Business Report: Takamine Guitar Company

HONOLULU (HAWAIINEWSNOW) - We're going to be talking about ukuleles this morning. I've got some ukulele news from a company called Takamine Guitar Company. It's bringing out an ukulele especially for kids who want to learn the instrument.

The new ukulele was developed with Jake Shimabukuro, who explains that most ukuleles are either really good ones made in limited quantities, or cheap ones made for tourists that don't hold tuning very well and are hard to learn on. The Takamine Migm ukulele is designed to fill a need in the middle ground, affordable, but better than those vacation trinket instruments.

Takamine is a Japanese guitar company but some Americans who play Takamines are garth brooks, Glenn Frey of the Eagles, and Bruce Springsteen.
