With springtime coming just around the corner (for some of you, anyway), what better instrument than the ukulele for strumming on the porch on a balmy day?
Luckily, the folks at Fender agree and have partnered with us to offer one of their brand new ukes — the Ukulele Hau’oli, to be exact — for one lucky winner.
Ukuleles are enjoying renewed popularity, with exquisite sounds and designs that are a far cry from mere musical toys.
Originally built by Portuguese immigrants to the Hawaiian Islands in the 1880s, the small guitar-like instruments produced a lilting sound that instantly evoked the lush South Pacific atmosphere of their island homeland. Today, ukes can be heard in everything from Top 40 pop to folk and everything in between.
Check out this fine example of the very nice Fender Ukulele Hau’oli:

The Fender Ukulele Hau’oli features all laminate mahogany, concert shape with 19 frets, an awesome Tele headstock, plus Aquila Nylagut Tenor Wound C strings. The instrument also bears an acrylic abalone rosette, scalloped fan bracing, a bone string nut and a rosewood bridge with bone saddle. It's valued at $229.
Contest ends April 30, 2014. Enter here (don't forget to share!).
