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.

    Comments about Lanikai LU22CGC Concert Ukulele:

    I got this ukulele a year ago and being the clumsy self I am, I often hit it against stuff and there is no chips or scratches anywhere. This ukulele has amazing tone quality and is by far one of my favorites. The pegs are easy to tune and the sound quality surprised me when I first got it. It's very affordable and absolutely worth the price. I recommend getting this instead if you're looking for a cheap ukulele with a good tone quality.

                    What a great little uke! Good price, fantastic tone, comes pre-strung with concert quality strings. Would definitely recommend. Stays in tune very well - heck, it was almost in tune when I received it. You can tell they take care in making these.
