzmaster Stratocaster ukulele models.
The ukuleles feature some design nods to Fender’s aesthetic, aside from just the body shapes – with four-in-a-line headstocks with the classic Tele, Jazzmaster and Strat shapes, as well as style-appropriate pickguards. Construction comes in the form of laminated spruce top, a maple neck and a laminated walnut fingerboard.
There’s also a fender-designed preamp with separate volume and tone controls, as well as a built-in tuner. The bridge is a no-tie design, meaning string changes don’t require a crash-course in knots.
The colours on offer also hark to classic Fender designs, with Butterscotch Blonde and Black for the Telecaster, Three-Tone Sunburst and Black for the Stratocaster and Olympic White and Tidepool for the Jazzmaster.
