Kala JTE/2TS Tenor Sunburst Ukulele
 
Kala's archtop uke is inspired by jazz guitar designs
June 16, 2014

In the decade since the company was founded in 2005, Kala has become one of the world’s largest manufacturers of ukuleles, building a wide variety of instruments with standard and non-standard designs, including this JTE/2TS tenor. Looking a bit like a miniature jazz guitar, this uke demonstrates how Kala has taken ideas from other instruments and applied them to its growing ukulele family. The JTE/2TS is built with an arched spruce top and mahogany back and sides. It has two f-holes, a sunburst finish, and is equipped with a Shadow Nanoflex pickup system that includes onboard controls for volume and tone. The JTE/2TS has a standard 17-inch tenor uke scale length, and it comes strung with Aquila Nylgut strings.

SPECS: Tenor ukulele. Arched spruce top. Mahogany back and sides. Mahogany neck. Rosewood fingerboard and bridge. 17-inch scale. Enclosed chrome tuning machines. Shadow Nanoflex electronics. Made in China. $424.99 list. kalabrand.com.
