I love the 14" scale of this ukulele which places it in between my soprano and tenor ukuleles. It is shipped with high quality Aquila strings. I have only been playing ukulele for a little over a year and as a beginner found this an excellent instrument. It has a beautiful warm tone and the intonation is beautiful. Gear tuners a good quality and after initial tuning/stretching of strings it holds tune great. I would highly recommend this ukulele to any beginner or intermediate level ukulele players.

Like most things I buy through Musician's Friend, I purchased the Lanikai LU-21P during a Stupid Deal event. For the "stupid" price, I think this soprano model makes a fine introduction into the world of ukuleles. I've owned this uke for a couple weeks so far and find myself playing it daily. I'm primarily a bass player, so I'm used to long spaces between frets, and the scale on a soprano uke is quite small, but my smallish fingers have no problems with the cramped spacing. For those musicians who have hands that would please the NBA, a larger scaled ukulele should be considered. The strings are still stretching after 2 weeks of playing. I'm constantly making fine tuning adjustments, even between songs, and I don't consider myself a forceful player. The intonation is a little off, but is still playable, in my opinion. Those cursed with perfect pitch may disagree. Overall, I'm pleased about getting the Lanikai LU-21P as my first uke, but honestly, I would have been a little disappointed had I bought it at full price. Perhaps one day, I'll get to compare this ukulele to one that sells for 3 times the price. It would be interesting to find out what kind of tone and how much volume one can get out of the tiny body of the more expensive offerings. But until then, the LU-21P will do just fine.

    Comments about Lanikai LU-21P Pineapple Ukulele:

    I bought this in good used condition. There are no cosmetic blemishes, and would have believed it was new if not for the fact that it came in a plain brown box.

    I'm not a musician, more just a music enthusiast, but the instrument sounds good to me and has been fun to play around with. My niece also seemed to like it, although she commented right away that it had plastic (Nylgut) strings (her music teacher has a concert level one). But for what it is, an entry level Ukulele, it seems very good. It's very light so you won't get tired holding it, but feels solid.

    Sturdy construction, nice tone, fun, cute design.

        This is my first stringed instrument and I read a million reviews on a ton of different instruments before making a decision to buy. I don't regret this purchase at all. Even my instructor likes to play it and he has commented that the quality of this little uke is better than ukes 4-5 times its cost. For the low price (scored it on sale), it's worth every penny. Don't snooze on this little pineapple.

          Comments about Lanikai LU-21P Pineapple Ukulele:

          Now, I'm no expert on strings, but I do play for fun and I do love the ukulele. First uke was a Rogue, which has a surprisingly nice sound, and then I purchased this one on a whim (this is a problem of mine...). The shape and somewhat-shallow body makes the sound just different enough that it sounds great but distinguishable - Sweeter sounding I guess, a bit timid, but a GREAT compliment. I love my little collection!

                Bought this on sale. Amazing price. Took about a week for the strings to stretch and stay in tune. Give it time. Sounds nice, easy to strum. Nice little Ukelele for the money. Love it so far.

                I bought two of them and they were decent sounding and were consistent in quality. I prefer the Koa look but the mahagony was ok. I got them on sale but would not pay the full price for them. They're not that much better quality of some that are half as much.

                  If you're not sure whether the ukulele is for you or not, this is an acceptable launchpoint. At this price point, you won't get perfection, but you will get a solid little instrument. Mine convinced me to step up and acquire 2 additional instruments in concert and tenor sizes.

                      This is my first ukulele and I am having an absolute blast playing it. I was suprised that the sound was as good as it is. Lot of quality considering the price.

                            Smaller than I thought it would be, but quality craftsmanship. Very fun instrument and easy to learn songs. Fingering much easier than with a guitar.
