:eek:Im so excited, Today my wife and i went down to the local music store and i got a new Ukulele. Its a Lanikai LU-21 CE/BK. Its acoustic electric. Well i have to say so far, ive only had it for 3 hours, it plays beautifully, its solid, havent pluged it into an amp yet but, im sure it will sound as it does unplugged.:cool:

Ipicked it up for 150. got a deal on it cause the one i wanted lanikai kept back ordering it so original price was 200 and after tax and a new set of strings it was 147. not bad...lol

Ill try to repost the pics:cool:

Moreys music is off del amo blvd, and woodruff next to the mc donalds. Cost was 150 they had another one like it but it was a wood finish. they also had a tenor same finish... also electric/accoustic.

Nope none that i could hear. accually sounds beautiful. my neighbor has the same one just not electric, and has had it for a few years and he loves it....

Did you have problems with one?

thats the same uke i have :D my first real one

its the same as an lu-21 t which i think is laminated mahogany, but its cool because its black

its great to start off with, real solid uke too sturdy as anything. can take a beating.

i'd change strings tho, stock ones are nasty
