Kanile'a Cedar Top Granadillo Tenor (Custom T)

Availability: Out of stock



New Rare Custom Western Red Cedar Top Granadillo Kanile'a Tenor!

This custom tenor is 100% Hawaiian Made here on the island of Oahu. We ordered it to these specs to make what we felt would be the ultimate Kanile'a. Cedar tops have always been a favorite of ours. This adds to the full, warm, and "open" sound on this tenor and pairs perfectly with this Central American exotic hardwood, Granadillo.

We also had Kanile'a use the Gotoh UPT tuners for the sleek look and light weight. This also comes with the new, super nice Kanile'a gig bag case. Very protective and stylish for easy travel. 

Pictures and video show the exact one available here.  

Granadillo is informally considered a type of rosewood. Sonically, it’s comparable to Indian rosewood, but it’s harder and denser, yielding an additional bell-like ring. The wood traditionally has been used for marimba bars because of its clear, chimey tone. Classical guitar makers later borrowed it and have been using it for at least 50 years. Pairing granadillo with a Sitka spruce top will yield clear, ringing, long-sustaining notes. It tends to be very limited in availability.

Goes Well With: A variety of body shapes and playing styles. If you like clear, bell-like tone and the sound of a rosewood guitar, granadillo will probably appeal to you. - Taylor Guitars

If you're looking for a fantastic tenor, consider this custom Kanile'a. It's a rare special instrument that sounds and feels great. 

Includes our gold standard in ukulele setup and shipping. If it says in stock, then don't hesitate to add this Hawaiian beauty to your collection. We guarantee you love it!

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.

One of the options for this ukulele is to trade out the Herco HE-360 included humidifier for the more expensive Oasis Ukulele Humidifier (OH-18 or OH-5+) at a discount. This is required if you live in a low humidity area (parts of California, Nevada, Arizona, etc.) or also areas with winter seasons, especially if you heat the air in your house.

Put a note in the Special Instructions if you would like to let our setup or shipping department know anything. 

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

Under the Accessories tab you can also customize this instrument by adding strap button(s) or your choice of pickup for plugging in.
