Lanikai K-T

Continuing the stories of our individual ukuleles with this Lanikai, which appears to be a model that is no longer made. It was bought around 10 years ago in San Francisco.


"I purchased the Lanikai at the music store at Haight & Ashbury. I was asked to play ukulele for a concert...so I ran and bought an uke and started playing it that day on the streets in San Francisco...and that's how my ukulele days began.



I got this one because I just loved the sound. Because I've been playing guitar, the size I felt was better for my fingers at the time. It's just got a lovely sound. I bought special strings for it. Nice, fine, lightweight. This stays in tune like nobody's business."
