Kanile'a 2021 Platinum Tenor Ukulele Limited Edition Koa "Game Changer" #004
In baseball the #4 hitter is the Clean Up hitter because he is the Power Hitter and always drives in the runs.
This Kanilea 2021 Platinum Tenor is #004 and is the Game Changer. Sure #001-003 are cool but this on has the power. Just one look at the Koa wood on this ukulele is jaw dropping.
For 2021 Kanilea went back to a standard tenor (not a super tenor) ukulele. As usual Kanilea founder Joe Souza pushed the boarders of ukulele building with super unique "flame" sound hole and sound port. Matter of fact this "flame" theme goes throughout this entire uke including the fret markers, headstock, and even on the saddle.
Joe always chooses the most stunning Master Grade koa wood, although this wood is so incredible I have labelled it "Jedi Knight" grade wood. This uke also features a slanted armrest, scalloped body for easy access to higher frets, slotted headstock, Gotoh Stealth Tuners, Radiused Fretboard, and Curly Maple binding.
SURPRISE - Kanilea engineered a removable magnetic back plate (you have to see to believe)
In 2020 Kanilea made 51 of the Platinums. No matter how many they make you know you will have #004 the "Game Changer."
The `Ukuleles For Tree Lovers! For Every `Ukulele Built, 1 Koa Tree Is Planted.

* CUSTOM SETUP - Each Kanilea comes with a factory setup BUT I strongly recommend adding a setup especially if you want the easiest playability, have arthritis, or are particular about your setups and want a low action (how close the strings are to the fretboard) please click the "ADD Custom Setup" on this page.
* REQUIRED FOR WARRANTY - I cannot stress how important a humidifier is and I HIGHLY encourage you to get one. No matter where you live humidifiers not only protect your investment but also help the warranty process go smoother because you have taken the steps to ensure the safety and protection of your ukulele. If you ever have to file a claim with Kanilea the first question they will ask if you have a humidifier.
* Either the Oasis OH-18 (OH-32 for extra dry areas) or the Boveda Humidifier are recommended and available here at store.ukelikethepros.com. Click "ADD Humidifier"
*A PICKUP (several brands available) - click ADD Pickup . Normal install times are 2-3 weeks. If you want your instrument sooner please use the RUSH pickup option.
