Kanile'a E-SILK C All Solid Koa Concert Ukulele
This Hawaiian made concert is a great mix of tradition and modernity, with the looks of island-made instruments from the throughout the years, with some cutting edge innovation that really lift it into the highest echelons of uke making.
The all solid koa body is finished in UV gloss, which is then taken back to satin, giving excellent protection without the gloss - which isn't everyone's cup of tea. It also has a lovely smooth ebony fingerboard, open geared tuners, a nubone compensated saddle and a nice roomy 38mm nut.
The tone is bright, but full, with some really stunning complexity. It sings well, with excellent sustain - aided by Kanile'a's clever bracing system, and pushed on that little bit further by the not-gloss-but-gloss finish (work that one out!)
It is supplied in an utterly brilliant carbon fibre hard case too.
