Looking at this new K1 on ebay:
http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/151129658445?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649

The one thing that worries me is the tuners.
The tuners one my K1 & pics of others I've seen are 4 separate tuners, with silver coloured knobs.

What do you think, would these be original?

Nice find! Is this the same ukulele as the one on Ebay, the photos look to be the same?

I just googled the description on the e-bay aid "Kanile'a K-1 Satin Concert Ukulele" too find it.

Yes, appears to be the same uke from the same seller.
Hmmmm, still don't know about those tuners...

Here is a Kanilea K1-TSF at HMS with the same tuners so they do appear to be using this style...

Me too.

I've had the one piece tuners on a new Kanilea like in the OP's pic.

Thanks Kdogg, that answers the question.

Now to have serious argument with conscience about whether I really need another K1 so I can string it low G, whether to sell Ko'Aloha first... or maybe buy this one instead:

I know, but it's glossy! I just prefer a satin finish.

Anyway, the seller of the ebay uke replied to my questions & reassured me the tuners are original Kanile'a gear.

The satin one is a beauty too! Good luck with the auction.
