The exotic monkey pod body provides a gorgeous and highly collectible ukulele.
With its solid monkey pod body, Lanikai's SMP-T tenor ukulele has incredible projection with an exotic and enviable appearance. Gold-plated Grover tuning machines ensure long hours of stress-free playing.
The tenor body produces a clear ukulele tone, with a bit more projection than the standard soprano body. It's ideal for on-stage performance—whether rhythmic strumming, or working out some inspired melodies; the projection and clarity of this tenor uke is significant.
Unadorned by synthetic enhancements, this series captures the pure essence and beauty of the natural world. This ukulele features a solid top, back, and sides, slotted headstock, rosewood fingerboard and bridge, maple and rosewood skunk stripe and an ovangkol neck. A custom wide bone nut was used to increase the string spacing, making these ukuleles more comfortable for guitarists who are expanding their sonic palette with the ukulele.
With its easy playability, and the included instruction booklet written by renowned ukulele instructor Mary Lou Dempler, you will be playing in a matter of minutes. If you have never played ukulele before get ready for a world of fun. The ukulele is an addicting instrument that can and should be taken everywhere. If you can play one ukulele you can play them all.
The Lanikai SMP-T tenor ukulele is strung with Aquila Nylgut strings.

Comments about Lanikai SMP-T Solid Monkey Pod Tenor Ukulele:
This is a good uke with stunning looks. At first the tone was not there, but after a few months it opened up and now has tone to boot. The fit and finish is good, but not perfect, so expect some slight imperfection. Tuners work well, set up required shaving the saddle a bit. Changed strings to Pro Artes to mellow it out a bit. Would be fine to take on stage.
