Lani means "heaven" in the Hawaiian Language. aNueNue wanted to showcase the rich life of Hawaii on the rosette of the Lani ukulele, so they laser-etched a series of Hawaiian petroglyphs around the soundhole. Starting clockwise: a fisherman, a Hono—or Hawaiian Sea Turtle, a dog, paddling men, a hula dancer with a gourd, a fishbone, the Tree of Life, a mountain goat and finally the Rainbow Man, which is also the aNueNue logo.
Classic and simple, just like life in Hawaii.
The Lani S series is made with a solid koa top. Koa is one of the most desirable woods used for ukuleles. Koa offers a soft, warm presence and has a nice midrange sound. The braces were forwarded-shifted and redesigned in the Lani S Series for a fuller, more open sound. aNueNue added Rosewood binding to give it the trendier look. They then redesigned the bridge giving it a mellower sound than our previous model.
