This uke is easy to play, looks pretty sexy (I like the dark wood colour), and is a overall great uke for the money. Would definitely recommend. And all ukuleles everywhere are known for going out of tune quickly, just give it a couple of days of playing and tuning, the strings will eventually set. This particular uke set pretty quickly for me, around 4 days I believe.

I was given this as a gift about 10 days ago. I read the reviews and thought this would be the perfect uke to start out with since the reviews were pretty good. Being a guitar player I understand how strings need time to relax and most instruments need a little tweaking or setup to perform at optimum playability but this little uke is terrible at staying in tune. I can't play one song before it's out of wack and this is after stretching the strings and playing for about an hour a day. This may be a fun little toy for kids but if you are serious about learning some uke tunes, stay away from this one. The build seems ok and everything else is nice but if you cant play it, its useless.

Lanikai LU-11

By Ken

from Glen Cove, New York

Comments about Lanikai LU-11 Standard Ukulele:

For a beginner its a good instrument to pick up on and start goofing around on. Its easy to learn and fun to play and it got me more into music. The only thing is I need to tune it after using it for an hour or so.

first uke

By adam

from elk river mn

Comments about Lanikai LU-11 Standard Ukulele:

this is my first uke and so far i love it. if you play alot the strings will set and its perfectly normal for it to be out of tune. too bad the rating only goes up to 5 because this deserves a 10

Good Uke

By Gregg

from Long Beach, CA

Comments about Lanikai LU-11 Standard Ukulele:

I've had this uke for years now and it's a great starter uke, especially for the price. The only things I don't like is that soprano/standard is just so tiny. That isn't a problem with the instrument though. The only other dislike I have is that the frets wear so easily. I have had it for a long time though. I would recommend this to someone with tiny hands or a beginner.

Won't stay tuned

By j

from Torrance, CA

Comments about Lanikai LU-11 Standard Ukulele:

Every day this ukulele needs to be retuned. I can't figure out if it is the strings or something in the build of the uke.

FIRST UKE!

By Jake Mathews

from Richmond, Texas

Comments about Lanikai LU-11 Standard Ukulele:

Although this was the first ukulele I ever purchased, I could not be more in love with it! it is extremely comfortable to use, lightweight and durable, and the strings that come with it are Aquila, which was a bonus for me. After about a week or two the strings start to set and are much more in tune so you don't have to tune it every 15 minutes or so like I did the first day. Great job Lanikai, you never fail to come through with quality luthiery and great price!

Amazing!

By CMT

from Salt Lake City, Utah

Comments about Lanikai LU-11 Standard Ukulele:

I bought this uke only a week ago and I already love it! The strings started staying in tune after not even 24 hours! I was tempted to but the lu 21 because of the rosewood but I am glad i went this way! I am a guitar player and picked this up as a starter uke and it holds up great, especially when i incorporate slapping into the songs as it gives such a mellow sound!

Solid Uke for the price

By John Walters

from Cooper City, Fl.

Comments about Lanikai LU-11 Standard Ukulele:

Bought this uke for my daughter. Have built several instruments, (dulcimer, guitar, violin), was a little surprized to see it made from ply, (the body, the neck is solid)but is good quality ply with beautiful veneer! Has machines, not just pegs. Is an instrument, not a toy. Very good instrument for the price. I took the advice of another reviewer to purchase strings, and am glad I did. Better quality, stay in tune better after being stretched in a while
