Kanile`a `Ukulele does a limited edition "Platinum" model each year. This is a special instrument designed by company co-owner, and master luthier, Joe Souza, and only made that year. For 2019 Joe gives us a gorgeous pineapple tenor. It sounds big and warm and looks amazing!
This instrument's 5A Master Grade curly koa solid body is contrasted with ebony binding and arm bevel. It has their new bracing and a pineapple shaped sound hole adding to the awesome tone you get from the 2019 Platinum.
Kanile`a makes exclusive enhancements that players of all levels will truly appreciate. Like the introduction of the all-new redesign of the Kanile`a traditional thin slotted headstock, outfitted with ultralight 16:1 ratio Gotoh Stealth geared tuners. With the company’s exclusive TRU-R (Total Resonating `Ukulele Redesigned) bracing and a Mass Reduction Channel, for even more vibration and resonance, you have a `ukulele that is a delight to play. Only a handful of these instruments will be built. Available only in 2019.

Kanile'a has long been known for their meticulous design and astounding tone. This tenor is a prime example of what these Hawaiian builders are giving to the world. Kanile'a regularly has the nicest koa wood. Beyond the beauty, though, is a fantastic instrument with an open voice and a strong projection. Extra attention is given to these high-end models. You can see and hear it!
This Kanile'a limited edition tenor has excellent resonance and sustain. It can boom but is dynamically controllable. It's one of the best sounds you will find in the ukulele world. With the Premium Kanile'a koa every piece of koa is unique. This one is undeniably gorgeous and quite the treat to play.
Includes a custom gig case and humidifier!
