These are photos of a previously built `ukulele. Please keep in mind that this is a sample. In the world of wood products because woods vary from one piece to another you will not find two pieces the same. The photo gives you an idea of what the accessories look like as well as the shape and size. The woods will always vary in grain, curls and color.
Every instrument we build, with the exception of an eight string, may be equipped with a “G” fourth course (196Hz) fixed with a 0.029" wire-wrapped nylon-core string for no extra charge. The woven G-string is tuned an octave lower, which gives a richer sound and opens a wider picking range. In addition each Kanile’a ‘Ukulele, with the exception of our Baritones and Sopranos, can be upgraded to a multiple stringed instrument. All of our six and eight string instruments come with a 1/8" x 3/8" Carbon Fiber (Graphite) rod inserted into the neck. This Carbon Fiber rod adds significant strength to the neck and improves instrument tonal response.
Our GL6 is a hybrid instrument that Joe developed to bring the convenience of the ‘ukuleles’ size with the chord playability that guitar players love. This instrument has our unique Super Tenor body in combination with our 20 inch Baritone scale joined at the body on the 16th fret with 22 frets total. The tuning of this wonderful instrument is “A D G C E A” or the same tuning as a guitar with a capo at the fifth fret. The volume and resonance that projects from this instrument is phenomenal. Hear for yourself a new voice that is appealing to both the ‘ukulele and guitar aficionado.
