The Lanikai QM-BLCEC is a beautifully crafted cutaway concert ukulele made from gorgeous quilted maple that delivers classic concert uke tone. The QM-BLCEC features a wide nut for a slightly wider neck that makes playing the QM-BLCEC more comfortable. A gorgeous walnut fingerboard offers great response as well, whether you're chording or playing lead. A NuBone 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 QM-BLCEC Kula electronics deliver stellar amplified tone. Uke enthusiasts here at Sweetwater love the QM-BLCEC for its playability and tone.
