This lovely looking and practical Kanile'a Islander soprano ukulele bridges the gap between vintage specification and the modern players needs. It keeps the instrument at a soprano scale but extends the nut width to the wider and much sought after 38mm. The ukulele sounds great, looks the part and more than holds it own against the other sopranos out there at this price.

Spruce and mahogany are an incredibly popular combination at the moment. Kanile'a have done a fantastic job of meeting demand with an affordable, playable model.
