You can resist Stan! Remember you like a thinner neck on a uke? Beautiful koa though. Maybe you could learn how to recarve the neck...

If you buy it, think what it will be worth in 20 years, why you could double your money, you would be mad not to get it.

Hope this helps :)

I might regret asking this because of all the possible sub-meanings which could drive imaginations wild, but ... So, which necks do you like Stan?

Can't help you, Stan - I say go for it, although Mary has made a very wise observation.

Aloha Pat,
Mary and Kat got it right...these are high end kanilea's, but I just cannot get around the thick necks....that said I like thin fast necks. like on vintage martins, some kamakas, my OU2 etc...

Aloha bruddah Stan! That's a beauty of a uke. Good thing I don't live in Hawaii 'cause all dem Craigslist deals you keep finding. This one is a looker, that's for sure.

A very nice uke just waiting for you Stan. I thought Craiglist was for people with no money trying to sell to people with no money. Something like Kijiji in Canada. The $1800 sure scares me off.

The only reason not to get it are the Aquila strings, other than that it is stunning.

Every time I think maybe I should sell my Kanile'a tenor, as soon as I open the case and pick it up I have a slap forehead moment. I favor Martin and Kamaka necks too, but have no issues with the neck on this one. The sound just goes on an on.

Aloha Stan. You should know better by now to ask us if you should buy a beautiful ululele.

WE LOVE SPENDING OTHER PEOPLES MONEY!!!

No, Stan - you don't want this for $1800. If, as you say, they'll go for $1500 then it will be ok, but not at $1800.


After all, what the heck would you do with it? Neck is too thick for you to play comfortably, you'll worry about scratching the top...

Naw, let it ride.




You can send me the money instead - then I'll think about it. (g)

stan..
if you got the money why not>> you going to play it..i know you not going to let it sit right?
to me the price looks about right..

If it was me spending your money I'd absolutely do it! :P

If you don't like the necks that much, then maybe it's not a good buy... but if you think that uke is good enough at that price to overlook the less than ideal neck or you think you could get used to it, then go for it.

If you honestly just don't care for Kanilea necks though... I guess it doesn't make sense to buy it if you're not going to play it... no matter how choice it looks. Save your money and buy something you will play.

What's the deal with Kanilea necks ? I've never played one but I'm curious. Odd profile ?

mm stan

Nothing wrong just my personal prefernce..I like C shaped and thin and fast necks...

The Big Kahuna
08-14-2012, 11:31 AM
Yep, me too. I was just wondering what was unusual about the Kanilea.

Me too, me too. My first real uke was a Kanile'a soprano. I've played a lot of ukes since then and, for its size, the Kanile'a has a really fat heavy neck. I didn't notice how thick it was until I went to other ukes and liked them so much more. It reminds me almost of the Flea/Fluke neck, which I don't care for either.

My two cents: it's a beautiful instrument but if you already know you're not going to like the neck, then don't buy it. There's someone out there looking for that exact uke with that exact neck size. If you buy it you're basically preventing them from finding their dream uke.
In short: don't think of whether you want the uke or not, think of who would be the best owner for it.

Yes I am too ukulele greedy and should pass and give someone who will appriciate it better.....I know I can shave down the neck, but there is still too many if's....TY
