Watch as Rock Clouser from Lanikai Ukuleles walks us through the completely re-imagined uke lines.
Lanikai ejected all of its prior lines and debuted 48 (!!!) new ukuleles. Gone are the complicated adjustable bridge saddles of the TunaUkes and the USB-compatible preamp of the UkeSB line. Now, each Lanikai comes with upgraded woods, a NuBone synthetic nut and saddle, strap buttons, and open-back tuners. Within the company’s line are several affordable solid-and laminated-wood bodied ukuleles, featuring families built around wood and trim themes, from basic to pretty flashy.
The 2017 models feature a diverse wood selection and include laminated- and solid-wood bodies from mahogany, acacia, bubinga, figured bocote, zirocote, solid spruce, and more. The laminated ukes comes with a gig bag and the solid wood ukes come with a foam-padded case.
