I was lucky enough to purchase another wonderful John S. Kinnard instrument recently, and couldn't be happier. This is the Series 2 model tenor which is designed as a players model, beautifully built using the finest materials but not overloaded with bling. The craftsmanship that goes into these instruments is truly outstanding.

Here are the specs;
Indian rosewood back and sides
Sitka spruce top
Gloss finish
Mahogany neck
Side sound port
Herringbone rosette
Radius rosewood bridge and fretboard
Ivoroid bindings
Rosewood faceplate
Gotoh UPT tuners
Fretmarkers
Bone nut and saddle

Campbell, congrats on the Kinnard. They are so fine, I'm not surprised at all you went for another. It has often crossed my mind to do the same one day. That spruce top is a beauty and I love how it brightens the sound to my ear.

In case anyone admiring Campbell’s might be interested and given it is also spruce/EIR, I should’ve mentioned that Shawn at Ukulele Friend has a previously owned Kinnard Series 2 with some upgrades for $1,800. I played it when I visited his showroom and thought it was quite a good value.

Another beautiful Kinnard, Campbell. And as always, you bring out the best in it. Your NUD videos make playing the ukulele look so effortless and easy, but the rest of us know that is not necessarily the case. Well done!

Can't say it any better than Dana said it.
Very happy for you mate.
