Billie Eillish and the ukulele, it's a long story. This instrument is her first love, the first she learned to play, long before the guitar. She signed a collaboration with guitar brand Fender and worked on the design of the brand's new instrument, available today for a whopping $ 300.
The colors, matte black and gold (but it's more stylish to say “gold”), stick to the singer's style – or rather to the color of her hair with her famous tie and dye. The wood chosen comes from an African tree, the sapele, but the instrument is also made of walnut.

Playing Billie Eilish on the Ukulele
Six of the singer's tracks are now live on Fender Play so her fans can play her tracks on this ukulele. The Hawaiian history of this instrument seems important to Billie Eilish, who donated to the Aloha Mele Fund of the Hawaii Community Foundation. Donations are used to raise funds for NGOs providing support and relief to Hawaiian and Pacific Island communities during this time of health crisis.
