This is a beautiful Laminate Willow Short Scale Teenie Sopranisimo! They are SUPER CUTE! They come in really cool, vibrant colors. So you have the classic yellow-ish natural , Red, Green, Purple, and Blue laminate willow. I have one and it fits in my little canvas bag and goes everywhere with me! The scale is small! If a soprano is too small for you, this ukulele will be too small for you! Really give it some thought before you order. I included a picture that shows the Soprano, Sopranino, and Sopranissimo scale so you can see how small it is compared to the Soprano. The teenie tiny scale is not for everyone, but if you have been hankering for a teenie ukulele that is still SUPER playable and for the size has a BIG sound! Then this ukulele is for you! I will post links to vids at the bottom! With the stock strings this ukulele sounds best tuned to D. So same chord shapes, but your uke will be 2 steps higher. So A, D, F#, B! If you tune it lower, sometimes the 2nd string can be buzzy and the intonation is off. So please keep in mind, like most short-scale ukes of this teenie tiny size, you want to tune it up!
Now, lets talk set-up! With the short-scale the set up is very important! VERY IMPORTANT! And your sopranissimo will play slick if it comes from me. Set up is ALWAYS included and drop-shipping is NEVER done!
It is great for travel or even for a every day knock around uke! I bring mine everywhere! It has been all around London, it has been all around Vegas, it gets thrown into the car all the time!
