Here's what Fender say about the Montecito Tenor Koa Ukulele
Inspired by the California home of many celebrities, this ukulele's screen-ready looks and headline grabbing features could only have one name—the Montecito Ukulele. Constructed completely from koa, this tenor-sized uke has a rich, sonorous tone, that matches its sumptuously elegant aesthetic.
The solid top provides enhanced resonance and sustain, along with incredible warmth and well-balanced projection. The Montecito's koa body is complemented by blue-green abalone top binding and a bound back and fingerboard for a refined look. Other features include a no-tie bridge for quick, easy string changes, a bone nut and saddle for superior intonation, an abalone rosette, vintage-style closed-back tuning machines and a 4-in-line Tele® headstock for that unmistakably classic Fender look.

- Abalone-bound top, bound back and fingerboard; abalone rosette

California Coast ukuleles feature a convenient no-tie bridge, making string changes a breeze compared to traditional ukulele bridges which require special knotting.
An acoustic instrument with a solid top resonates more because it's uninterrupted by lamination or vibration-killing adhesives—it vibrates with organic consistency.
Distinctly elegant with superior tone, this instrument features an all-koa body with plenty of midrange warmth and top-end sparkle.
ABALONE PURFLING AND ROSETTE
The eye-catching abalone-bound top and abalone rosette found on this instrument complement the natural beauty of its all-koa body.

This ukulele's headstock replicates the Telecaster's iconic headstock shape for a dash of authentic Fender vibe.
