This Kanile'a custom tenor is beautiful in both look and sound. It features unique Hawaiian koa wood and gives a full rich projection with sparkling highs and a warm body of sustain. We think you'll love the sound, beauty, and quality of this Hawaiian made tenor ukulele.

"Since before Kanile’a was founded, Joe was innovating and creating new and sometimes outrageous designs. His first ‘ukulele was a Concert body with a Tenor neck, now known as a Super-Concert or Long-Neck Concert. Other designs that were pushing the boundaries have made an impact in the ‘ukulele world, like the Guitarlele, Super-Tenor, and the 19″ Tenor scale length.

Having grown up as an `ukulele player Joe understood what might work, and what wouldn’t, from a player’s perspective. It took years to perfect the craft of playing as well as building. Musicianship was taught to Joe by his late mother and his late Aunt starting when he was in the 4th grade. His training as a luthier began with the late, “Uncle” Peter Bermudez in 1991. Though gone, his teachings will never be forgotten. Now his 3 sons, Kaimana, Iokepa, and Kahiau are actively learning and absorbing the knowledge that has been passed down through many generations. Blending new age abilities and paying homage to the education from previous generations, Kanile’a is proud to present the 2020 Limited Edition Platinum."

Act quickly because this is a truly special Hawaiian tenor with a tone that will blow you away.

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.

Custom Options

Want a pickup? We can install the Mi-Si with \rechargeable preamp or the new L.R. Baggs 5.0!

Extra Options

The Herco HE360 is the included humidifier. You can upgrade to the more expensive Oasis Ukulele Humidifier (OH-18 or OH-5+). This is a must 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 see our Ukulele Care link at the bottom of the site.

If you want a different set of strings you can buy them at the strings section and just note that you want us to change them in the Special Instructions.

No extra charge for Low G just write, "Low G" under Special Instructions.
