Experience the island sound, wrapped in luscious koa wood.
The CK-B baritone ukulele uses Hawaiian koa that is especially prized for its curly grain. Lanikai makes use of this exquisite wood by handcrafting all CK series uke's to exacting specifications. Grown mostly on the island of Oahu, the gorgeous red-hued wood used for the curly koa series make these Lanikai ukuleles look as beautiful as they sound.
In its most traditional form the CK-B is a baritone ukulele that owes its existence to Portuguese immigrants bringing their craft of music instrument building to Hawaii in the 1870s. The baritone ukulele body offers deep, loud tone with full, balanced projection in a large ukulele body. Ready for the stage, the thick, loud sound is ideal for rhythmic strumming, and its size lets you take it wherever you feel inspired to play.
The curly koa body on this Lanikai baritone uke offers tremendous beauty and a soft, but pronounced tone that sounds big and bold. The 20-3/8" scale provides smooth, comfortable access all along the instrument's 19 frets. The rugged mahogany neck adds strength to the instrument's construction, while the rosewood bridge and fingerboard complement each note's sustain and decay. The Lanikai CK series comes with die-cast tuning machines geared 14:1 for those players who demand greater control over their tuning.
Dressed with a natural finish and featuring chrome die-cast tuners and chrome hardware, this Lanikai baritone uke is a model of easy playability. If you've never played ukulele before, get ready for a world of fun. The ukulele is an addicting instrument that can and should be taken everywhere.
