    I own many vintage and sought after instruments... This is eminently road worthy. Great pick up/tuner combo. In Hawaii we would say sound is Kani, bright, present voice to instrument. Big Dollahs for a Hawaii made without pick up or Stupid Deal of the Day, best buy this year.

    I bought this for my husband. When it arrived, it had a gash in the face, in addition to finish work issues. We called and they shipped us a new one right away. Second one - no gash, but you could feel the sharp edges of each fret, the tuning heads weren't even screwed in straight. Despite all that, it still sounds really good. After a couple hours of buffing,filing, and polishing, my husband is more happy with it.
    We heard that if you can find one made in the US, the build quality is better.

      I purchased this as a gift and was not disappointed in the least. It plays nicely and sounds great. The integrated tuner was also a big hit.

      The construction and quality is well above average at this price point and the edge bindings give it an upscale look.

          Comments about Lanikai LU Series LU-21TEK Tenor Acoustic-Electric Ukulele with Fishman Kula Electronics:

          I love ukes and own several. This is a good brand name but the one I got is almost unplayable. The nut is so high that fretting anything on the first fret is a chore and you get sore fingers after a few songs (I play acoustic guitar daily and have calluses but this is harder to fret than anything else I own). By the time you get down the fretboard to the 10th fret the strings are over 3/8in off the board. There is no easy way to adjust the nut or neck that I can see so I will probably send this back instead of sending it out to get worked on for more cost.

          Comments about Lanikai LU Series LU-21TEK Tenor Acoustic-Electric Ukulele with Fishman Kula Electronics:

          I've been playing stringed instruments for nearly 50 years now and picked this up based on the use of the ukulele in some recent popular music. The instrument plays well, stays in tune well for a nylon string instrument, sounds good with and without amplification (thanks to the pickup system), and the built-in-tuner is a plus. The battery/jack approach should become the standard approach for other A-E instruments. On some of my guitars, I need to loosen strings and get my big hand in through the soundhole to get at the battery.

          Going to have to order a gig bag for it.

          On the down side, the packaging the instrument came in caused me some worry as it looked crushed on arrival from UPS. Fortunately, there was only a minor finish scuff on the lower bout that I decided to live with.

                      I wanted a ululele that stays in tune (as much as nylon strings can) and I got exactly that. I didn't expect to like the on board tuner as much as I do, but I love it.
