LU-21C Ukulele Features
There are four common types of ukes out there: soprano, concert, tenor, and baritone. The soprano was the original, followed up quickly with the concert size uke. The 15-inch scale length and slightly larger body size deliver a deeper tone and a bit more volume, while maintaining the sweetness and instantly recognizable ukulele sound.
The Lanikai LU Series
Lanikai's most popular and affordable models, the LU series features classic designs and beautiful wood, with plenty of attention to detail. All LU series ukuleles include an instruction booklet to guide you with these easy to learn instruments.
Nato Top, Back, and Sides
Nato, often referred to as "Eastern Mahogany," delivers wonderful playablility and tone without an accompanying high price tag. Used with Ukeleles, it provides a nice, pronounced mid-range with a mellow high-end.
The body of the LU-21C features white binding, for a nice contrast/framing of the red-tinted finish, and an all-around beautiful instrument.
Just as with guitars, rosewood makes an ideal fretboard tone wood for ukes.
Lanikai's die-cast tuning machines provide solid tuning, so strum away confidently.
The Lanikai brand celebrates a place where heaven meets the ocean and east meets west.

Top customer reviews
+ Rosewood fretboard
+ No buzzing anywhere along the fretboard
+ Stays in tune as you move up the fretboard
+ Very nice, balanced tone, plenty of warmth
+ Comes with Aquila Nylgut strings (i.e. the nice white ones)
+ Overall, very well constructed and easy to play
- The angle of the neck plus the height of the bridge makes the action pretty high. It could and should be a good deal lower.
- Made from nato wood (yet still sounds good--not sure how they managed that!)
- There are some very tiny craftsmanship issues (chrome tuners are a little scuffed, excess glue in a few areas)
Overall, if you are looking for an inexpensive ukulele that still plays and feels like an instrument and not a toy, then you would be hard-pressed to find anything better than the LU-21C.
Now, if you go onto almost ANY amazon uke review, you'll get this, "This thing is a piece of junk. Goes out of tune the second I hit the string. Hate it. Never buying from this seller again." Ok, sometime's that's true, but what those people don't know is.....
It takes a while for uke strings to stretch out.
Magic. So, while people here may say it goes out of tune, that's because they're nice aquilla-gut stings are brand-spanking new, and since they're made out of nylon and gut, they take longer to stretch out.
Shipping: So then they talk about damaged fretboards, body, stuff like that. If you'd rather not have that, I'd recommend wandering over to your local music store. They might even have one that's been on the shelf so the strings will be stretched and ready to play. That's what I did.
Anyway, hope this helped clear some things up :)
I am glad I did get this uke. It is more fun than I have had with music in a long time. The tuners were much better than I had expected, nice sealed tuners. A uke would be a very easy instrument to learn for anyone regardless of musical experience. Four strings, four fingers, perfect.
My wife liked mine so much that we bought her a Lanikai soprano uke and case, along with an identical case for my concert sized uke. She already knows enough chords to play hundreds of songs (in just a few weeks). Her last musical experience was clarinet in high school band many years ago.
I would have given this five stars, but I did have to do some minor adjustments of the nut and saddle to get it playing its best. But a really nice uke if you are wanting to give playing the uke a try. Really fun!
Saw some reviews stating that it goes out of tune quickly, which was true for me when I first started playing it, but keep in mind the strings have to stretch out before they will hold a tune. Once I started playing it more often, I need to tune it *much* less frequently.
