    Like I said, Elderly has it listed for $599, which puts it on the lower end of the same ballpark as Pono and Godin. I'd love to see some head-to-head comparisons.

    Blue Star 19" baritone Konablaster - DGBE

    Since I got free shipping for my Pono from HMS to Singapore plus a gorgeous hard case, it's about the same price for me as the Lanikai. Most importantly, I also get the excellent HMS assurance and set up.

    I love my Pono TE Mango: looks great, built great, sounds great.
    In order of purchase:

    Blackbird Tenor
    Blackbird Clara
    Boat Paddle A-style tenor (spruce/walnut)
    Pono TE Mango Deluxe
    Koaloha KTM-00-R
    Kinnard Series 2 tenor (cedar/Honduran rosewood)
    Barron River custom tenor (Huon pine/Aussie Blackwood)
    Outdoor tenor in Bottle Brown
    Outdoor tenor in Camouflage

    So I guess the question is, what does the Lanikai do that the Pono doesn't?

    Looks a lot like the prototype that Imua presented at NAMM last year. I think someone here mentioned that Lanikai is getting their US made ukes from Imua.

    I think it looks great. At that price point, and being made in the USA too, I don't know why it wouldn't be a huge contender for that kind of instrument. Also, I've dealt with Elderly Instruments for years. They are exceptional.

    Old thread, but does anybody know which piezo pickup they use in these? Just picked one up on a deal and was going to avoid opening it if somebody already knew. Thanks
