        Exotic woods and Fishman technology provide a performance-driven tenor ukulele.

        With its solid monkey pod body, the Lanikai SMP-TCA cutaway tenor ukulele has incredible projection and exotic appeal. Its gold-plated Grover tuning machines ensure long hours of stress-free strumming.

        The tenor ukulele body produces the clear ukulele tone, with a bit more projection than the standard soprano body. It's ideal for on-stage performance—whether rhythmic strumming, or working out some inspired melodies, the projection and clarity of this Lanikai uke is significant.

        Unadorned by synthetic enhancements, the SMP-TCA Lanikai tenor ukulele captures the pure essence and beauty of the natural world. Lanikai's Exotic series features a solid top, back, and sides, slotted headstock, 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 the Lanikai SMP-TCA tenor ukulele more comfortable for guitarists who are expanding their sonic palette with the ukulele. And thanks to the cutaway design, you have comfortable access to the acoustic-electric uke's entire fretboard.

        The acoustic-electric ukulele comes equipped with a Fishman Sonitone undersaddle pickup, and a Fishman Sonicore preamp.

        With the easy playability, and included instruction booklet written by renowned ukulele instructor Mary Lou Dempler, you will be playing in a matter of minutes. If you have never played ukulele before, get ready for a world of fun. The ukulele is an addicting instrument that can and will be taken everywhere. If you can play one ukulele you can play them all.

        The Lanikai SMP-TCA tenor ukulele is strung with Aquila Nylgut strings and includes a Lanikai Learn to Play instruction booklet.

        Poor Craftsmanship

        Comments about Lanikai SMP-TCA Solid Monkey Pod Tenor Cutaway Ukulele:

        Sending it back to MF.
        Solid wood. Great strings, tuners, and electronics. Nice sound.
        Craftsmanship is poor. Visible scratches in clearcoat finish. Incomplete sanding and several blemishes/marks/dents on the body.
        A bit expensive given the overall quality.

        Me TOO!

        Comments about Lanikai SMP-TCA Solid Monkey Pod Tenor Cutaway Ukulele:

        I ordered this one, and I was super-excited to get it. When it arrived, I strummed it and it gave a harsh buzzing sound. There were a few dents on it as well.

        flaws in the wood

        By Yumadayz

        from Okinawa, Japan

        Comments about Lanikai SMP-TCA Solid Monkey Pod Tenor Cutaway Ukulele:

        I ordered the first one which came back with a small dent in the body on the back side. They replaced it with another one of the same style and make. It had a slight crack in the body on the top. I am very disappointed with the quality I've seen in this ukulele. Not sure if I'd recommend this brand. I'm returning the second uke.
