* CUSTOM SETUP - Although each instrument comes with a factory setup, it is strongly recommended to consider adding a custom setup. This is especially important if you value ease of playability, suffer from arthritis, have specific preferences for your setups, or desire a low action (i.e., minimal distance between strings and fretboard). In order to explore these customization options, simply click the "ADD SETUP" button below.

* REQUIRED FOR WARRANTY - To ensure your warranty is valid, it's crucial to use a humidifier, which is strongly recommended regardless of where you live. Not only do humidifiers safeguard your investment, but they also facilitate the warranty process by demonstrating that you have taken precautions to protect your ukulele. When making a warranty claim, it is likely that they will inquire about your use of a humidifier.

* A PICKUP (several brands available) - There are several brands available for pickup - simply click on "ADD PICKUP". However, it's important to note that install times may vary. If you require your instrument sooner, we recommend utilizing the RUSH pickup option.
