View Full Version : FS Kanile’a ( Kanilea ) K-1 C koa concert ukulele mint condition

01-17-2012, 05:21 PM

Gorgeous Kanile’a, K-1 C, koa Concert ukulele is in mint condition, no cracks, scratches or dents. It looks brand new. The dark figured koa with sap wood makes this one of the prettiest Kanile’a ukes that I've seen. It has the beautiful high gloss UV finish. It is strung with Worth CD strings, in regular high g tuning. The uke comes with the used hard case shown and a humidifier.

This uke was built in 2008 with TRU bracing. The instrument has always been kept in a humidified case, when not played. It was a difficult decision to sell, but have recently purchased a custom koa concert uke and have decided to reduce my collection.

This uke has a full clear, loud, resonant sound. Truly a beautiful sounding uke. It is set up well, frets easily, and is a real pleasure to play. Here is a sound sample of this Kanilea Concert K-1 C with high g Worth CD (hard) strings: http://www.box.com/s/quhv1qchpi2364apiy2i

You just can't beat a Kanile'a. Can you tell me what brand of case you have there? I have a K1 that needs more protection.

That is one of those Palm Tree embossed, plush-lined concert cases, in used condition (a few scratches here and there).

This is really a beautiful concert.

I am sure this one will go very fast. I have not seen any nice concert with that kind of beautiful pattern at that price.
