This is a new 2019 model from Kanile'a. It features beautiful Hawaiian koa and an arm bevel for extra comfort when playing. The slothead is the classic squared-off look but with the slim profile for a lighter weight. This has the new TruR bracing, lighter and more resonant! This makes for an excellent sounding lightweight instrument you will love!

The new 2019 models also feature a gloss finish body and smooth "silk" finish neck. This gives you the best in look and feel.

The story on this ukulele is it was equipped with an active Kanile'a pickup and strap button for artists to play at NAMM 2019. We bought it when we were there but took it back to Kanile'a when we got back to touch up the finish. We just got it back in perfectly new condition. SO, we are offering it with the pickup at no additional charge. It's a great sounding and playing Hawaiian instrument we think you'll love. 

Pictures show the exact ukulele here. Video shows the same model.

The KSR series features an elegant slim slothead, and 18:1 geared Gotoh Stealth tuners. This adds to a lightweight, beautiful design, accurate tuning, and an exquisite look.

100% Hawaiian-made by the Kanile'a master builders here, on the island of Oahu, using the finest Koa wood. This particular ukulele is truly beautiful in every way! BUT... most important, it sounds awesome!

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 now offer "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.

Extra Options

One of the options for this ukulele is to trade out the Herco HE-360, included humidifier, for the more expensive Oasis Ukulele Humidifier (OH-18 or OH-5+ for extremely dry climates) at a discount. This is required if you live in a low humidity area (parts of California, Nevada, Arizona, etc.),or areas with winter seasons, especially if you heat the air in your home. For more info, refer to the Ukulele Care link at the bottom of this page. If you need to humidify the instrument, you also need a hard case for a humidifier to properly work. You need to maintain the humidifier by refilling it as needed.
