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 an 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.
