What on Earth is a Kīkū?
When an instrument evolves past its traditional design and sings with a voice that is unlike any other, it stands out from the crowd and it stands alone. Such an instrument deserves a spotlight and begs for its own distinct name. So it is that the name Kīkū (pronounced kee koo) was born. It is a term coined by Zanuck Lindsey and Nara Cardenas. Lichty Guitars is proud to have been chosen to design and craft a custom Kīkū as a part of a collaboration between Kimo Hussey and Zanuck.
Note: Based on our baritone uke platform, the Kiku can also be built on a tenor scaled body size
