The Ashbury AU40 range are a popular step up from a basic starter uke. Featuring a flamed oak body and top, hardwood fingerboard and buffalo bone nut and saddle for a stable tone.
The top and body meet with some white plastic binding which helps the whole instrument to resonate as one and produce a rich voice with an element of sustain. This instrument is comfortable to hold and the neck plays easily.
This uke comes strung to tune as a standard baritone DGBE low to high.
