Lanikai LU-21B Ukulele

3.65/5 (1)

Please rate this

The LU-21 is the ukulele that Lanikai is most famous for. It’s a huge hit with beginners, with good reason. It’s a well made uke with geared tuners (essential on a cheap uke). The LU-21B is one of the best options for beginners looking to buy a baritone uke.

It’s made of Nato wood – which is advertised as an alternative to mahogany but is a long way from it. Still it’s very suitable for a beginner uke and has the advantage of being much cheaper.

    The LU-21B is advertised as a mahogany instrument. No where in ads have I seen Nato or Laminate. Which is it?

    Dave: It’s listed on Amazon as nato. If it doesn’t say ‘solid mahogany’ it won’t be solid mahogany.

Got something to say?
