The Curly Koa Series is the pride of Lanikai. The Lanikai CKB Curly Koa Baritone Ukulele uses Hawaiian Koa that is especially prized for its curly grain and clear tone. Lanikai makes use of this exquisite wood by handcrafting the CKB uke to exacting specifications. Grown mostly on the island of Oahu, the gorgeous red-hued wood used for the Curly Koa series make these ukuleles look as beautiful as they sound.
In its most traditional form the Lanikai CKB is a Baritone ukulele that owes its existence to Portuguese immigrants bringing their craft of music instrument building to Hawaii in the 1870's. The CKB uke comes with die cast tuning machines geared 14/1 for those players that demand greater control over their tuning.
