Overview

The Lanikai LU22CGC Concert Ukulele is one of their most popular and affordable ukes. Its sweet sound has a pedigree of choice woods and quality construction. The classic ukulele design and beautiful tonewood are improved with the attention to detail that has made Lanikai a preferred name in ukuleles.

The LU22CGC is just a bit bigger than a soprano ukulele, and smaller than a tenor. This is particularly helpful for performers with larger fingers, and the slightly larger body emits a louder and deeper tone.

The uke is solidly crafted with a mahogany wood top, back, sides and neck for well balanced tone. The rosewood bridge and fretboard add clarity to the notes, and die-cast tuners keep you in tune from song to song.

With gold hardware and a soft satin finish, the Lanikai LU22CGC ukulele will surely turn some heads. You won't believe what kind of beautiful sounds this dynamic and versatile little island is capable of.

I have been playing guitar for 25 years, and I have experience building and setting up guitars. I recently became interested in ukuleles when I grabbed a $25 one during the black Friday sale. It was enough to pique my interest, and I went back to find something a little nicer. The Mitchells and Cordobas were also $99, and looked really fancy with some nicer looking wood, abalone inlays and what nots. At this price range I didn't trust all the ornamental stuff. What impressed me about this uke is that it is simple, basic, and has sealed tuners. To support my theory, the version of this uke that has all the fancy stuff the others had, cost more than twice as much. I didn't really intend to get a concert size uke, and didn't realize I did until I got home. Hey, I know guitars not ukuleles. (I just recently learned to spell ukulele correct lol) With that said, I really like the concert size. It is much louder and fuller sounding, the longer fretboard makes it easier to fret chords, and the longer scale puts more tension on the strings, which gives it a more vibrant tone, and I think it makes it easier to strum without accidentaly digging your thumb in. This uke comes with a set of top of the line, Made In Italy, Aquila Nygut strings installed. Which is ironic, because I bought a set of the same strings with it that I was going to put on first thing. Since I had the extra set of strings I installed them on the $25 uke, and jeez, what a difference they make. So I believe much of the bright responsive tone comes from the the strings. The uke itself has a warm rich tone, and I suspect with lesser strings it may be a bit dark sounding, but with the included strings, the tone is nicely balanced. That is my one complaint is that it actually sounds a little too good. At times when plucking individual notes, the tone almost reminds me of a fine classical guitar. Makes me feel as if I should be sitting up and playing properly instead of laying in bed and fiddling around as I've been doing. In other words, it feels like less of a novelty and more like a "real" instrument. While we're on the negative side of things, the first one I recieved started to develop a buzzing A string. About the same time something started rattling around inside of the tuner. The important thing here is Guitar Center took care of me even though I lost the receipt, and the uke that I recieved in exchange actually has nicer looking wood, so I'm satisfied. The saddle on both ukes had a sharp edge left over from the mold, which tears up the bottom of the strings. I'd recommend cleaning the molding line off the top with a piece of 400 grit sand paper. Overall, I'd say it is a great instrument for the price.

I use this as my practice uke every night. The sound is pretty good, but definitely lacks range. Some similar notes you can't tell apart like my other uke, so it sounds like I'm playing the same note from time to time (which ruins the song). The third string never stays in tune....after ONE song....every time! Overall it's a decent uke, not sure if it's just a faulty uke or what, but I'd give it 3/5 right now.

Not for me

Comments about Lanikai LU22CGC Concert Ukulele:

It looks beautiful. The volume of it was too quiet for me and it didn't have the deep "Ukelele" sound to it. After playing 10 min or so my finger tips would be sore. I compared it to other identical make/model and they all were quiet in sound. So it wasn't this instrument only. I returned it for a different brand.

Comments about Lanikai LU22CGC Concert Ukulele:

I purchased this after looking at the reviews. And I thought it would be a great way to play guitar since it only has 4 strings. However, when I took it out of the box. it was TINY.

DO NOT BUY. THIS IS A SCAM.

      Comments about Lanikai LU22CGC Concert Ukulele:

      This ukulele is built with quality, it feels sturdy in my hands and it has a great tone, ive had it for 2 days and ive noticed the lower 2 strings go out of tune after playing a while, but im guessing its the strings, and there are too many windings on the tuning peg, so maybe the strings just need to settle in.

      Comments about Lanikai LU22CGC Concert Ukulele:

      Purchased as a gift for my daughter. This ukelele is well made and sounds nice.
      In a past life I was a guitar tech....certified Fender, Gibson, Martin etc and have setup many new instruments of all types. This one came out of the box as good as anything I've seen at any price. You can tell it was properly setup before the manufacturer shipped it which is something you don't normally see with many less expensive instruments.

      Comments about Lanikai LU22CGC Concert Ukulele:

      I bought this as a Christmas present for my wife who wants to learn to play. It has decent quality tuning mechanisms that seem to hold the instrument in pitch, and is an attractive piece as well. The edges of the fretboard are a bit sharp to the touch, but can be smoothed out with a fine grade sandpaper. Has a very nice round and full tone.

        I wanted to play a lighter instrument, since playing guitars had caused shoulder pain. This concert Uke plays like a dream, and has a sharp standard sound.
