Fender Releases 2 Signature Ukuleles

992f57faa9dbe798f3dec5b61a99769c.jpgHailed by Rolling Stone as a €œpop prodigy€ Grace VanderWaal who sky rocketed to fame when she won America's Got Talent, has just collaborated with Fender, one of the world's leading musical instrument manufacturers, on a brand-new ukulele collection. Working closely with Fender, Grace has incorporated everything she loves about playing the ukulele live to her fans in creating the two designs in this new collection. From being stage ready with The Signature Ukulele which reflects Grace's boho - chic style, to the navy blue Moonlight Ukulele which is perfect to play by the beach or at home with your friends.

 €œWhat I think is cool about Fender, and what originally drew me to them, was the Fender electric guitar headstock, which I've never seen on another ukulele,€ said Grace. €œI feel like a Rockstar when I'm tuning it. I wanted these ukuleles to be pretty, but also have a great sound. Fender perfectly accomplished that and made my dream ukuleles come true. I'm seeing my passions come full circle. I think everyone has music inside them and my hope is that I can help them find it.€

Helping you start your musical journey and follow in Grace's footsteps, Fender has included a free trial of their new app, Fender Play, with the purchase of either the Signature of Moonlight ukulele. A brand new video-based guitar learning app that equips you with everything you need to learn the instrument, and promises to get complete beginners playing recognisable riffs in e64848c161441415c63c10be4b2c1ad0.jpgjust 22 minutes.
