Risa LP Tenor Electric Ukulele Review

good day to you it is review day and
I’ve wanted to feature this on go-to
ukulele for years now finally got around
to getting hold of one on loan from
stones music the distributor this is the
Risa LP tenor electric ukulele and it is
stunning to look at I think you’ll agree
sorry about the focus going out though
it’s very shiny it’s an electric tenor
built in the Les Paul style I’m not
calling it the Les Paul it’s the LP it’s
built on the Les Paul style so double
bat shape with that cutaway it looks
like a Les Paul now before we get into
it I’ve said before I’m not a huge fan
of ukuleles that are built to look like
guitars but that’s usually when they’re
built a lot like guitars for the sake of
it either they’re built badly or the
belt along looks but don’t sound good as
ukuleles reser or a German brand who do
the unusual and have not let me down
with instruments that they’ve made
before the very high quality and this is
renowned to be high-quality but let’s
take a further look at it so as a sake
Les Paul shape all mahogany body two
pieces on that top which is dropped on
to an old solid mahogany body that holds
the chambers which contains the pickups
and the electrics all finished on a Goss
and this is the cherry sunburst they
also do it let’s back out sunburst this
is the tenor they also do it in a
longneck soprano as well and it looks
like a Les Paul curved top it’s
absolutely beautiful the dose is
wonderful I like everything about it
okay there’s one or two little knock
marks in the wood which irritate but
they don’t really change anything about
it and that’s it it doesn’t really need
much more decoration other than that
creme edge binding around the top and
it’s it’s a lovely beast it’s a really
lovely Beast and on the back it’s just
deep red with the control cavities to
get at the wiring here right okay let’s
get into it because not going to run
like a normal ukulele review this one so
we’ve got micro saddles here which I
like those on Fender guitars would like
to have seen that be a tuner Matic
bridge which is more like the Gibson Les
Paul but as
that space was the issue there because
they’re quite fiddly and you need extra
tailpiece controlled controlling these
two humbucker pickups which are made for
research or not I don’t believe just off
the shelf
Chinese rubbish in black surrounds which
are adjustable for height on treble and
bass like an electric guitar and
controlling those you’ve got volume and
tone controls for both and a selector
switch allowing you to use the neck
pickup or the bridge pickup or indeed
both as a pair if you know your electric
guitars
that’s a nice setup and it’s really good
it’s really good I can’t stop looking at
it up to the neck this is made of
mahogany stain in the same red cherry
it’s a set neck so it’s not bolted on
like things like the epithermal as paul
were a couple of strap buttons as well
obviously which you’ll need because this
is a substantial beast on weight
although nicely balanced yeah so
mahogany neck it’s rounded in profile on
the back and it’s very narrow at 34 mil
at the nut but that doesn’t actually
bother me because these are steel
strings and a much thinner than nylon
strings and you’re still getting 27
between G and a really comfortable
that’s top topped in an unspecified dark
hardwood with cream edge binding you get
a bit of an excessive number of these
parallelogram or whatever called trapeze
ordinal inlay squaring lies in purl
because there’s one at the first the
third the fifth the seventh the 10th to
12th and so on
I found them quite distracting when
playing because I couldn’t really
remember where it was
you do get black side dots though as
well which is nice to see it’s a nice
neck the frets 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11
12 13 14 15 to the body 16 17 18 19 in
total you also get a zero fret up here
just after the nut which sets the height
right that’s good to see because often I
find with steel strung electrics is that
unless you’ve got it absolutely set up
right at that nut they just play out a
tune because you bend the strings too
easily that’s a good touch beyond that
black nut and all that’s made of it’s a
Gibson
esque shaped headstock with a bit of a
scrollwork up at the top holding the
recent logo it’s based in black gloss
and it’s got a truss rod adjustment
cover there which is nice to see cuz
this is steel strong tension so truss
rod is probably quite important for
setting the neck relief which on this is
alright
you know I like that I like it much more
than the last pull Epiphone headstock
because it’s not as narrow and it
doesn’t look skinny and weird tuners
excellent quality Grover
brand sealed chrome gears with kidney
shaped buttons it comes with the middle
four strings of an electric guitar set
of tens go and have a look at the
written review below all the details in
there I’m not going to bore you with
that there tens in the middle and it’s
set up for low G they’re still strong
and that G is wearing away on string but
they’re all steel so we’re not using
normal regular ukulele conventions yeah
there we are
I’d actually prefer Elevens and find
these a little bit skinny on the fingers
but that’s personal preference it comes
with a padded gig bag that’s turbid we
are you can get an optional hardcase
with it and the price of these is about
five hundred and fifty five hundred and
sixty pounds so it’s a serious bit of
money but anyone who knows electric
guitars knows that if you go really
cheap and this is where this review
people will say well I’ve got a voice on
or things like that and it’s just as
good you know it is enough played them
they’re not as good because it’s not
just about the looks and the build and
this is really nice all over it really
is nice all over but it’s about the
quality of this bit and what’s going on
down here and that’s often where solid
steel electrics can be a real letdown I
do like the build there’s one or two
design cues I don’t like I think I think
the fret markers are excessive I don’t
like that the selector switch is here
because it’s where I tend to strum and
I’m finding myself catching it again
that’s just a personal minor niggle I’m
gonna plug it in I’m not actually going
to do a lot of playing of it because
it’s built really well and I’ll tell you
this it’s extremely nice and like to
play on the sing aboard that zero frets
really helping with
intonation it doesn’t squeeze out the
tomb when you play it it’s a very fast
neck
the reason I’m not gonna plug it in and
do a lot by I’m gonna plug it in but I’m
not gonna do a lot of play is because it
depends what you’re plugging it into now
this is a serious instrument you could
plug this into a big Marshall stack
which I don’t have here used to own one
it’s being plugged into a Yamaha thr
blues ukulele blues portable amp they’re
very good
this is not an instrument that you’re
going to get really much out of if you
plug it into a little honey tone nine
volt that’s not the point of it so what
you hear here is just basically what
that Yamaha is doing it depends what you
plug it into and the sky’s the limit
that’s that that’s the nice thing about
it pick it’s cool so it makes very
little noise unplugged obviously sounds
like an unplugged electric guitar into
the jack socket and I’ve got this on a
completely flat setting no a clean
Channel and it sounds like a clean
you can play it’s a jazz
you know I’m sounding like underwhelmed
but that’s not what this is about
you
one thing I will say about it the tome
has a really nice sweet
well doesn’t have a really nice sweet to
it is the volume which is kind of off
and then ramps up really quickly and
then doesn’t really do much
I wish there was a lot more on that it’s
a minor growth though you can control it
on the amp or you can run it through a
volume but that’s not what this is about
what this is about is you’re going to
put it into you know add some game
that’s what and that is where it’s fun
it’s it’s it’s it’s a nice clean
I can have hours and hours and hours of
fun with this it’s really really well
made I mean you can style
practically
so study
sustained sustained sounds like spinal
tap still going still going that’s what
you’d expect from steel strands look I’m
not gonna give you as I say it’s not
going to be about the play this is just
really well-made take it from me it gets
a very high score and deservedly so the
reset LP tenor electric ukulele
available from rhesus stockists I think
it’s absolutely stellar I think you
could really have fun with this through
a set of pedals and a decent stack and
pure fire equally with a little
amplifier you can have a lot of fun with
it as well I love it I really love it
it gets a highly recommended it’s really
well built
I currently so much more there we are
reset LP Turner by next week check the
rent review below that’s where all the
detail knows better pictures more detail
or go into some of the history of it
like kind of thing and do consider the
patreon because it really helps me out I
will see you again very soon
