The Lanikai FM-CEC is a beautifully crafted cutaway concert ukulele featuring a flame maple top that delivers full, classic concert uke tone. The FM-CEC features a wider nut for a slightly wider neck that makes playing the FM-CEC more comfortable. A gorgeous walnut fingerboard offers great response as well, whether you're chording or playing lead. A NuBone XB nut and saddle also provide tonal support to the already tone-rich maple body. This concert uke is ideal for living room jams or warm nights on the beach around a fire with friends. When you are ready to plug in, the FM-CEC has a Fishman Kula preamp onboard to deliver stellar amplified tone. Uke enthusiasts here at Sweetwater love the FM-CEC for its playability and tone.
