    Default Why Lanikai!!! Why....

    alright so if some of you dont already know about my situation, i bought a tenor lanikai lu-21 i think. and it had a lame problem
    check this tread out- http://www.ukuleleunderground.com/fo...read.php?t=610

    so i think ive given up on lanikai, i wanna buy something else, maybe a kala so i was wondering if anyone knew any good and decent tenor ukuleles with a budget of 250

    keep in mind, that the mahogany, mango, and the koa ones are not solid top construction. but the tops do add something to the overall tone of the uke. personally i would go with either the mango or the spruce. i just love how the mango looks. but i would expect the truest sound to come from the solid sprucetop.

    Hi,

    Check out the PONO PTO. It cost 400$ but it's really amazing for the price.
    If you look for a solid mahogany ukulele that will last for years, thats the one.
    I have a PONO and a KALA, bought are good but the PONO is simply perfect.

    Solid mean real pieces of wood and not laminated wood (sheets of wood glued together). A solid construction sounds way better, more natural sound.... And the ukulele will last longer.

    just a thought but maybe that is why it was 100 dollars. because it was messed up. i just baught a lanikai concert and it was almost 200. everything on it is beautiful no blemishes anywhere. did you try to take it back???
