** After being away for almost a month, I have discovered that the Pineapple has developed fret sprout. While not severe, it is annoying. I don't want to sell it if it isn't right. So until I get it fixed, I'm withdrawing it from sale.**

This is an outstanding tenor uke. It's based upon the 2019 Platinum model, but has a paddle headstock, and doesn't have top binding/arm rest, or a side port. Same beautiful, full sound and construction of the Platinum including the True-R bracing.

I am really torn about selling this amazing tenor pineapple. Originally from TUS. I acquired it from the organizer of a benefit auction for Autism. He purchased it from TUS and donated it to the auction. The event was cancelled, so they put it up for sale on Flea Market Marketplace. I bought it for its looks and because of the cause. It was still brand new when I bought it in 2021. I have pt pare down my collection, and I'm starting with this one because I don't play it enough. I put a new set of Uke Logic soft tension pink strings on it.

The condition is excellent, I could not find any flaws other than very faint strumming surface marks on the sound board finish. I couldn’t get them to show up in the photos.

It’s gorgeous! Unfortunately I can’t begin to justify yet another ukulele.
 
Amazing Koa (Kanile'a is great at finding special Koa). I have the Platinum version, these have a bigger sound than the figure 8 bodies!
 
If anyone wants to see higher rez/larger photos or has any questions, just ask. It's a wonderful, tenor with a full sound, yet isn't muddy.
 
Very lovely instrument. Those Kanile'a Pineapple Tenors do sound great, and the grain in that sound hole pic is to die for!
 
Is this still available?
 
I'm interested if this is still available.
