      Ready for the beach or the stage with a crisp tone and Fishman electronics.

      Used to make ukuleles for over a century, rare Hawaiian koa wood is especially prized for its distinctive curly grain. Grown mostly on the big island of Hawaii, these woods have a crisp tone unlike any other. The Lanikai Curly Koa Series CK-TEK Tenor Ukulele with Fishman Kula Electronics features this Hawaiian wood for its top, back and sides. The neck has a rosewood fingerboard with 19 frets that are fully accessable thanks to the cutaway body of this tenor ukulele. The CK-TEK comes with die-cast tuners and the Fishman Kula pickup/preamp system.

      Fishman Kula preamp
      This upgraded electronics system is perfect for the professional player. The sleek design of this preamp lends itself well to the ukulele and fits everything you could ask for in a preamp. With a three-band EQ, you’ll be prepared to please any crowd by adjusting the low mid and high range to your liking. Never search for your clip-on tuner again. The Kula preamp features an onboard chromatic tuner so you can tune up wherever you go.

            I own several Ukulele's as well as guitars and other instruments. I'm always looking for quality when I purchase any instrument. This is the whole package for your buck. The woods tone and looks, the pre-amp, the built in tuner, and Fisher electronics, great strings and nice selection of cases to choose from. I'm not done, I will be purchasing more of Lanikai's products in the future and highly recommend them to everyone.

              Comments about Lanikai Curly Koa Series CK-TEK Tenor Ukulele with Fishman Kula Electronics:

              First freya into the Ukulele market but an experience acoustic guitar purchaser and I wanted to make sure I got something above beginner level. Something that can grow with me for pro gigs. This isn't it.
              It's an extremely nice looking instrument with very decent tone. Overall design and look is good. When you nitpick it becomes a disaster. Now I was given a heavily discounted price but ordinarily people are spending almost half a G-note with no case and Lanakai should be embarrassed to have let this go.
              5 "dings", bridge was scratched, sanding marks visible on headstock going diagonally to the grain, binding separating everywhere and the action was abysmal. It looked like a cheap store brand acoustic.

              As you may have expected, Musican's Friend was on it like a tick on a hound dog. They took this back in a New York minute and now that they have the pictures I took, I hope they really do inform Lanakai customer service about this poo.

              These are not "hand crafted" but I think they removed that term in the description. I was mostly disappointed. I ordered the Kremono Coco Tenor Uke as a replacement. More on that later. They didn't do much better, but I was sent a prototype. MF had no idea Kremona sent them the first batch of these. I contacted Kremona and they gave me that info, but again, that's another review.

              Bottom line: the other great reviews of this could be telling the truth. If this was set up better and had no imperfections I would have kept it and probably gone on to enjoy, but seeing these problems makes you suspect that this is not isolated. This would never get through Martin, Yamaha, Cordoba or Fender - in the same price range. I strongly suspect Lanakai is simply a lower end, nice quality beginner Uke that should be priced down another 30%

              Comments about Lanikai Curly Koa Series CK-TEK Tenor Ukulele with Fishman Kula Electronics:

              I play guitar and piano and have been wanting a ukulele for a while now. I considered a cheaper uke for my first, but after much research I decided this was the one for me. The fact that it's a tenor is great because its slightly larger which eases in playing if transitioning from guitar, and it also has a fuller sound than the smaller types. The pickup is amazing because there is no need to mic it while performing. Also, it's beautiful and bottom line a great beginner ukulele.

                    Gorgeous wood. Very striking appearance as the tone of the wood changes with the angle that you look at it. The tone quality and volume of this uke are outstanding. Very well built in indonesia, surprised to say that but I am amazed at the quality of this uke for the price. Nice smooth seams, straight neck, perfect action. The electronics are very nice as well. tuner works great. If you're thinking about buying this, don't hesitate, you will not be disappointed!

                        Great uke. Built very well and beautiful wood. All the seams are tight and smooth and the neck is nice and straight. Action is just right for a uke. Will replace tuners however because i put grovers on everything. Very nice tone and all the electronics work great. This uke has good volume as well. Much more than my other ukes. Buy it!
