Comments about Lanikai Solid Spruce Top Tenor Ukulele with USB:

The LKS-TEU ukulele from Lanikai - is an enjoyable little instrument.

The finish on the one I received was perfect. No blemishes, dings or light scratches of any kind were found. The neck was straight and the string action was acceptable. I like the action as low as possible without any fret buzz so I will let the local guitar tech have a go at sanding the saddle a tiny bit. I'll get it set to my liking for a low G tuning then I'll be good either way.

The ukulele comes with Aquila Nlygut strings from the factory. These strings sound nice and full on this tenor sized uke. Not too bright on the high end or wimpy either in the lower range.
It took a day or so for the strings to set in. The grover tuners are nice and firm so I think they will do a great job holding the instrument in tune for many years to come. Using a snark clip on tuner I checked the intonation up through the 12th fret. All is great in this regard. The onboard tuner is quite capable as well, but it takes it a second to respond to a note where the snark tuner is almost instant.

The neck and fretboard are quite remarkable on this one. Makes it one easy to play instrument.

The Fishman Kula electronics work as they should. Nothing to really comment on there. It produces a nice full range sound with all settings on flat. The knobs for volume, treble, mids and bass are just the right firmness when rotating. Gives it a well-made feel. Little adjustments go a long way on this one so I'm sure one could dial in any tone they needed with ease. I have not yet tried the USB output in this uke. I just considered that an added bonus. The 9V battery just drops in and you click the cover shut. No connector to mess with. I like that a lot.

Overall I give this tenor ukulele pretty high marks for build quality and sound.

I was lucky enough to pick one of these up right after they discontinued them and knocked 50% off the cost. Overall I'm very happy with this purchase.
