Exotic monkey pod body and Fishman technology provide a performance-driven concert ukulele.

With its solid monkey pod body, Lanikai's SMP-CCA concert ukulele has incredible projection with an exotic and enviable appearance. Gold-plated Grover tuning machines ensure long hours of stress-free strumming.

The acoustic-electric concert uke produces clear ukulele tone, with more projection than the standard soprano body. It's ideal for on-stage performance—whether rhythmic strumming, or working out some inspired melodies, the projection and clarity of this Lanikai ukulele is significant.

Unadorned by synthetic enhancements, this series captures the pure essence and beauty of the natural world. The Lanikai Exotic Series features a solid top, back, and sides, slotted headstock, rosewood fingerboard and bridge, maple and rosewood skunk stripe and an ovangkol neck. A custom wide bone nut was used to increase the string spacing, making this acoustic-electric ukulele more comfortable for guitarists who are expanding their sonic palette with a Lanikai uke. And thanks to the cutaway design, you have comfortable access to the instrument's entire fretboard at your fingertips.

This acoustic-electric ukulele comes equipped with a Fishman Sonitone undersaddle pickup, and a Sonicore preamp. The amplification is clear and powerful, with slider controls for treble, bass, and volume. Battery replacement is quick and effortless with the easily accessible compartment.

With the easy playability, and included instruction booklet written by renowned ukulele instructor Mary Lou Dempler, you will be playing in a matter of minutes. If you have never played ukulele before, get ready for a world of fun. The ukulele is an addicting instrument that can, and will be, taken everywhere. If you can play one ukulele you can play them all.

This Lanikai SMP-CCA concert ukulele is strung with Aquila Nylgut strings.

  • A simply splendid ukulele!

    As reviewed by James on 11/4/2014

    Where to begin? After having this beautiful instrument for over a year now, I have little to no complaint with it. If you have the cash to spend, I would recommend this beauty in a heartbeat. The Monkeypod wood seemed like a little bit of a gamble at first, but I am very happy with it after all. It provides a cheaper alternative to Koa wood while still looking wonderful. In certain lighting it shines with a gold sheen and looks like a thousand dollars. I have little complaint with the sound. It is both full and a little on the soft side as well. The only problem I have with the sound is that the notes tend to lose their tone and tune after about the 12th fret, so if you are planning on playing higher than that on a regular basis, this should disqualify this ukulele. Otherwise, everything below the 12th fret is fine. This uke is great for both careful classical pieces and for faster strumming situations, there is no buzzing whatsoever. The strings included have held up very well and sound great even after several months of playing nearly every day. The Grover tuners look great and never fail to do their job well. The construction is not perfection, as small blemishes present themselves upon closer inspection, but it is certainly good enough to show around to friends and to play on stage. The fretboard looks and feels great, and the neck is smooth enough to glide around the board without much friction. The pickup is not top notch quality, although I would have no reservations playing on stage. Although I would ALWAYS, without exception, suggest that you go to a local store and consider instruments that you can pick up and experience before paying for, I would still recommend this ukulele to anyone who fancies online shopping, or are not able to find a local store.
