A full-sounding instrument with beautiful tonewoods and a cutaway.
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. This Lanikai Curly Koa Series CK-6EK 6-String Tenor Ukulele with Fishman Kula Electronics has the standard G, C, E, A tuning, with two additional strings that are paired with the C and A strings. The additional "C" string is either tuned an octave up or down. The additional “A” string is tuned to the same octave as the other "A" string.

Comments about Lanikai Curly Koa Series CK-6EK 6-String Tenor Ukulele with Fishman Kula Electronics:
I am a veteran musician of 22 years, but have been a uke player for a relatively short time (about 5 months) yet the ukulele was very easy to learn, so I wanted more of a challenge. The 6-sting ukulele gave me that challenge. The 6-string still uses the same tuning and finger placement as a traditional soprano uke, yet with 2 added strings on the C and A (both in octaves) so the sound is far warmer and full than a standard uke. This model in particular sounds, plays and looks fantastic. The electronics are top notch as well, the Fishman preamp works great and has a useful built in tuner (for when you forget yours at home). All in all this is a fantastic buy which I recommend for veteran musicians and advanced uke players!
