Lanikai’s new Oak Series of ukuleles offers a triple matched grain (top, back and sides) with a satin finish and chrome open back tuning keys that make for a lighter headstock that results in less hand fatigue.

A premium quality Graphtech Nubone XB nut and saddle offers better tone and projection, and all models are strung with D’Addario strings, select models offer a Fishman Kula preamp and tuner, and all models ship with a 10mm padded gig bag. The New Oak Series ukuleles include strap buttons for performance and is covered by a Limited-Lifetime warranty.

The new Oak Series ukuleles are available in Soprano, Concert, Concert Electric, Tenor, Tenor Electric, Baritone and Baritone Electric (Baritones are equipped with truss rods for neck adjustments if needed). These oak ukes have a bright crisp tone with comfortable playability and striking looks from the wide bold grain patterns of Oak.

Lanikai has also announced the addition of two new Purple Stained Quilted Maple ukuleles to the existing line-up of Trans Black, Blue, Red or Natural. The new Trans Purple Concert and Tenor Cutaway Electric have a vibrant, yet sophisticated look enhancing any performer’s appearance on stage.

The Quilted Maple ukuleles carry Premium quality components, that are standard for Lanikai, Graphtech NuBone XB nut and saddle, wide comfortable neck profile, D’Addario strings, Grover Machines, and Fishman pickup/tuner, foam case and a Limited-Lifetime Warranty. From an intimate acoustic stage to a concert stage a Lanikai quilted maple series is an excellent choice.
