Super High Tech, Mega Gloss, Polimer Based Paint Pens. Ok, they were just regular paint pens and the palm tree was already pressed into the case. So I just traced it.

Your case looks great. (Kanile'a looks great too!)

Might I ask, which brand case is that? I'm looking to get a hard case for my Kanile'a and I don't know which brand I want to get yet...

I don't know the name of the manufacturer, but I have 2 others just like it for my other Kanile'a Tenor and my Kamaka Concert. I found it on ebay for $59.00. But it had a best offer option and the seller took $40.00. Here is the link to the item I bought. Search the seller to see if they have another one.

I've got one of those cases. Not a bad case. I like what you did to yours! But I doubt that paint job would look too good on mine since I've already covered mine in stickers.

I think I paid $50 for mine. No idea what brand it is either. Looks like you got a good deal on yours!

I bought an old baritone and the case was real ugly, so I made it uglier.
