‘Introduced in 2015, the Kanile’a Platinum series showcases master luthier Joe Souza’s continuing development of ukulele design features that take sound, intonation, resonance, and aesthetics to a whole new level. “Joe is a brilliant builder with so many incredible ideas,” says Lina Langi of Kanile’a `Ukulele. “He is always looking into new ways to showcase features that would appeal to different players without touching our tried-and-true models. The best way to do that was to create an entire series based on these innovative ideas.”
"The 2017 Platinum Limited Edition is a Super Concert instrument that features a stunning combination of woods, features, and a new unique bracing system. The result is a Kanile'a unlike any we have seen or heard. Wonderful rich tone and sustain along with a stunning beauty."

For the first time we experience a Kanile'a with a torrefied spruce top, this is coupled with Claro Walnut. This wood for sides and back is known for its balance and response. Breedlove described it this way. "Warm and earthy with the overtone depth of rosewood and the the clarity of mahogany. It works together with this special spruce perfectly.”
The new bracing from Kanile'a is being introduced on this model and the basic idea is to offer stronger structural support with less weight. You can get a glimpse of the design of the transverse braces in the pictures and video. It just shows the continued growth and development of Kanile'a.
This beautiful Ukulele presents in near new condition, with only some very small nicks in the top, barely visible to the naked eye. This uke comes equipped with an LR Baggs pickup which sounds the goods, complementing this beauty's acoustic resonance wonderfully.
This Super Concert has a concert size body and fits into a concert case, but it has a tenor scale length neck. This gives the roominess of a tenor neck and adds clarity and sustain to the sound.
Comes in its Kanile’a original hardshell case.
