The Kanile'a Islander concert ukulele is made in China. It's from the intermediate level
Kanile'a ukulele range. Made to the same exacting standards as the expensive Hawaiian koa models, these Islanders have a unique charm all of their own. All solid mahogany ensures that you get a very full, rounded sound which stands up against concert ukes that are much more expensive!
One of the most attractive things about this model is the slightly wider than normal fretboard, which at 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 instrument.
Pictures show a typical example, not the actual instrument.

Note: The Islanders are a fantastic choice at this particular price point but they do suffer from cosmetic flaws and small finish defects like other Chinese made production instruments. We do our best to capture major issues but you may find some small imperfections on close inspection that cannot be avoided.
