Top 5 Electric Ukuleles

The time has come for you to get overdrive!

by Kevin Rossi

If you are looking for a way to kick your ukulele playing experience into overdrive, then you have come to the right place! Whether you are looking to do some serious shredding, or just want to add a new sound to your uke library, these five electric ukes will rock your world.

Flight Pathfinder Solid Body Electric Tenor Ukulele

From the flamed maple veneer on the body to the roasted maple neck, the Flight Pathfinder is one cool-looking instrument. It comes fitted with both a humbucker pickup, and a single-coil pickup, giving you access to a range of tones, and has a tenor length scale. Plus, it comes with a chord and Flight padded gig bag!

Risa TE-432-BB Tenor Tele T-Style Electric Ukulele

One of three electric ukuleles from Risa that imitates a famous guitar design, the Rise TE-432 Tenor Tele is available in butterscotch (my favorite), seafoam green, and all black. Built to look like the Fender Telecaster, the TE-432 is made with pine wood, which gives it a crisp/bright sound just like the instrument it is modeled after.

Risa LP-363-MH-TS Soprano Les Paul LP-Style Electric Ukulele

The second Risa built to imitate a famous guitar design is the Rise LP-363 Les Paul. Its guitar counterpart is famously played by many guitarists, including Slash, Led Zepplin’s Jimmy Page, and, as the name implies, Les Paul himself. Available in black, tobacco sunburst, and cherry sunburst, this electric uke comes in soprano size, making it semi-unique among electric ukes which normally come in tenor.

If you are looking for a more compact electric instrument, the Risa LP-363 is the uke for you!

Risa ST-432-BK Tenor Strat ST-Style Electric Ukulele

The third and final Risa electric uke designed to emulate a famous guitar is the Risa ST-432 Teno Strat. Even if you don’t know much about guitars you probably recognize this design. Made to look like the Fender Stratocaster, this electric uke is available in either Olympic white or black and is made of solid adder wood, just like the guitars.

Flight Vintage Goldtop Centurion GT Solid Body Tenor

For our last entry, we’ve got another Flight ukulele – the Flight Vintage Goldtop Centurion GT Solid Body Tenor. Just like the Flight Pathfinder, the Centurion comes with a chord and Flight padded gig bag, but unlike the pathfinder, this one is equipped with two double humbucker pickups.

Well, there you have it, the top five electric ukuleles! I hope you enjoyed this article and may be found yourself a new uke to add to your collection.

Hi, I’m slightly surprised that you haven’t included any non steel strung ukuleles (such as the solid body Snail SEU series) in your selection of ‘Top 5 electric ukuleles’. They are arguably closer to the ukulele concept and less like ‘baby guitars’, and, I think, well worth including.
