    Default Kanilea platinum pineapple tenor

    Do you own one? Have to played one? What do you think about it?

    I own a Kanilea Pineapple tenor. I really dig the sound, it sound specially nice with chord melodies incorporating more jazzed up chords. It has a good ring and a full sound (the big body really does make a difference). The sound is balanced.
    I really like the feel of the Kanilea neck.
    What are your thoughts?

    I'm hoping they will make one without the cheesy sound port. It's the only thing that puts me off. Well, that and the price! A 'standard' non bling Kanile'a Tenor Pineapple would be great.

    I think YogiTom used to have one. He’s kind of inactive now but maybe he would pop up to share more.

    Here’s his NUD for the platinum pineapple:

    I have one, really love it. I have it set up as my low-g tenor with a Fremont Soloist. It got a great boomy sound (in a good way), a real cannon. Use it for all of my low-g chord melodies as well as jazzier pieces and I agree, it's a great instrument for those.
    The one problem I have with it is that I prefer a radius fretboard.
