Mellow tone in a striking spalted mango frame makes this ukulele a uku-looker.
Lanikai offers the SM-CE Spalted Mango Concert Ukulele as a striking edition to the Lanikai Custom series. This acoustic-electric ukulele is constructed from gorgeous woods with exotic figuring and highly contrasting tones due to special construction techniques and a meticulous process used for selection.
The SM (Spalted Mango) ukuleles illustrate Lanikai's spirit of experimentation by bringing exciting, new developments to the ukulele world. The SM-CE uke offers exquisite beauty and a very mellow tone, thanks to the solid spalted mango construction. Spalted mango has a unique tonal characteristic that has the midrange of mahogany but the roundness of spruce. The difficulties in crafting an instrument with spalted mango are greatly outweighed by the resulting tone and striking appearance.
This concert ukulele also features an undersaddle pickup (passive) that will enable you to plug in and turn it up in a pinch.
This ukulele is strung with Aquila Nylgut Strings.
