Canadian brand, SEAGULL, well-known for their acoustic guitars, has released their first two soprano-sized electric ukuleles, the Uke Nylon SG Burst EQ (nylon string type) and Uke Steel SG Burst EQ (steel string type). Both models, which incorporate techniques cultivated in their acoustic guitar production, have an unusual through-neck structure. Equipped with open gear double machine heads (2 aside), they are designed so that the strings are straight from the bridge to the machine head. The flat rosewood fingerboard with no R is zero-fretted for stable tuning and pitch. Volume and tone controls are located on the body top. They have a calm, semi-gloss burnt amber burst finish combined with a pearloid pickguard.
