JHS’s Laka range of ukuleles has been joined by a pair of bass versions – the Laka Bass Uke in Mahogany and Koa.
The mahogany version actually uses a combination of mahogany and sapele and features a mahogany neck and fretless rosewood fingerboard. JHS says it is easy to play: ‘and provides impressive tone both acoustically and through the onboard Fishman Clásica II pre-amp system.’ RRP £219
The Laka Bass Uke Koa sells for RRP £269 and features an acacia koa body with a black binding and abalone rosette; It is also a fretless and comes with Aquilla strings and a Fishman Clásica II pre-amp system. Info: www.jhs.co.uk
