Lanikai Solid Zebrawood (Concert Acoustic/Electric)
You’re obviously looking at an acoustic/electric version of a ukulele because you have either of two things in mind: concert or jamming sessions. So you’re either already a performing artiste, or you’re practicing to be one, and you just need a ukulele that you can hook-up to an amp for ultra-loud playing.
Lucky you! You picked the right Lanikai that has the two right words for you in one line: concert and electric. The top, back and sides of this model are crafted from solid zebrawood, while the fret board and bridge are from rosewood. There is a maple and rosewood skunk stripe along the back. The neck is made from ovangkol, while the tuning mechanism is gold plated. What you’re looking at is a piece of art with a textured grainy feel on its natural finished surface.
This 4 string concert Lanikai has a 15” scale and is strung with Aquila Nylgut strings, premium Nylon Catgut strings from Italy. It comes with a gold plated Grover tuning machine, and with the tagline of ‘World’s Finest Machine Heads’, you know you’ve got one of the best.
Playing this Lanikai is a breeze, for beginners and for professionals due to a few choice elements on this ukulele. Firstly, the width at bone nut is a customized distance wider than normal making the strings further apart, turning your plucked notes into something that doesn’t require you to look closely anymore. Also, the cutaway in this model will give you easy access to the strings on the higher frets.
For your concert or jamming needs, this zebrawood concert ukulele comes with a Fishman Sonitone Pickup and Fishman Sonicore Controls. The volume and tone controls for this performance driven instrument are mounted into the sound hole for easy access.
The Lanikai Solid Zebrawood Concert Acoustic / Electric is priced at $499.00.
