This is the classic gloss koa tenor from Kanile'a but with an ebony fretboard and sand inlay which really compliments the gorgeous Koa body and faceplate. There is a lot of beauty in this wood, as you turn it in the light, pictures won't do it justice. But these pictures are of the exact ukulele available here, if it says "In Stock".

This new version of the K-1 T is the K-1 TE. The E stands for ebony as it has ebony wood for the bridge and fretboard instead of rosewood like the normal 1 series from Kanile'a. This also makes the new E models available for international shipping given the new restrictions on rosewood. It also has Kailua beach sand for the logo and fretboard maker inlays. Something they previously only did on special models. Very natural and attractive.

Pictures show the exact ukulele available here. Video shows same model.

For many of our customers this model has been just what they wanted. A pro level tenor uke that with lively sounds and gorgeous looks! A lifetime instrument from Hawaii. The brand new K1-TE from the Kanile'a Ukulele Company is all those things and would make an excellent choice for your next ukulele. The first video was with the stock Aquila high G set. This video shows it with a Ko'olau Fluorocarbon set with the Fremont soloist low G.

This uke is a lot of fun and incredibly gorgeous. Koa like this is a treat to admire. There's so much character and depth. And Kanile'a builds for those qualities in it's tone as well with it's unique T.R.U. bracing system. What you get is a light weight, resonant tenor, professionally made on Oahu with the finest Big Island koa, and protected with a smooth glossy finish. This an incredible value in a classic Hawaiian tenor!

Includes canvas case, humidifier, final setup & shipping!

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.

Extra Options

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 if you heat the air in your home. For more info refer to the ukulele care link at the bottom of this page. If you think you need to humidify the instrument, then you also need a hard case for a humidifier to properly work, and you need to maintain the humidifier by refilling it as needed. 

One of the options for this ukulele is is to switch from high G tuning (like in the video) to low G tuning. Not sure which you want? Check out our blog article: High or Low G?
