Overview

The EW Concert Acoustic-Electric Ukulele from Ibanez is a sweet-toned, nylon-stringed instrument in a choice of luxurious tonewoods and built to stand the test of time.

Built on the concert-style platform and size, the EW comes in 3 tonewood flavors:
Cocobolo top, back, and sides - cocobolo is a true rosewood and produces tones with excellent power and sustain.
Koa top, back, and sides - koa is beautifully grained wood and produces a very bright sound with perhaps less volume than spruce.
Spruce top, mahogany back and sides - spruce is the most common wood in guitar tops and, combined with mahogany, produces a bright, punchy tone.

The EW ukulele has a rosewood bridge and fretboard that help improve sustain. The chrome Grover open-gear tuners offer precision tuning and keep the ukulele in key.

Dressed in a natural low-gloss finish, and featuring a desirable abalone rosette around the soundhole, the concert uke's natural beauty shimmers through, making it a 4-string of sweet looks and tone, no matter which one you choose.

Ibanez UK300T Preamp
The EW Concert Acoustic-Electric Ukulele is equipped with the UK-300T ukulele preamp, featuring a 2-band EQ for adjusting bass and treble. The preamp also includes a built-in onboard tuner to ensure stable performance every time you hit the stage.

The ukulele originated in 19th-century Hawaii. It gained great popularity in the U.S. during the early 20th century, and from there spread internationally. Ibanez ukuleles bring the rich, textured sounds of the islands to your fingertips.

Excellent Concert Ukulele but they could do a better job securing the wiring insides (which may vibrate if loose)

By Brian Chidichimo

from Bethesda, MD

I'ved purchased a few different models of Ukes, and this Ibanez is easily the best in this price range. The intonation is very good. the projection and volume is louder than my Fender Tenor model. One reviewer gave only one star due to the buzz. I would say this is not accurate. My ukulele had the same exact problem. I buzzed and vibrated horribly when I first got it. I nearly sent it back. but decided to inspect it first. I found that because this is an acoustic/electric model it has some wiring inside for the pickup and the tone controls, etc. I found that on mine, the wiring was bundled up and secured to the inside of the body with a stick on clip. the Clip had un-stuck and was allowing the wiring to vibrate big time. I pulled the clip off and tucked the wiring back into the Uke and it's been playing perfectly ever since. I guess I need to deduct a star for this problme, as they could have done a better job with securing the wires. But the Ukulele itself is the best sounding Uke I have to date, so I had to give it 4 stars.

Good where it counts

By Kevin Fenster

from Portland, OR

I've owned cheap uke's in the past but they never held up over time. I've wanted a uke that might endure but am unable to afford a high dollar instrument. This Ibanez looks great (as long as you don't look too close: over-sanded around banding and rough banding finish around cutout at the neck) and with a bit of string stretching, strumming love this Koa Uke sounds great and stays in tune as well as any costing 2-3x as much.

Bummer!

By Lou G

from Fresno, Ca

This is a beautiful instrument - but in looks only. The string buzz is horrendous! I was really upset because I liked the feel, balance, and looks of the instrument - but you cannot play it! The buzz of the strings (especially the E string) is so loud and prominent that it overpowers and ruins everything and anything that you play. This should be on a cheap dime store rack and not offered at any reputable music shop. I have nothing against Ibanez - in fact I own two Ibanez guitars that I really like - but this ukulele is embarrassing. I am sending it back right away.
