Billie Eilish launches own signature ukelele with Fender

08 September 2020, 14:14 | Written by Cerys Kenneally

Billie Eilish has partnered up with Fender to release her own signature ukelele.

Eilish's signature ukelele has a built-in preamp, and is covered with Eilish's "blohsh" pattern.

The ukelele was the first instrument that Eilish picked up, as she explains, "The ukulele was the first instrument I learned. It’s where I started writing, and where I found new ways of writing that I had never tried before. It inspires a different kind of writing. The rules of the ukulele are simple, and basically if you know three chords you can play almost any song. I hope my Fender Signature ukulele inspires people to start playing, and start writing; anyone can do it."

Billy Martinez, VP of Fender’s Category Manager Acoustic & Squier Divisions, said, "We are extremely honoured to collaborate with Billie on her debut signature Fender ukulele. She’s inspired a new generation of players and now this uke gives her fans around the world a new reason to get excited about playing. Billie established herself at a young age, transforming the music industry and inspiring people both young and old. She is unconditionally herself and the ukulele she designed is a perfect reflection of her spirit and iconic style."

To pay tribute to the ukelele's origin of Hawaii, Eilish and Fender have also made a donation to Aloha Mele Fund, which will be distributed to nonprofit organisations supporting coronavirus relief efforts for Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander communities in Hawaii.

Billie Eilish's signature ukelele is available to buy from shop.fender.com now for £239.
