Journey J-Uke UC770CE Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Concert Ukelele w/ Travel Case
Availability: In Stock
When it's time to graduate from a toy to a real instrument, the J-Uke UC770CE is worthy of your serious consideration. This full-scale concert-size acoustic-electric ukulele is fitted with a super-cool scoopaway and premium appointments and tonewoods to deliver optimal tone and playability for ukulele players on-the-go.
The J-Uke is made with a premium grade solid meranti top and engineered meranti back and sides with sitka bracing. Journey uses premium open-back tuners to keep the weight down and the tuning stable. Often used in high-end ukes, meranti is a phenomenal tonewood with a clear and resonant voice and a shimmer that is truly eye-catching. The exclusive rosewood scoopaway gives great access to upper frets and just looks friggin’ cool. Add in rosewood binding and rosette with matching bridge and fretboard and you have yourself a distinctive and elegant looking ukulele.
You read correctly...this is an acoustic-electric uke. The Fishman Sonitone Onboard Preamp System features a soundhole mounted preamp with rotary controls for Volume and Tone. It is mated to a Fishman undersaddle Sonicore pickup to provide you with clean, quiet and clear sound.
Included with your ukelele is the JourneyTek travel case. This case is designed with premium high-density polyethylene foam, a reinforced neck pad, a ballistic nylon shell, and rubberized protective panels on the bottom. Yeah, the JourneyTek case is engineered for maximum instrument protection. But this is only the beginning of an awesome travel bag. An abundance of daisy chains enables you to clip your ukulele onto any other backpack, and makes it a cinch to clip it directly to other JourneyTek instrument and travel bags – or simply use the adjustable shoulder strap to comfortably carry your uke hands-free. The JourneyTek uke case also comes with tons of storage space. The patented neck pockets enable you to store your “case candy,” digital accessories, and other essentials by taking advantage of the space on the sides of the instrument neck. The pleated main pocket expands to fit even more gear, and the expandable front mesh pocket gives you even more.
A ukelele is only as good as its strings, so the UC770CE comes with some of the best. Nylgut Series of ukulele strings by Aquila were developed by blending three different synthetic components to make a composite material that sounds better and stays in tune better than standard nylon strings, but with the feel and playability of genuine gut. An added feature of this exclusive composite material is that is was designed to absorb less moisture than other strings; which greatly improves intonation and tuning accuracy.
