Designed for Travel
The J-ukeTM US490CTE is Journey Instruments’ take on what a premium travel uke should be. This full-scale Thinline Soprano-size sitka/ebony travel ukulele is fitted with a super-cool scoopaway and premium appointments and tonewoods to deliver optimal tone and playability for ukulele players on-the go.
The J-ukeTM is made with a premium grade solid sitka top and engineered Ebony back and sides with sitka bracing. We use premium open-back tuners to keep the weight down. Ebony is a phenomenal tonewood with a clear and resonant tone and a shimmer that is truly eye-catching. The Walnut scoopaway gives great access to upper frets and just looks friggin’ cool. Walnut binding and rosette with matching bridge and fingerboard make for a distinctive and elegant ukulele look.
Paired with our JourneyTekTM ukulele travel case, the J-ukeTM becomes the most travel-friendly ukulele around. Designed with premium high-density polyethelyne foam, a reinforced neck pad, a ballistic nylon shell, and rubberized protective panels on the bottom, the JourneytekTM case is engineered for maximum instrument protection. But this is the only the beginning of an awesome travel bag. An abundance of daisy chains enables you to clip your ukulele on to any other backpack, and make it a chinch to clip it directly to other JourneyTekTM instrument and travel bags – or simply use the adjustable shoulder strap to comfortably carry your uke hands-free. The JourneyTekTM uke case comes with tons of storage space too! Our patented neck pockets enable you to store your “case candy,” digital accessories, and other essentials by taking advantage of the space on the sides of the instrument neck. The pleated main pocket expands to fit even more gear, and the expandable front mesh pocket gives you even more.
