Over the weekend I saw a Tenor Kanile'a K-1T on ebay, and to my surprise it was in the Uk. I PM'd itsmeCasey as i Knew he had one,and I didn't want to start a thread just in case I encouraged anyone else to bid on it, and he assured me that I couldn't go wrong with Kanile'a. So to cut a long story short I bought it, bidding 510, which was 10 over the only other bidder. I collected it in person and was totally blown away by the quality and sound. It came with a pod case and all the original tags and was in absolutely mint condition, I can't express how happy I am with it, the chap even knocked the 10 off making it a round 500.
I've spent most of the weekend looking at it. Now I need to name "her" any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, I've never named any of my Ukes but this one deserves one.
Thanks itsmeCasey for your advice.
In the next few days I will be putting my Mainland Tenor in the Market place, so anyone in the Uk looking for one, keep an eye out.

Congrats on your new uke - enjoy. As far as a name - why don't you call it Kanile'a.

Congrats on the new uke! Those Kanile'as are really nice. I am glad it found a good home with you. Can't help with a name until I see a photo. I haven't really named any of my ukes, they get a pretty generic descriptive name. So boring, I know.

An extra good uke is always nice to keep. Loaner, different tuning, etc.
There are some places I go I am just not comfortable taking one of the big guns.

I'm still amazed at how good it is, the intonation is spot on and it sounds like a dream, the build quality is out of this world.
Rae it hasn't got a pickup but it's mint.
