The Mandy Harvey Learn To Play Signature Series Tenor Ukulele is made of Satin Mahogany and includes white binding and original artwork reminiscent of 1800s Swiss folk art. The delicate vine pattern with birds and flowers was created by Mandy’s sister, making this a very personal, one-of-a-kind piece of art.
“I’ve been fortunate enough to have people in my life that have continually encouraged me to try—to push past self-doubt and persist. My grandmother was one of those people. She cultivated a desire in me to do my best through encouragement and her confidence in what I could achieve. The artwork on my Signature Series Tenor Ukulele was inspired by my grandmother and the beautiful gardens she always kept. It’s an image of growth and persistence and symbolic of what we can achieve if we always remember to ‘Try.’”
