Hollywood Style- Concert body with a smaller lower bout and a 15" scale fingerboard. This narrow waisted concert style was first built in the early 1900s by the mainland manufacturer Schireson Brothers. The body is close to a soprano size, but with a 15" concert scale neck. Includes large choice of in-stock woods. Plastic binding on top, back and soundhole, Grover geared tuners, Spanish cedar neck, Tusq® nut and compensated saddle, rosewood or ebony fingerboard and bridge, dot inlays on fingerboard. The Hollywood Style Ukulele is a classic example of the perfect figure-eight shape, with a full and bright tone, great for picking or for strumming. Includes case or gig bag.
