SPONSORED BY YOU

This is my new Godin Multiuke!

Here’s the description from the Godin site:

This Canadian made, tenor size, electro-acoustic Ukulele finds its home within the renowned Godin Multiac Series of guitars, known for exceptional amplified acoustic sound without feedback. The MultiUke follows suit, in its own “little” way, featuring a chambered mahogany body design, solid cedar top, rosewood fingerboard & bridge, custom voiced electronics and onboard preamp with 3-band EQ. Chambered Mahogany Body.

Solid cedar top (Natural).
Mahogany neck. 

Rosewood fingerboard & bridge.
Double-function truss rod. 

24” fingerboard radius.
17” Scale.
1.375” nut width.
Custom voiced RMC electronics & onboard preamp with 3-band EQ - treble, mid, bass and volume sliders. 
Finish: Natural High-Gloss

Basically, this ukulele is beautiful. The quality is amazing. The people who make it are awesome. And when I play it…I feel so GOOD. I can’t even describe it. I just immediately get into the music and end up playing for hours.

My hands/fingers need to be trained a little differently but I’m completely fine with that considering what this ukulele sounds like. 

I did a last minute performance at the Ukulele Expo in LA yesterday and it was such a gorgeous sound. I need to adjust the EQ a bit to trim off a bit of the high end sound but overall, beautiful.

So thankful to have a great support system that is 100% responsible for me owning this ukulele.

FUN PART OF THE POST:

This ukulele doesn’t have a name yet!!! 

I’m taking suggestions now. :D
