The Barnes and Mullins BMUK2S Gresse Soprano Ukulele is a premium uke with some very nice features. This soprano sized ukulele sounds, looks and feels fantastic! What makes the Gresse range of ukuleles stand out so much is the use of stunning Spalted Maple for the back and sides of the instrument. Spalt Maple has a unique and striking grain making each piece dramatically different. This is paired up with a Solid Spruce top which gives the Barnes and Mullins Gresse Soprano Ukulele a sweet tone with good volume that will only get better with age. Maple is also used for the neck which has a very nice shape making for excellent playing comfort. Good quality machine heads and factory fitted Aquila Nylogut Strings keep tuning stable. The Barnes and Mullins Gresse Soprano Ukulele is finished in a high gloss which along with the quality of woods used give it a real premium look and feel.
