    Well, it’s less than the 2018 Platinum...

    I posted over on the "How your uke found you" thread, how I bought the prototype of this Platinum Limited Edition pineapple right off the shelf in the finishing room during the 1st Kanile'a Factory Tour of 2019. It was literately put right into my hands! Can't put it down, my other ukes are getting jealous! The sound is amazing, big, full but still very clean and tons of volume! Even the custom fitted case is amazing. It's the 1st tenor pineapple from any of the Big K builders I believe.

    Oh man, can't afford the Platinum model, maybe a copper or dirty iron ore edition! :-)

    Very cool story, rhiggie, congratulations on your new uke! What a beauty!

    The only other Hawaiian K brand that has built a pineapple tenor in the past is Ko'olau:
