This uke is modelled after a vintage archtop guitar. It just screams fun. It has F holes, archtop, sunburst finish, spruce top, mahogany back and sides and rosewood fingerboard. Visually, it is spectacular. It also has a pickup. Overall, a very cool ukulele which certainly steers away from the traditional design of ukuleles. It has exceptional play-ability as do all Kala ukes. I'd say those musicians looking for something vintage would adore this uke.
