Buy it!
I bought this uke from HMS based on Aaron's video. Never mind that I think he could string a brick and make it sound good, it was the sound I liked the best at a great price. I was not disappointed. It has a wonderful, smooth resonant tone that seems to be characteristic of spruce tops. Now this is coming from a rank novice with barely a year of practice. But if at least part of the purpose of a good uke is to make you want to play more, than this is the one you want.
Thanks Aaron. You da man!

Islander
I love this ukulele. It's the only one I play now. I used to play a Kala. But, I like this one much more. It feels just like my Dad's Kanilea.

Great for guitar players
Got this for my sister's birthday. She was a lifelong guitar player but her guitars had been sitting in their cases for a few years.

Since I stated playing the 'ukulele she wanted one and her first was a Koaloha super concert. She played that for a few months and then said she was looking for something with more of a guitar sound.

I saw the demo of the Islander spruce top and bought it for her birthday -- she hasn't stopped playing it! she loves the projection of the spruce top. the cutaway allows her to play all the way up the fret board.

The Islander is a great value. Less than half the cost of the KoAloha (she still loves the KoAloha sound) but it gets 99% of the playing time.

Very nice Ukulele
My son has been playing ukulele's for several years and he is a very good player. He has played in front of some very large crowds and is always well received. His Islander cut away Tenor is the only uke he plays. It has a MiSi pickup and strap pin installed. I love the fact that the Islander has a 1.5" nut like all of the Hawaiian made Kanile'a ukuleles have. Most imported ukuleles have a narrower nut. When my son upgrades to a Kanile'a Tenor the transition will be seemless because the Islander and the Kanile'a have the same dimensions. I also like the fact that Islanders are set up by Joe and his gang at Kanile'a and then double checked by Andrew and his gang at HMS, you are not going to get that kind of service if you buy an ukulele ANYWHERE else.

Islander KSTCUT Tenor is fabulous
I was looking for a non-amped ukulele to play in hospital, nursing home and similar settings where I volunteer when heard about Kanilea Islander's KSTCUT Tenor. I bought one and have been awed by this instrument! It is loud but mellow and not brash. It allows the playing of various genres without sounding boring. The KSTCUT is well made, stays in tune, and has a cutaway for those wanting to play way up the neck. The tuners are substantial, the one piece neck is smooth and comfortable. From the satin finish to the maple binding to the abalone sound hole trim, to the maple strip up the back of the body, there is elegance and detail that makes this ukulele a fine looking instrument. I do wish it had a pick guard though. I play only using bare fingers but I have noticed that my nails are leaving their mark on the spruce top. Overall, I can't say enough good things about this wonderful ukulele. I'm retired, haven't won the lottery, and need a great sounding instrument that won't break the bank. This is it. The KSTCUT Tenor is a VERY BEST BUY!

Great Uke!
This is my second ukulele and I am loving this little beauty. I have been a guitar person for years and know about build quality of stringed instruments. This is easily on par with the build quality of a Martin guitar. Flawless construction and great intonation across the entire fretboard make this a bargain for the price. You would be hard-pressed to find a better uke under $400.
