    FS: Brand New Lanikai LK-1C Concert made by Kanile'a <<SOLD>>

    Wow I hate to do this and I can remember not too long ago trying to convince member Mokai not to sell his. I have a new found interest in taking up guitar so I am thinning out my collection. I am selling a brand new unplayed Lanikai LK-1C Concert size uke. This was made in limited runs by...

    Beginner Books/Guitars

    I've a fairly new uke player (less than a year) and I'm not wanting to try my hand at playing the guitar. I've been doing lots of research the last couple of days and I think I will start off with the Martin LXM due to its construction with HPL (High Pressure Laminate). Think of it as a...

    Man vs. Food Hawaii

    Did anyone see the recent episode where Adam goes to Oahu? I can't believe he attempted that 4 lb pancake. :eek: Next time I go to Hawaii I'm gonna buy one an split it amongst a group of 4. I bet we'll still have leftovers for the next week. Oh and those other places he went too looked good...

    Yet another noob question about strings!!!

    This is kind of a dumb question but I've always wondered about this. Let's say you have a uke thats about a year or two old and has never been played. Do the strings wear out over time, even without playing, due to temperature, humidity, etc.? I guess when in doubt they say just to change them...

    Geared tuner sound!!!

    Hello all I just have a quick question regarding one of my opened geared tuners. On the "E string" tuner as I turn it about 1/4 to 1/2 a turn I'll hear this small noise. It's kind of hard to explain and I wish I could record it. All the other tuners do not make this noise. The uke is brand new...

    UAS filled once again.

    It was a very long 3 days of waiting but my new uke finally arrived yesterday. Its a Kanile'a made Lanikai LK-1C. Its all solid koa and sounds absolutely beautiful. It's a shame they stopped making these. It's basically a K-1 concert without the Kanele'a stamp on the headstock. I am stoked right...

    Island Legends- Torrance CA.

    I just wanted to give a two thumbs up to Todd at Island Legends in Torrance. About a week and a half ago I purchased an all mahogany Kala concert from him however I wasn't quite happy with the wood grain/color. I purchased it anyway as it was his only one. A few days go by and I search all over...
