Description

Kanile`a `Ukulele celebrates 20 years with this exquisite Tenor instrument designed by company co-owner and master luthier Joe Souza!

Starting with a 5A Master Grade curly koa solid body and contrasting koa binding, elements of the number 20 can be seen: with emerald green leaves in the rosette, 20 mature koa leaves encircling the sound hole and 20 keiki leaves in the lower center of the rosette. And then there are Kanile`a exclusive enhancements that players of all levels will truly appreciate like the introduction of the all new redesign of the Kanile`a traditional thin slotted headstock outfitted with ultralight 16:1 ratio Gotoh Stealth geared tuners. Add to that the company’s exclusive TRU-R (Total Resonating `Ukulele Redesigned) bracing and a Mass Reduction Channel for even more vibration and resonance and you have an `ukulele that is a delight to play. Only 200 of these timeless instruments will be built. Available only in 2018.
