The Tanglewood TUJ2CE Exotic Java Concert Electro Ukulele features a mixture of exotic timber offering a unique aesthetic and superb tone. The Java Concert Uke is crafted from a range of carefully selected tonewoods including solid koa, mahogany, rosewood, and maple. This stunning blend of timber delivers bright sparkle, rich distinct warmth, and consistent great sound. Its stunning body has a smooth, curvaceous concert shape which provides an easy and comfortable playing experience. The concert body shape has extended frets making it favourable among ukulele soloists, with its extended range it enables players to perform more technical skills. The Exotic Java Concert comes equipped with Tanglewood electronics, making this affordable uke stage ready and ideal for the gigging musicians.

The Java TUJ2CE features a concert body shape, which offers rich and clear sound. The concert has 20 frets and has become the choice of preference for ukulele soloists due to its extended range. The concert shape enables players to perform more technical skills, whilst maintaining classic ukulele tone. Its cutaway design enables players to reach more challenging chords with equal ease, and gives players the full range of the fingerboard to explore.

The Tanglewood Java Concert Uke features a solid koa top, coupled with mahogany back and sides to provide a really rich, well-balanced sound. Koa produces bright attack and sweet-rich tones, producing a warmer sound the more you play, resulting in a warm rounded sparkle. The koa top is contrasted beautifully by the mahogany back and sides, offering a meaty mid-range, producing punchy, 'woody' tones with plenty of depth and complexity that will please most playing styles. Mahogany is used a lot in the acoustic world, because it is relatively economical, durable, attractive, easy to work with, and resonant. Mahogany also contains distinct character of soft warmth, but is well balanced with a bite of its own. The Java Concert will also deliver a focused, punchy mid-range, thick well-defined tone, and sings sweet sparkling highs with plenty of characterised warmth.

The reason why many ukulele necks are made from mahogany is because the wood responds greatly to picking styles, strumming, and various finger techniques with equal ease. The mahogany neck is topped with a rosewood fingerboard that delivers a warm, bright, and sparkly tone that really shines through when using finger picking techniques.

The Exotic Java Concert comes equipped with Tanglewood's own preamp and on-board tuner, offering amplified ukulele sound in a compact, easy to use system. The TUT EQ features both volume and tone rotary controls, and built-in tuner for precise tuning and personalised tone control.
