    Hi, I am selling a mint Kanile'a tenor in the gloss finish. I have had it about a month and shortly after I got it I was fortunate enough to fall into a vintage Gibson tenor uke and a vintage Martin baritone, that, and I had already planned on a Mya-Moe custom build so the Kanile'a has to go. It is in the buy and sell and comes with a case for $850 including shipping. A great way to save some dough and come in under your budget. By the way, I own 2 "vintage" Taylors and multiple vintage Gibsons and Martin guitars. Welcome to the forum - the ukes are a hoot. Beware, though, after playing the uke for a while, your Taylor will feel like it has a 3 inch nut width. Cheers, Tim

    2. A K-1 tenor deluxe with upgrades. Aquilla stings Low g. This beauty has an upgraded rich, dark reddish curly koa, high gloss UV finish, upgraded gold plated grover tuners, K&K passive pick-up, professionally installed strap button on the neck. Two weeks ago I had Jake Shimabukuro play at my theatre. When I opened the case, he saw it and was impressed by its physical beautiful. then he played "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" on it and said it had a really great tone. It now has his mojo on it :-) He said it was still opening up and getting even more beautiful. he said, "Just keep playing it-- it is beautiful." It has that great Hawaiian percussive sound when you strum which is great for rhythmic strumming. The tone is rich and full, percussive, deep, and resonant. Good sustain. low action. no buzz. Not a scratch or ding on it. Perfect condition. I am posting for $1100 but will take $1K
    If you decide that kanilea is for you-- let me know.

    I am selling one of the my Kanile'a tenors because I don't need two. Here is what I have:
    1. A custom super tenor based on the K-1 style, premium curly koa, satin finish, Aquilla strings with low g. it is so light it is incredible. The satin finish allows it to fully resonate with a super rich sound. You can hear every note in a stemmed chord.
    Since it is a custom and premium koa I am selling for $1100, but will offer it higher so there is room to negotiate to the $1100 I want for it. Wonderfully low action-- no buzz at all. Crystal clear sound. Not a scratch on it-- perfect condition

    If you decide to go kanile'a for the tenor, I have two and I am putting one up for sale later in the week. I'll give you my thoughts on both and on the K brands. For me, I love the Kanilea tenor and super tenor. Nothing like them, but you have to decide what your ear likes. I had a KoAloha Sceptre for two weeks and then sold it. it was gorgeous, but I did not like the sound compared to my two Kanile'a. I think that Koaloha has nailed the concert down. The Sceptre sounded too much like my concert. it has the bright brilliant traditional ukulele sound. If I am playing Hawaiian music, I go to the KoAloha concert and it is perfect--- amazing. But I don't like that sound in a tenor. I love the Kanilea tenor because it is a rich, full, resonant sound, especially with low g. I don't want my tenor to sound like a concert or soprano. I want deeper, fuller. If I am playing a pop song, or singer-songwriter, or even jazz, I go with the Kanilea. continued......
