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.
If you're looking for your first better quality uke to take your playing to the next level or just want to start a step up from standard entry level the AU40 range will not disappoint.
