Made in China, this is an intermediate level
Kanile'a concert ukulele. Made to the same exacting standards as the expensive Hawaiian koa models, these Kanile'a Islanders have a unique charm all of their own. The very good acacia laminate makes for a really strong and sweet sound for the price, and features shared with the big daddy Kanile'a ukes such as the bridge pins give it a real touch of class.
One of the most attractive things about the Kanile'a Islander concert ukulele is the slightly wider than normal fretboard. 1.5 inches or 38mm at the nut makes getting your fingers into the right shapes an absolute doddle. Combine that width with a very slinky neck profile and you have a very easy to play
