There is no denying that Kanile'a has some really nice koa. Even the most basic level koa they use like on this model is very beautiful. This has tone to match with that big vibrant sound, dynamic and clean at lower volumes and full of power as you dig in.
This is the new version of this model with ebony for the fretboard and bridge along with Kailua beach sand maker inlays.
Playing an instrument of this caliber is a wonderful experience. It has a lush sustain and a crisp clarity. It's amazing to look at and a joy to play! Don't hesitate to add this wonderful instrument to your collection. Pictures show the actual instrument for sale here. Video demo shows the same model.
So what is the difference between natural and gloss? Besides the look being more "natural", you also get a more "woody" tone from the satin finish. The new Kanile'a satin protects better than their old oil hand rubbed finish because it's still the UV lacquer coat. Yet it's still a thinner finish and this is a very open and vibrant sounding instrument.
