The 15-inch-scale-length ukulele is stage-ready, made of Sapele, emblazoned with Billie's signature blohsh symbol, with a Nato neck and flat walnut fingerboard with 16 frets, and is packed with a Fishman Kula preamp.
“The great thing about this ukulele is that the one you see Billie playing onstage in front of 30,000 people is the exact same one you can buy in the store for under $300,” Michael Schulz, Fender’s Head of Signature Artists, says in a statement.
While the ukulele might not exactly be the first instrument people think about when they hear Billie Eilish's music, it was the first instrument she learned how to play and is also featured on her tracks '8' and 'Party Favor.'
Billie Eilish and Fender are also donating to the Aloha Mele Fund, a newly-establish fund of the Hawaii Community Foundation, that supports coronavirus relief efforts for Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander communities in Hawaii. Fans may also donate to the effort here.
