Overview

  • Solid Body

  • Offset Soundhole

Legends will one day be written about those who play the Teton® solid body ukulele with the offset sound hole. It is a fantastic little musical instrument! Sure, it has its practical purposes as well. For instance, it can be for anyone needing a travel-sized musical companion. The 1/8″ headphone output allows business professionals to practice in their hotel rooms at 2am without disturbing anyone. The addition of the MP3 input gives them the opportunity to play along to their favorite music (probably Chicago) at that early hour and have a fulfilling experience.

But the Teton ukulele is so much more than a companion for lonely business people. These eccentric instruments have been embraced by artists of every kind. From chamber orchestra directors to surfer cowboys, the Teton electric ukulele has found a home and been part of some truly amazing musical experiments. The ¼” output allows the Teton electric ukulele to be used in everyday situations—like playing it with maximum distortion in your local death metal band.

Notwithstanding the typical things that can be accomplished with a Teton solid body ukulele, it is the uniqueness and quirkiness of these instruments that inspire and allow each player’s individual artistic impressions to bubble to the top and flow over into amazingly new and profound interpretations of what music can be.

Solid body electric ukulele with an offset sound hole. Featuring 1/4″ mono out, 1/8″ stereo out, and 1/8″ auxiliary in jacks. Nylon strings and passive pick-ups under the saddle.

When I tell people I bought an electric Ukulele they chuckle to themselves as if it’s a silly idea. But this thing is screamin! They are no longer chuckling when they hear it played live. The sound is crisp and the intonation is great across the board.

For the price, this ukulele is a must have for anyone whether you just think a ukulele would be a fun little toy or you want a new sounding angle for a screaming lead ukulele in your jam band.

P.S. I don’t review anything, but I read reviews all the time. I was frustrated and surprised to see that this item had no reviews. I scoured the web for days searching for information and there is some useful stuff out there. BUT, I digress. The point is this: my first review ever and the first review of this instrument on the site.

IT’S GREAT, well worth the price. If you have any inclination on buying this, you should.
