A beautiful curly koa island 4-string.
The Lanikai CK-S soprano ukulele uses Hawaiian koa that is especially prized for its curly grain. Lanikai makes use of this exquisite wood by handcrafting CK series ukes to exacting specifications. Grown mostly on the island of Oahu, the gorgeous red-hued wood used for the Curly Koa series make these ukuleles look as beautiful as they sound.
In its most traditional form the Lanikai CK-S is a soprano ukulele that owes its existence to Portuguese immigrants bringing their craft of instrument-building to Hawaii in the 1870s. The soprano ukulele body offers bright tone, with a surprising amount of projection for such a small-bodied instrument. The sound of the soprano ukulele is ideal for melodic finger movements, and the size lets you take it wherever you feel inspired to play.
The curly koa body offers tremendous beauty and a soft, but pronounced tone. The 13-1/2" scale provides smooth, comfortable access all along the instrument's 12 frets. The Lanikai soprano ukulele's rugged mahogany neck adds strength to the instrument's construction, while the rosewood bridge and fingerboard complement each note's sustain and decay. Lanikai CK ukes come 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 soprano ukulele is a model of easy playability. An included instruction booklet written by renowned instructor Mary Lou Dempler will get you playing in a matter of minutes. If you've never played ukulele before, get ready for a world of fun. The ukulele is an addicting instrument that can and will be taken everywhere.
The Lanikai CK-S soprano ukulele is strung with Aquila Nylgut Strings and includes a Lanikai Learn to Play Instruction Booklet.
