Unless you’ve been sleeping under a rock somewhere, youâ€™ve heard Train’s incredibly catchy hit single “Hey, Soul Sister” that’s all over the airwaves.
The crisp and melodic underpinning of the acoustic instrumentation is by guitarist Jimmy Stafford playing a Fender Ukulele Nohea with a Koa body and Rosewood fingerboard. Jimmy has taken two of these Ukes on the road with Train, each outfitted with a custom Fishman amplification system.
Asked about the instruments, Stafford said, â€œI’ve been using Fender Ukuleles in the studio and on tour for the past year now performing our hit song “Hey, Soul Sister.” Fender and Fishman teamed up to make a really great instrument comparable to some of the finest Hawaiian Ukulele’s out there. I have a feeling I’ll be using this Ukulele to play this song for the rest of my life!!!â€?
