Itâ€™s been a whirlwind ride for 14-year old Grace VanderWaal, and Fender is commemorating this talented and humble artist with the Fender Grace VanderWaal Signature Concert ukulele. Having bought her first ukulele just after her 11th birthday with gift money, VanderWaal taught herself to play. She went on to win the 11th season of NBCâ€™s Americaâ€™s Got Talent, and it has been a no-time-to-breathe ride ever since. This no-nonsense uke gives beginning and emerging players just like Grace a chance to explore the wonderful world of the ukulele.
The Grace VanderWaal Concert uke is light, playable, and easy on the eyes. Good for either home, studio, or live performance, it offers a balanced, warm sound that is perfect for solo playing or for blending with other instruments. This signature uke features a laminated, lightweight sapele body that puts out outstanding tone. Onboard Fishman Kula electronics with built-in tuner let you plug in for stellar amplified uke tone. In addition, a 16-fret flat-radius walnut fingerboard on a nato neck offers smooth response and stellar playability. Thereâ€™s even a classic 4-in-line Tele headstock that lends this compact sound machine a bit of vintage Fender vibe â€” a feature we love here at Sweetwater.
