      I ordered this uke because it seemed like a nice middle of the road instrument. The reviews were mostly very good. Overall I'm pleased, but like one other reviewer, I can't keep the 'E' string in tune, and it's going sharp, not flat like one would expect from new strings. The tuners are very smooth. The sound quality is good overall. The back has a mark on it that looks like a small patch, but it does not affect the sound, so I live with it. Also there is a scratch on the back that can only be seen when the light hits it just right. Finally, the description said it came with an instruction book. Mine did not, but Musician's Friend is going above and beyond by sending me a replacement.

      This was on SDOTD a while back - I had high hopes for this but I would rather have a Fender Nohea - (I gave a Nohea to my GF a couple of years back and it's a great instrument). The rough fret ends are a bummer as is the sharp binding mentioned in another review. I don't mind the satin finish (and you can do some cool snare effects by strumming with your pinky extended!) but it just feels unfinished in general.

      It is very pretty and the tone is good but the intonation is off except the E string.

      There are so many ukes on the market now I would look elsewhere - I have played some other Lanikais that were better values than this.

          I bought this uke for my wife who wanted to learn to play. She absolutely loved it, especially the Koa wood surface and the overall quality and design of the instrument. She found it easy to play and has been enjoying her practicing. I find the instrument to be well constructed and a great introductory guitar for those who want to learn to play the uke.

            Comments about Lanikai CK-C Concert Ukulele:

            I got this ukulele about 3 months ago and I absolutely love it. I decided to go with the concert size since I had already learned a little bit on a cheap soprano and since I'm primarily a guitarist, I thought it would be more comfortable. This ukulele sounds fantastic and plays smooth as butter. It does not, however, look like the picture. They must've picked their best one ever for that. If you look at the picture for the Lanikai CK-T, that is a better idea of what the wood is gonna look like. No complaints though, it's still a beautiful ukulele and the maple binding takes it to another level. It comes with Aquila Nylgut strings and they make this uke really come alive. I won't use any other kind of uke strings.

            Comments about Lanikai CK-C Concert Ukulele:

            I find the instrument to be decent but for the price, 2 and 1/2 times the price of lu21c, the sound and playability are no different. The instrument is beautiful but I did expect it to sound better. If you have extra money for looks, then buy ne of these, if you want similar instrument, as far as sound and playability , get something like the lc21c.

            Comments about Lanikai CK-C Concert Ukulele:

            Well I bought this thing roughly a year ago. I figured I'd spend a little extra to get a quality uke and I ended up with this. Well, it has pretty decent intonation and the tuners work pretty well. However the craftsmanship is pretty questionable. Felt as thought the uke was unfinished. The binding wasn't rounded so the edges were sharp. The first time I played it I actually had it cut into my arm while I was holding it. I mean, I really didn't feel like going through the process of returning it and all that time consuming business because I already had to deal with the shotty customer service of Bushman. Not saying Musicians Friend's customer service is any way bad, but I just wasn't in the mood for it. I just filed the edges down and went along my way. I've been pretty happy with it, but I wish I bought something with better quality like a Kala.

            from Ann Arbor, MI

            Comments about Lanikai CK-C Concert Ukulele:

            I'm new to playing the ukulele. So new, that I had no idea what the tuning of it was until i looked it up after receiving my CK-C. To make a long story short, it's absolutely gorgeous. The markings on the one I bought are drop-dead stunning. The sound quality is much like any ukulele I've heard professionals play. Easy to pick up and learn, and it's obvious that this instrument will be with me for a long time. Buy it.

            Lanikai Uke

            Comments about Lanikai CK-C Concert Ukulele:

            I bought this uke locally here in Honolulu to replace stolen Kamakas. It was what I needed to get back to playing with out taking out a bank loan. I was utterly surprised at it's tone and workmanship. Mine isn't as "Curly" as the discription notes, however, it's going on 7 yrs old and is a player of the first order. I would recommend Lanikai to anyone either advanced or just interested.

            Comments about Lanikai CK-C Concert Ukulele:

            I had a chance to play approx. 15 ukulele's before I bought my CK-C. None sounded as good at this price point and I would have to buy an instrument at 2-3 times the cost to get a better sound. Altogether, this is an outstanding ukulele!
