With its solid monkey pod body, the Lanikai SMP-TCA cutaway tenor ukulele has incredible projection and exotic appeal. Its gold-plated Grover tuning machines ensure long hours of stress-free strumming.

The tenor ukulele body produces the clear ukulele tone, with a bit more projection than the standard soprano body. It's ideal for on-stage performance”whether rhythmic strumming, or working out some inspired melodies, the projection and clarity of this Lanikai uke is significant.

Unadorned by synthetic enhancements, the SMP-TCA Lanikai tenor ukulele captures the pure essence and beauty of the natural world. Lanikai's Exotic series features a solid top, back, and sides, slotted headstock, rosewood fingerboard and bridge, maple and rosewood skunk stripe and an ovangkol neck. A custom wide bone nut was used to increase the string spacing, making the Lanikai SMP-TCA tenor ukulele more comfortable for guitarists who are expanding their sonic palette with the ukulele. And thanks to the cutaway design, you have comfortable access to the acoustic-electric uke's entire fretboard.

The acoustic-electric ukulele comes equipped with a Fishman Sonitone undersaddle pickup, and a Fishman Sonicore preamp.

With the easy playability, and included instruction booklet written by renowned ukulele instructor Mary Lou Dempler, you will be playing in a matter of minutes. If you have never played ukulele before, get ready for a world of fun. The ukulele is an addicting instrument that can and will be taken everywhere. If you can play one ukulele you can play them all.

The Lanikai SMP-TCA tenor ukulele is strung with Aquila Nylgut strings and includes a Lanikai Learn to Play instruction booklet.

Better than I expected

Comments about Lanikai SMP-TCA Solid Monkey Pod Tenor Cutaway Ukulele:

Purchased this without trying it first. I was not disappointed when I received it. First it is a beautiful looking instrument. Second, the slotted headstock and the cutaway body make it easy to use and hold. It is light but feels good. The pick up system is one of the best and speaks for itself. I ordered their design hard case and was also pleased with it. As for the sound, the ukulele is just starting to open up and it has a pretty good sustain. The natural Monkey Pod wood is a very hard wood which could dampen the volume but the loudness seems to be adequate for playing unplugged. If I need more volume the I merely plug in to my Amp and I'm Good but I have not seen any problems with its normal volume. The Aquila strings are a natural for this uke.
