The natural essence and beauty of beautiful zebrawood, amplified with Fishman technology.

Lanikai is proud to introduce their Exotic ukuleles. Constructed with solid zebrawood, the SZW-CCA acoustic-electric concert ukulele produces a fresh, unique tone. Unadorned by synthetic enhancements, this series captures the pure essence and beauty of the natural world.

The concert-size ukulele is slightly larger than a standard-sized soprano uke. The result is a slightly deeper tone, and more volume than its smaller counterpart.

The Lanikai Exotic acoustic-electric uke features a solid top, back, and sides, slotted headstock, Grover gold-plated tuning machines, rosewood fingerboard and bridge, maple and rosewood skunk stripe and an ovangkol neck. A custom wide-bone nut was used to increase the string spacing, making this Lanikai ukulele more comfortable for guitarists who are expanding their sonic palette with the ukulele.

The cutaway Lanikai SZW-CCA concert uke comes equipped with the Fishman Sonicore ukulele preamp and Sonitone pickup. With volume and tone controls mounted in the sound hole, this concert ukulele is truly a performance driven instrument.

The Lanikai SZW-CCA ukulele is strung with Aquila Nylgut strings.

    It only played well on the first few frets. I returned it then bought a Kala for less money at a local store that played and sounded much better.

                Very Pretty instrument.Good construction and sound. After sanding the saddle down considerably the action became usable. Put a thin strip of wood between saddle and under-saddle transducer to mute attack click.

                Comments about Lanikai SZW-CCA Solid Zebrawood Concert Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Ukulele:

                IF you get the right one, this is a great ukulele! (I replaced the high "g" string with a low "G".)
                It has a beautiful tone....but the volume is a bit soft. The Fishman pick is nice....except the controls
                are located inside the sound hole.

                MAKE SURE YOU GET THE RIGHT ONE! If you get one that has a problem, return it until youj get one that's right.
                Beautiful zebrawood with nice workmanship.

                Gold-plated Grover tuners are really nice and work well.

                Fishman pickup works well.

                Note: this ukulele has a wider nut and the strings a spaced farther apart than usual. This could make it better for guitar players, but could take a little while fo regular uke players to adjust.
                The first one I received had a buzz/rattle and the finish wasn't good. The wood was a bit rough and
                looked ragged where the top was attached to the sides. I called Musician's Friend and they immediately made arrangements for me to return it. (Excellent service....!)

                The replacement they sent was really nice! The fit and finish were just great...intonation was right on the money...."action" was just about perfect.
                I got this "on sale" for a super price. At the regular price, this ukulele is over-priced, but if you can get it on sale, it's a great deal. I gave this a "10" because I got it on sale with a 10% off coupon...so it was priced right.
