The LUCKTS Tenor Ukulele Shop

The top ukulele shop superstars all seem to have an inclination towards playing tenor ukes, with the likes of James Hill, Jake Shimabukuro and Israel Kamakawiwo’ole. Here’s one tenor ukulele shop you should not overlook, the LUCKTS Tenor from Lanikai. Though the more experienced players are the ones that tend to gravitate towards a tenor uke, there is no hard and fast rule about beginners not being able to pick one up.
Tenor ukulele shop can come with 4, 6 or 8 strings, but the LUCKTS comes with 4 strings. This tenor sized instrument produces deeper, richer and louder sounds and tones as compared to its soprano counterparts due to its size difference, and construction.
The scale length of the LUCKTS is 17.25”, the width at nut is 1.3125” and consists of 19 frets. The fret board is crafted from rosewood, which makes a world of difference when it comes to sturdiness and durability as compared to plastic. The top is bound by maple, and the top, back and sides are handcrafted from curly koa. If you’re not a seasoned ukulele enthusiast just yet, you may not know the curly koa, so in summary it is the Acacia Koa, a rare tree found in Hawaii that has been touted for its curly grain red-toned hues and sought after for making stringed instruments such as the ukulele and guitar.
