Fender Montecito Tenor Ukulele
Montecito Tenor Ukulele Overview by GAK
Inspired by the California home of many celebrities, this ukulele’s screen-ready looks and headline grabbing features could only have one name—the Montecito Ukulele. Constructed completely from koa, this tenor-sized uke has a rich, sonorous tone, that matches its sumptuously elegant aesthetic.
The solid top provides enhanced resonance and sustain, along with incredible warmth and wellbalanced projection. The Montecito’s koa body is complemented by blue-green abalone top binding and a bound back and fingerboard for a refined look. Other features include a no-tie bridge for quick, easy string changes, a bone nut and saddle for superior intonation, an abalone rosette, vintage-style closed-back tuning machines and a 4-in-line Tele® headstock for that unmistakably classic Fender look.

Here's some information on Ukulele body sizes:
The largest of our body styles, tenor ukuleles have a rich, sonorous voice, while their extended range offers a familiar playing feel and more musical possibilities.
A concert-sized ukulele is slightly larger than a soprano, giving it an extended range that feels familiar to guitarists, and a punchy voice that’s perfect for ensemble work.
Perfect for beginners or players with smaller hands while still providing classic uke sound, soprano ukuleles are the smallest available body size.
