Lanikai now offers the SM-CEK Spalted Mango Concert Ukulele with a Fishman Kula Preamp. This acoustic-electric ukulele is constructed from gorgeous woods with exotic figuring and highly contrasting tones due to special construction techniques and a meticulous process used for selection.
The SM (Spalted Mango) ukuleles illustrate Lanikai's spirit of experimentation by bringing exciting, new developments to the ukulele world. The SM-CE uke offers exquisite beauty and a very mellow tone, thanks to the solid spalted mango construction. Spalted mango has a unique tonal characteristic that has the midrange of mahogany but the roundness of spruce. The difficulties in crafting an instrument with spalted mango are greatly outweighed by the resulting tone and striking appearance.

With a three band EQ, you’ll be prepared to please any crowd by adjusting the low, mid, and high range to your liking. Never search for your clip-on tuner again.

I couldn't be more please with my Lanikai Spalted Mango Acoustic/Electric Concert Ukulele. For starters this Ukulele is freaking GORGEOUS. The spalted mango wood has a randomly bold and beautiful black grain on a blonde background that is borderline sexy. The black edges really make the mother of pearl inlay POP! The gloss finish only make it more stunning. The sound is surprisingly full and bright, having that classic cheery Hawaiian ukulele sound, which I love. The electric pickup is sweet, the 3 band equalizer only accentuates that awesome tone coming from this ukulele and stock aquilla strings. Lanikai, you've made an Awesome Ukulele!
