Kanile’a K1 Solid Koa Tenor Ukulele 2009

Kanile’a K1 Koa (2009) Tenor Ukulele

This Kanile’a K1 Tenor Ukulele, made in 2009, has a Select Koa Body, which has been Quarter Sawn and air dried, for proper seasoning and to prevent cracking.   It has a South American Mahogany neck and Indian Rosewood fretboard and bridge, with Mother of Pearl position markers on the front and topside of the fingerboard at the 3rd, 5th, 7th and 10th position and double markers at the 12th and 15th.  Kanile’a ukuleles have 14 to 1 ratio chrome geared vintage Grover tuner keys, designed specifically for the ukulele and Aquila Corde Nylgut strings.   This ukulele boasts the unique Kanile’a satin finish, which allows for vibration and elasticity of the well-seasoned Koa wood, for greater projection, volume and resonance, while protecting the wood.

As with all Kanile’a ukuleles, this K1 Tenor has their distinct rounded back and wider lower bout body shape and comes with a hard shell plush case.  This ukulele is in absolutely perfect, as new condition, with no traces of nicks, scuffs or damage to any part of the instrument.  The Select Koa wood is perfectly bookmatched with a symmetrical grain for a striking finish.  Kanile’a take special care to ensure consistency in the thickness of the tonal woods, which is what ultimately results in their instruments’ unique sound and has allowed them to become industry leaders.

Each wood component of all Kanile’a ukuleles is built in house, in Hawaii, by their highly skilled artisans, including their hand split Sitka Spruce Total Resonating Ukulele (TRU) bracing system and kerfed lining.  Their expert technicians setup each ukulele to ensure that the action (height of the string over the fret) is perfect for ease of playability and inspect every Kanile’a ukulele for consistency and accuracy.  If you are looking for a uke with perfect intonation and a ringing sound like no other, then look no further than this Kanile’a Tenor.  We promise you won’t be disappointed.
