Kanilea KPE-T Tenor Premium


Another stellar offering from our friends at Kanile'a! There is something so beautiful and so elegant in the simple design of the pāua abalone with its black-white-black trim. This instrument captures it delightfully on the foundation of Hawaiian curly koa. Add to that the clean, bold look of an ebony fingerboard, bridge and head plate finished off with black closed geared tuners and ivoroid buttons and you've got a stunning playable masterpiece. Comes in a Canvas semi-hard shell case.
