Kanile'a 2021 Platinum Tenor Ukulele Limited Edition Koa "Sunset Beach"
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)
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.
*NOTE - You will receive the Kanile'a that is in the PHOTOS
