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.

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

      I have played ukulele since I was a kid. I own other ukuleles, and have played a Lanakai electric Concert for several years with most excellent success. This new Tenor has Fishman electronics like my Martin 6-string; 3 band EQ and tuner. It stays in tune, and sounds great amplified! The larger neck makes it easy for a guitarist to transition. Oh, yeah.....it's a hoot to play at a gig when things start to get boring!

            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.

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

            I play guitar, so the Uke gives me something new to do. I have a soprano, but this tenor feels a little better in my hands. Chord changes are logical! Easy to solo. Strums feel more exotic. Cradle the base of the Lanikai in the crook of your arm and let your hand strum across it where the neck meets the body for great tone. You'll be the life of the party!

                      The instrument is outstanding. I am a guitar player. My sister wants a tenor ukelele for christmas so my father ordered this one from here. When it came I just had to mess with it, and since I play classical guitar and use nylon strings and finger pick, it turns out, I'm not all that bad at playing this uke. But its not mine, its for my sis.... so we just went ahead and got another one... same one.... its that good. I also want to note that when we called for some assistance in ordering the young lady who attended to us was absolutely amazingly helpful, very polite and got stuff done quickly. Thanks musiciansfriend for having great customer service as well as good products at good prices. This ukelele probably isnt what the pros play on stage, but I wouldn't call this just a "starter" instrument or a novice instrument. Its very good... now we have two.

                      A basic instrument without the flash of most ukes used to perform in concerts. The strings are well placed in separation to fit larger hands. Great quality controls and strings come with the uke.

                          I'm just starting out....my dad played a lot. Says the tone is very nice. Could use some nicer strings but to start out, probably ok.

                          Easy to tune with the built in tuner. Holds tuning pretty well..roughly every few days of playing I re-tune.

                          Practice practice practice.....
