OVERVIEW

Exotic woods and Grover tuners provide a performance-driven concert ukulele.

With its solid monkey pod body, the Lanikai SMP-C concert ukulele has incredible projection with an exotic and an enviable appearance. Gold-plated Grover tuning machines ensure long hours of stress-free playing.

The concert ukulele body produces the clear uke tone, with a bit more projection than the standard soprano body. It's ideal for on-stage performance—whether rhythmic strumming, or working out some inspired melodies, the projection and clarity of this Lanikai concert uke is significant.

Unadorned by synthetic enhancements, this series captures the pure essence and beauty of the natural world. The Lanikai Exotic series ukes feature a solid top back and sides, slotted headstock, rosewood fingerboard and bridge, maple and rosewood skunk stripe and an ovangkol neck. A custom wide bone nut was used to increase the string spacing, making these concert ukuleles more comfortable for guitarists who are expanding their sonic palette with the ukulele.

With its easy playability, and the included instruction booklet written by renowned ukulele instructor Mary Lou Dempler, you will be playing the Lanikai SMP-C ukulele in a matter of minutes. If you have never played ukulele before get ready for a world of fun. The ukulele is an addicting instrument that can and should be taken everywhere. If you can play one ukulele you can play them all.

The SMP-C concert uke is strung with Aquila Nylgut strings.

      Comments about Lanikai SMP-C Solid Monkey Pod Concert Ukulele:

      I am a novice at the Ukulele, but not a novice to music at all - just decided to pick up something that is easier to transport when traveling [a piano isn't terribly portable]. I'm learning it as quickly as my fingers all [no callouses are built up yet]. I sounds great when my friend who actually knows how to play a Uke takes a turn on it!

        Comments about Lanikai SMP-C Solid Monkey Pod Concert Ukulele:

        New to the uke and bought this one because I wanted a solid wood and didn't want to break the bank.It was one sale for a very good price I did change the strings because I'm not a fan of nylagut strings, but that's just what I prefer.

            Comments about Lanikai SMP-C Solid Monkey Pod Concert Ukulele:

            I'm a guitar and bass player who wanted a decent uke to learn on. This instrument looks great and sounds great. Only problem I had was that when the uke arrived it didn't have the instruction book with it as described. When we called Musicians Friend they said that we would have to return the instrument to get the book. That's not how you should treat a friend! Disappointing!

            Really nice

            Comments about Lanikai SMP-C Solid Monkey Pod Concert Ukulele:

            This uke is lovely. I have wanted a solid wood uke since my first one in Hawaii 60 years ago. This monkey pod one is just the thing, altho the first one was koa wood. Wish I still had it. This being a concert style means I can play the octives. The finger board is very comfortable and the strings are terrific. Something about being nylon but sounding like gut... anyway, they do sound good. I am a little scared to have paid a lot for this, but it is awfully nice.
