Description

Details

The Hawaiian-made tenor pictured is "the one" now available! (If it says "In Stock").

If you ever get the chance to experience Willie K playing this model Kanile'a, take the opportunity to be truly blown away. Willie is an incredible, mind blowing musician, and so naturally his custom model is just as awesome.

"The remarkable musical career of Willie Kahaiali’i — known as Willie K — spans a range so broad it seems to reach from the deepest bass to the sweetest soprano. From traditional and contemporary Hawaiian to blues and rock, he’s done it all and done it well." Star Advertiser - Steven Mark

His signature Kanile'a model is equally impressive. Design features include

  • 5-string with high and low G
  • Sleek scoop cutaway for access to the highest frets
  • Smooth arm bevel for extra comfort
  • Custom rosette inlay of Hawaiian implement
  • Custom sand inlay fretmarkers and signature
  • Premium GORGEOUS curly koa
  • "Super" body size and 19" scale give super amazing tone!

Our sound samples are completely dry and we are dedicated to showing true tone. Use quality speakers or headphones for the most accurate listening.

Kanile'a has long been known for their meticulous design and astounding tone. This is a prime example of what these Hawaiian builders are giving to the world. Kanile'a regularly has the nicest koa wood you will ever see. 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 and you can hear it.

This style "super tenor" is something unique to Kanile'a. It's "super" because of the size of its body, but this one also has the longer 19" scale giving more resonance and sustain and intonating great all the way up the neck. 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's every piece of koa is unique. This one is is quite the looker. Don't hesitate to add this gorgeous and rare tenor to your collection. We guarantee you'll love it!

Includes a hardshell case and humidifier!
