The Limited Edition oil-can, steel strung electric ukuleles from Bohemian, maintain all the features that have made these stunning instruments extremely popular with musicians far and wide.
Constructed from high quality steel, each oil-can body is visually striking, with fine detailed, hi-spec, durable vinyl-wrap graphics in three new and unique designs that include Bohemian branded ‘Surf Wax’, ‘Motor Oil’ and ‘Moonshine’.
Aside from the stunning visual concept, Bohemian ukuleles are lightweight and compact, allowing effortless access to all 19 frets of the Lignum Rosa fingerboard. The neck itself features an extended tenon design and travels the full length of the oil-can body, whilst an internal basswood structure, counterbalances the ukulele’s playing position and enhances natural sustain and output. Unplugged, these cool instruments also have enough volume for unamplified practicing.
With one single coil pickup housed within a natural ‘tone chamber’ the Limited Edition models, like all Bohemian oil-can ukuleles, are little tone monsters that deliver a staggering range of harmonically rich and clear, bell-like ukulele tones, with an output powerful enough to drive effects for a diverse range of sound enhancements.
Bohemian is also committed to building ukuleles sustainably by using less lumber than a traditional uke, with the necks coming from sustainable forests or reclaimed woods, and bodies made partially from recycled materials. Additionally, Bohemian plant one tree with every order received through their partner, Trees for the Future, an organisation dedicated to improving the livelihoods of impoverished farmers by revitalising degraded lands.
Whilst the portability and novelty concept is in abundance and speaks for itself, Bohemian oil-can ukuleles can be seen at camp fire parties and on big stage arenas played by professionals around the world.
