Overview

Pineapple-shaped body delivers rich, fruity tone. Top, back, and sides are of nato wood construction with a smooth rosewood fingerboard and bridge. Geared tuners for precise tuning. Binding adds the finishing touch to the top. The distinctive pineapple 14" scale length is in-between soprano (13") and concert (15").

Lanikai ukuleles have great playability, sound, and aesthetics at a price that will surprise you. The top, back, and sides are nato wood, which is very similar to mahogany. Binding on the top. The bridge and fingerboard are of rosewood.

This ukulele is strung with Aquila Nylgut Strings and includes a Lanikai Learn to Play instruction booklet.

Excelent Ukelele

By david guzman

from San Diego, CA

Comments about Lanikai LU-21P Pineapple Ukulele:

This is the first Ukelele i've owned. It has great sound, although it is a little ackward to hold due to the shape. The strings are new so I cant really talk about the tuning. Right know it last about couple hours. However I just got it two days ago, so that explains it. The paintjob is quite amaizing, it makes it look like it is worth quite more. I would totally reccomend it!! Great UKE!!!

Poor Build Quality and Tone

By CT

from Plano, TX

Comments about Lanikai LU-21P Pineapple Ukulele:

Guitar, bass, ukulele, djembe player. I already own a Lanikai LU-11 Soprano uke which sounds great and has a great build quality. I thought I'd try try out the pineapple as well. Big disappointment. Didn't carry at the local store so had to site-to-store it, calling and talking to them gave me a great deal, but when it arrived I was immediately struck by the very poor fretwork, off-kilter in every way. I have played on it for a few days now, recorded it in comparison to my LU-11, and the lower-priced soprano beats it every time. The tone of this uke is just this side of muddy, it just sounds "off" in every way. I think there is a reason why guitar-shaped instruments are guitar-shaped, it's not an accident, it creates the best tone, and the pineapple shape, in this Lanikai, is greatly lacking in tone. So, the LU-11 soprano is a much better buy in tone, build quality, and overall satisfaction. I will also say that any economy uke is going to require set-up to lower the action, they are all ridiculously high. I did it myself in 20 minutes after viewing setup vids on youtube, but it does require files and sandpaper and such. Basic chords might be possible without lowering action but not more complex barre forms at first fret.

Pine me once, shame on me. Pine me twice shame on you.

Comments about Lanikai LU-21P Pineapple Ukulele:

I love my Pineapple uke. Wish I would have bought it sooner, too much fun to play, can't put it down. The tuner that they sell is great too, a good buy for fifteen bucks. Super stoked, you will be to. Peace and chicken grease, Baracus

PERFECT for starters

By Cole

from Aurora, CO

Comments about Lanikai LU-21P Pineapple Ukulele:

I've had this uke for about a year now. No strings have broken and everything is in good shape. Works good, sounds great, stays in tune and is easy to learn on. It's not the nicest or most stylish, but for the price, its great. AWESOME for beginners because if you don't like it, you didn't spend a fortune. Bought this with birthday money. I like the unique shape, but its hard to find a case for the shape, I've just been using the uke shaped box it came in.

Money Well Spent!

By Sandra

from New York, NY

Comments about Lanikai LU-21P Pineapple Ukulele:

This uke has a very nice sound to it and I love playing it. I love that it's so unique-looking, too. When I first got it, the strings would get out of tune really fast. Then a few days later, the A and G strings would stay in tune while the C and E strings would need to be adjusted a lot. Then it was just the C string, and it hardly went out. But now, the strings all stay in tune really well So it seems that the strings just need a settling-in period of about a week of playing, and then they're good to go! It's a nice, high-quality uke, and a great price. Awesome purchase. I think I'll buy one for my sister as a surprise for her birthday! It brings so much joy! Houseguests come over and like messing around with it. And I don't freak out because it cost so little!

Nice uke!

By 1derwoman

from Pittsburg, CA

Comments about Lanikai LU-21P Pineapple Ukulele:

I have been having so much fun with this ukelele! It looks and sounds great, and is very easy to play. The only drawback is that it doesn't stay in tune very long. Not sure how to fix this, but for the value, unique style, and ease, this one is great!

Pineapple Uke

By Brendt

from Reno, NV

Comments about Lanikai LU-21P Pineapple Ukulele:

The Lanikai Uke, despite being delayed by several snow storms, was promptly delivered to me within a week. It arrived in excellent condition, and sounded amazing right out of the box (after its virgin tuning, of course). Once broken in, it requires little tuning maintenance and can be incredibly addicting to play. After my brother fiddled with it, he decided to buy his own: its sister, concert version. We couldn't be happier with our purchases, as it is a very rewarding hobby.

Awesome

By Michael Wayne

from pleasant grove alabama

Comments about Lanikai LU-21P Pineapple Ukulele:

This was my first Uke, so it may not be of much help. I ordered it and almost payed for 3 day shipping, but I didn't and lo and behold on the third day it was at my house. I learned all the chords in an hour and I love it. I just wish there was a case for it. It's an odd shape so i don't know who'd make one. Great Uke for the money. Stays in tune, Awesome
