This is a decent Ukulele for the price. It has a nice bright tone and is great for beginners. One thing that I am a little confused about though. The 2nd string (C in C Standard Tuning) is nickel wound while the rest are nylon. Now when I first bought this ukuelele it didn't bother me, but after a few days of playing it started to unwind due to the fact that when you first get this you have to crank up the strings to get it to the high notes the strings are tuned to. So, just note, you will more than likely want to replace this string or will have to soon after purchasing.

This probably applies to models fabricated in late 2011 or early 2012, since all the old reviews are good. I bought the first instrument and, after a week or so, found out that one of the tuning pegs was getting harder and harder to turn. I couldn't tighten one of the strings. Went back to GC and they happily changed it for me. I stopped using it for a couple of days and when I wanted to play again I found that the glue at the neck gave off, and the arm was partially separated from the body in a very grotesque manner. Again, went back to GC and they asked me to contact Fender directly, since I had a guarantee on it. In the meantime, I bought another one. The sound you get from these is very smooth and relaxing, so I decided to continue with this model. As I was tuning it, I realized that one of the pegs was getting stuck again! I changed the pegs from the broken one, which had no problems with them, to the new one. I found out that one of the bores through which you pass the peg cylinder was slightly off, creating friction on the cylinder and preventing the peg from turning. This actually pushed the tuning lever out of the metal case. I brought it back one last time to the store and the guys told me other customers had been having problems as well, and they suggested other instruments for just a little extra. Turns out it was worth it. So, if you have an extra 20 in your wallet, go for a better instrument.

    So I was initially taken with the fender headstock and then after changing out the strings for nalgut strings and a week of letting them stretch out it is consistent and has a nice tone.

      Comments about Fender Hau'oli Mahogany Tenor Ukulele:

      Bought this for my daughter as a step up from $40 beginners model. She's very happy with the sound and playability. We tried several others in the same price, as well as a few in the $250 range and this one had the best tone and best projection.

        Comments about Fender Hau'oli Mahogany Tenor Ukulele:

        For the price this is a great Uke, sure it's not made strictly of wonderful woods. However what is lacks in construction materials it makes up for in quality of sound. I really like the look of it, and the unique style of headstock.

          Comments about Fender Hau'oli Mahogany Tenor Ukulele:

          As of now, I'm kind of an intermediate ukulele player. This one was my first not super cheap ukulele that I've owned so far. While its true that I've not owned many ukuleles to compare this one to, that doesn't take away from the fact that this ukulele is so comfortable to play. For a tenor, the action is surprisingly low, which i really love, and it has a really lovely mellow tone. The neck it a bit on the thin side, especially considering the size of the whole instrument, but it doesn't have a negative effect on how it plays. i really love this instrument, and i would highly recommend it.

            I know how to play the guitar a little but I'm just learning the ukulele. This Fender is very nice quality for the price point and I can even make it sound beautiful!

            Fender Tenor Ukulele

            By Karla Royster

            from Nashville, TN

            Comments about Fender Hau'oli Mahogany Tenor Ukulele:

            I have owned this ukulele close to a year, and absolutely love it. I got it just to learn on, but I also write and record with it, and it sounds great through a microphone. It has a clear sound with natural reverb and would DEFINITELY recommend it if you're looking to learn or just looking for a good ukulele without breaking the bank
            Does not seem to have a truss rod? I don't know if uke's normally do

            Comments about Fender Hau'oli Mahogany Tenor Ukulele:

            The ukulele came very quickly, in three days I seem to remember. I love the tone of this ukulele, so mellow without restringing for low G!

            Comments about Fender Hau'oli Mahogany Tenor Ukulele:

            The Bad:The laminated wood. I love real wood on ukes, and this doesn't have it. The fake turtleshell! The lowest frets are not that usable. Unless you've got some insane calluses.
            The Good:Exceptional playing. I like the sound it produces. You only have to tune it once a day. The tuning board. It's got this sick shape! No other ukulele has that top. The fret board. It's actually real mahogany. And the fret lines are chrome, which looks nice.It's good quality. Looking at the inside of it, you can tell it's not just a piece of junk.
            If you are interested in this uke, I would recommend not getting this one, but spending a bit extra money on the fenders koa wood ukulele. It solves most of the problems I find in this one. And it's extremely gorgeous, while this ones just average in looks.

            Can't put it down!

            from Ohio

            Comments about Fender Hau'oli Mahogany Tenor Ukulele:

            I'm primarily a guitarist and this is my first uke. I'm a big fan of Fender guitars, so I was excited to see them put out a line of ukuleles and had to try one. Overall, I love it. It looks great, sounds great, the gig bag is nice and looks well made. My only complaint is that it seems like the finish sanding was missed in a few places, mainly the back and sides of the headstock. You can't really tell by looking, but it feels pretty rough. All-in-all, it seems like a great instrument at a reasonable price
