Islander by Kanile'a - Mahogany Tenor Ukulele w/Pickup

This was the model that really put Islander on the map. The MT-4 has such a big warm tone while still retaining the bright qualities that are uniquely ukulele. 

The Islander has a 1.5" nut width allowing a little more space when compared to the 1 3/8" most companies do. That aspect makes it popular for those with larger hands or just players that want more space for chording. 

This tenor is equipped with a pickup and onboard EQ.

Corey gives a raw sound sample of the MT-4.

If you are looking for an affordable , high quality sound in a tenor ukulele, this Islander MT-4 may be just right!

"The Islander Mahogany Series Ukulele offers a very bright yet balanced traditional Hawaiian tone that is so synonymous to this wonderful instrument. Our time-honored approach allows these instruments have a very clean, authentic ukulele look to them."

What is our "setup"? We don't make these ukuleles. We make them better! This includes saddle and nut heights, fret work (planing/ recrowning/ polishing), intonation checks, and a thorough inspection for major cosmetic flaw. You can usually find some kind of sign of human construction with these, so if you're super picky about that, this might not be your perfect uke. But we first weed out any obvious cosmetic or structural issues, then the setup work we include for free dials in the feel and tone and that's where this value will be hard to beat. The current special is about as good as it gets.

Setup Options

Most people shop with us because of the extensive quality control and final setup work we provide at no extra cost on all ukuleles we ship out. However this is time consuming work and creates a delay in shipping. We are now offering an "Expedited Setup" for those wanting to receive their instrument faster. See details on the Full Setup and Expedited Setup options along with current turnaround times for each at the link- HERE.

This listing is unique for us. It has  NO SETUP option. We have rejected the majority of stock. What you get will still be approved. But we will not improve the action or playability. Our setup work takes more time than the profit is on items like this so we wanted to offer a better deal for those that can do that themselves or are not worried about it.

After adding this instrument to your cart, you can still create your own package by adding a case or accessories from the website.

Great entry level ukulele
I'm really impressed with this ukulele. Yes, it's an entry level laminate ukulele, but I can't get over how nice it is, how well it plays, and how much fun it is to play for being such an affordable instrument, and it sounds great. I'm super glad I bought this ...and this is coming from someone who has a Kanile'a K-3 Tenor! I highly recommend this ukulele for anyone, beginner to more advanced players. Well worth the money. And Joel did an excellent job with the set up.
