The under-$150 Fender guitar

Fender Ukulele U'Uku Soprano

Just for fun, I wanted to find out what the absolute lowest-priced Fender branded guitar was. It's a ukulele. Specifically, the Fender Ukulele U'Uku Soprano. It's well under the $150 price point and anyone can afford it.

A kid's uke sells for $15 new. One that isn't a total piece of crap is the Mahalo U-30. One that's better than the U-30 is the Kala KA-15S.

Is the Fender the most expensive uke? Not even close. You could spend over $600 on a uke if you wanted to. And, of course, the Martin S1 is expensive. Why? No idea.

Anyway, yes, the under-$150 new Fender guitar exists. It's a uke. Now you can finally buy a Fender and still be able to pay the rent. 🙂

Oh, one more thing. If you want a uke that "looks more Fendery", see the Fender Mino'Aka. It has a Telecaster-style pegboard on it. It's also under $150.
