Overview

The Lanikai CKCGC Concert Ukulele delivers sweet sound thanks to its rare wood and quality construction. The classic uke design and woodwork is improved with attention to detail that has made Lanikai a preferred name in ukuleles.

The concert size ukulele is just a bit bigger than a soprano uke, and smaller than a tenor. This size is particularly helpful for performers with larger fingers, and the slightly larger body delivers a louder and deeper tone.

The Lanikai CKCGC ukulele's curly koa wood top, back, and sides generate well-balanced tone. Its construction is solid, and its looks are breathtaking. Used in making ukuleles for over a century, rare Hawaiian koa wood is especially prized for its distinctive curly grain.

Grown mostly on the big island of Oahu, the gorgeous red-hued wood makes Lanikai's Curly Koa Series ukuleles look as beautiful as they sound. The rosewood bridge and fretboard add clarity to the notes, and the die-cast tuners keep you in tune from song to song. With gold hardware and a soft satin finish, the Lanikai CKCGC Concert Ukulele will surely turn some heads. You won't believe what kind of beautiful sounds this dynamic and versatile little island instrument is capable of singing.

      Comments about Lanikai CKCGC Concert Ukulele:

      I really really wanted a ukulele for the longest time. I already knew how to play, but I never had one of my own. I went to a store around 2 days ago and it was the best ukulele I could pick. It was sweet-sounding, the wood finish was superb, and it was just pure fun to play it. The only downside I can think of is that it doesn't come with a case, but we could buy it separately. It's great for its cost and just an amazing instrument overall. If you want a uke, and can afford this one, buy it. You won't regret it.

        Comments about Lanikai CKCGC Concert Ukulele:

        I've been searching for a concert ukulele for awhile after having played a baritone and tenor ukulele. I came across the Lanikai at the store and feel in love with it right away. The tone, the ease of strumming and picking just seemed to pop from the Lanikai. The weight and feel of the concert in my arms and hand felt like it was an extension of me.
        When I came across a used concert Lanikai I purchased it right away. At first, I was a little concerned about the "used" label. But Guitar Center has a great return policy and after getting prompt answers to my questions about the uke from the store it was located at I felt confident in my purchase ,and I made a nice savings.
        Overrall, the store gives great support, the uke is awesome and makes me smile, and the packaging made me confident that they took the time to make sure my purchase arrived safely.
        I've wanted Koa for awhile, the sound from it is fantastic.

            Comments about Lanikai CKCGC Concert Ukulele:

            I bought the CKCGC Concert Ukulele as a gift for one of my friends that had been expressing an interest in learning to play the Uke a few weeks ago. She was obviously a beginner when it comes to Ukes, but is fairly knowledgeable about guitars and such. She was thrilled with this instrument. Not only is it a beautiful instrument, but it has a great sound as well.

            Great sound

            By John Q

            from Verona, NJ

            Comments about Lanikai CKCGC Concert Ukulele:

            Playing guitar for 20 years, as an amateur. Hurt my arm so temporarily can't move well - so a uke! It's a shorter size and I can play.

            The wood is a great look, inlays are terrific, neck and frets play nicely. Binding is very nice looking but had a number of rough spots somehow. A little light sanding with wife's emory board solved that. Finish is otherwise very nice.

            Plays great. Strings are great, but be mindful they need time to stretch. Took my E string about 2 days of playing before it stayed in tune (others were good from the go). Tuners are good quality.

            Four stars only because a 2 minute sanding from the factory would have corrected the little roughness in the binding.

            Best uke for the money, IMHO

            By Paul Montgomery

            from Concord, CA

            Comments about Lanikai CKCGC Concert Ukulele:

            I don't think you can find a better uke in this price range. It sounds great and feels nice in your hands. It's got a solid koa top, "Schaller-like" sealed tuners, Aquila strings and tasty decorative appointments. The notes really pop off of that thing, strong and bright. I've been playing mine pretty-much non-stop for several days now. My face hurts from smiling so much! Bring an extra $10 and get a Snark tuner for it. It takes a little while for the strings to settle-in. On mine, the intonation is just a tiny bit flat up above the 7th fret or so, but it's not too bad. For the price, really - it's such a bargain I hate to even mention it.

            Fantastic

            By Sam

            from NY

            Comments about Lanikai CKCGC Concert Ukulele:

            I started playing ukulele about 4 months ago on a cheap little soprano Kohala. I got really into it so I wanted to invest in a good one being that I play every chance I get. After doing a lot of research I initially purchased the Cordoba 20CM after trying it in the store. After waiting a month of it being on backorder I went into my local Guitar Center to find out what the deal was. I was about to take the display Cordoba but then I laid eyes on the Lanikai CKCGC and was immediately interested. After playing both one after the other I fell in love with the Lanikai. Not only is it a beautiful instrument, but it sounds better than I could have ever asked for. Especially for such a reasonable price. And the thing holds a tune like a champ. I totally recommend this instrument for people who want to take a step up from their first uke to the next level.

            Amazing

            By Higgins

            from Greensboro, NC

            Comments about Lanikai CKCGC Concert Ukulele:

            I have been playing guitar for about 5 years now and wanted a bit of a change. I had been thinking about a ukulele for a few months but having never played one, kept deciding against getting one. When I got the latest GC flyer in the mail, I saw a coupon for new ukuleles (Seriously, how often do you see a coupon for a uke?) So I took it as a sign and went to my local GC and got one. Pros: Stays in tune beautifully. I was expecting to have to retune about every five minutes or so, but that's not the case. I can play for an hour or so and only become slightly flat. exceeds my expectation for a nylon stringed instrument. Well made of beautiful wood and has amazing sound AND projection. I was able to jam with my buddy who was playing a steel string Ibanez acoustic guitar and had no problem with volume. Very easy transition from guitar.....chord wise. Have not delved into scales yet. One step at a time. Not overly expensive. Cons: Made in Indonesia. I just would like to see more American made instruments. Seems like everything is made overseas now-a-days. As I said before, I'm very happy with this purchase and I foresee myself playing a lot more. If it gets lost, stolen, broken, whatever, I will definitely be getting a replacement. Might even spend a bit more and get an acoustic/electric. I would highly recommend to anyone interested in a good entry level ukulele
