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

We just lost one of the most amazing musicians to ever live, Willie K. This is his signature model. It was perfect for Willie and we think you will love it just as much. 

"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!

Take a listen-

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!

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.

One of the options for this ukulele is to trade out the Humistat included humidifier for the more expensive Oasis Ukulele Humidifier (OH-18 or OH-5+) at a discount. This is required if you live in a low humidity area (parts of California, Nevada, Arizona, etc.) or also areas with winter seasons, especially if you heat the air in your house. For more info refer to the Ukulele Care link at the bottom of this page. If you think you need to humidify the instrument, then you also need a hard case for a humidifier to properly work, and you need to maintain the humidifier by refilling it as needed.

Put a note in the Special Instructions if you need to or would like to let our setup or shipping department know anything.
