Beautiful instrument. And indeed, great sound too. This is definitely a welcome addition to Kanilea's lineup.
But looking at the closeups of the headstock, it becomes clear that Gilbert Tuners are worth the bucks for aesthetics. For me, the chunky headstock just looks incomplete with the small Grover tuners.

Wow! I have to say though, almost too much figure for my taste. Ebony overlay on the headstock looks great.

I can't decide if I love it or - not. It reminds me of Tanning Mom, although if any uke reminds me of Tanning Mom, it should be my all-rosewood Pono tenor.

This one is not as easy to string.

Yes, rosewood top, too. I have a picture, but not a good one. Here it is with its Blackbird brother. I absolutely love it.
