PLATINUM 2017 LIMITED EDITION Super Concert `Ukulele


The 2016 Platinum Edition Kanile`a

The Kanile`a Platinum series was introduced to stretch the creativity and skills of master luthier Joe Souza and his expert team of luthiers affectionately known as the “Kanile`a Krew.” The Platinum 2017 is only built in the 2017 calendar year, not to be repeated again as a model. Less than 100 of these instruments exist in the world today.

The 2017 Platinum is a super concert instrument that features a stunning combination of woods and an incomparable sound. Every Kanile`a comes with a Canvas Semi-hard Shell case.

Each instrument we build, with the exception of an eight string, may be equipped with a “G” fourth course (196Hz) fixed with a 0.029″ Phosphor Bronze wire-wrapped nylon-core string for no extra charge. The woven “low G-string” is tuned an octave lower, which gives a richer sound and opens a wider picking range.

Note:  These are photos of a previously built `ukulele. Please keep in mind that this is a sample. In the world of wood products the finished instrument may vary from one piece to another and you will not find two pieces the same. These photos give you an idea of what the accessories look like as well as the shape and size. The woods will always vary in grain, curl and color.
