This is a Hawaiian-made ukulele with a soprano sized bidy and a concert length neck. Tortoise binding frames off the curly koa wood and Paua abalone shell is used to perfectly inlay the Hawaiian petroglyph Honu or Sea Turtle.
Sea turtles, the true ancients of the world, have been swimming the oceans for over 200 million years. In Hawaii, legend tells about a green sea turtle, Kauila, who could change herself into a girl to watch over the children playing. This wonderful creature is a symbol of wisdom and of our Pacific islands. And this is the first time we've gotten it with the Kailua Beach sand inlay for the position markers in the upgraded ebony fretboard.
A beautiful new Kanile'a with a sweet tone you can hear as Corey gives us a sample.

This unique musical uke will certainly be the prize of your collection. It has the classic soprano tone, but with a little more clarity, and the concert scale gives you a bit more room.
