This uke from Epiphone takes everything that is cool about the Les Paul and turns it into an electro acoustic ukulele! From the great-looking heritage cherry sunburst finish to the electronics to the build of the instrument itself, the Epiphone Ukulele is totally uke-nique! And it's not just a novelty either - it is a quality instrument designed for professional use.
The first thing to note about the Les Paul Ukulele is the Flame Maple top which provides great resonance and a warm sound. Combined with a comfortable mahogany neck, 14:1 tuners and a 15" scale length, the precision of the Les Paul Uke means that it can be used as a serious instrument, unlike cheaper ukes which often suffer from intonation problems.
Finally, don't forget that you can plug in this Ukulele thanks to a built in pickup system so when you feel like you've mastered the uke, you can take the Les Paul Ukulele to your first ukelele gig! This fantastic instrument is loads of fun, and will give your music the Hawaiian party flavour that makes everybody smile!

Its Okoume fingerboard features a concert length 15" scale and 21 nickel/silver frets with a 16" fingerboard radius.

Unplugged, this Les Paul Uke has great natural acoustic tone and volume. But plug it in and it really comes alive. Equipped with a high-quality, piezo film pickup located under the saddle, both the natural tone of the strings as well as the sound of and the body are accurately captured and routed to it's durable all-metal, rim-mounted 1/4" output jack. Plug it into a PA System or amplifier and it sounds great! And loud too!
