This beautiful new ukulele features figured Hawaiian koa and an arm bevel for extra comfort when playing. The slothead is the classic squared-off look but with the slim profile for a lighter weight. This also has the new TruR bracing for a lighter weight, and more resonant super concert you will love!
This new model also features a gloss finish body and a smooth "silk" satin finish neck. This gives you the best in look and feel.

Super concert has the body of a concert with the longer scale length of the tenor size. This gives you much of the feel of tenor with the classic punch of the concert body sound. The KSR series features an elegant slim slothead, and 18:1 geared Gotoh Stealth tuners. This adds to a lightweight, beautiful design, accurate tuning, and an exquisite look.
100% Hawaiian-made by the Kanile'a master builders here, on the island of Oahu, using the finest Koa wood. This particular ukulele is truly beautiful in every way! But even more importantly, it sounds great and feels wonderful!

This Ukulele comes with the Kanile'a custom gig-case. Much more rugged than the average gigbag, this heavy-duty "gig-case" comes with more padding and reinforcement panels built-in for extra protection and support. Heavy-duty zippers, backpack straps, two front storage compartments, as well as padded neck support with a velcro strap to secure the neck during travel. The exterior has a multi-layered construction to provide a durable barrier between the instrument and any kind of moisture. Another option is to add a ukulele humidifier. This is required if you live in a low humidity area or if you use indoor heating/cooling, especially for areas with winter seasons or hot summers. If you are heating the air in your house, the air will become extremely dry. Regardless of the outside humidity levels, the indoor humidity levels will drop dramatically once the air is heated. The same is true for air conditioning, usually not as drastic of a humidity drop as a heater, but it will remove a significant amount of moisture from the air as well. In either case it is always a good idea to supplement with a humidifier that you store in the case with the instrument while not in use. This is usually a requirement by Ukulele manufacturers in order to keep the instrument covered under warranty. In order to humidify the instrument you will need a case for the humidifier to work properly and you will need to maintain the humidifier by refilling it as needed. Another option is to switch from high G tuning to low G tuning or vice-versa. There is a special instructions box where you can add notes or preferences that our setup or shipping department needs to be aware of. After adding this instrument to your shopping cart, you can add extra accessories from the website or from this page. Add the installation of strap button(s) if you like to use a strap.

Current Turnaround Time: Amount of time before shipping-
Full Setup: 7-9 Days
Full Setup RUSH: 2-4 days
Basic QC Only: 2-4 days
Basic Quality Control - $0.00 (Always Free)
BASIC QUALITY CONTROL covers inspecting the instrument for any major defects that would have been missed by the factory and any faults in construction that could potentially damage or limit the functionality of the instrument over time. Any defective instruments are rejected and replaced. We make sure that each Ukulele meets the basic standard for a brand new instrument and will be ready to play once you receive it. A final cleanup is also included after inspection before packing and shipment.
Full Setup - $40.00 for Ukuleles Under $399 / Free for Ukuleles $399+
-Overall QC evaluation: To find defects in construction as well as to get an overall view of the instrument and note the areas that need extra attention and adjustment during the setup.
-Saddle Adjustment: The height of the saddle is lowered to reduce the distance between the strings and the fretboard, making it easier to play than the factory setup, especially higher up the fretboard.
-Nut Slot Adjustment: The depth, width, and angle of the nut slots are adjusted to create a more comfortable playing experience especially on the lower frets.
-Fret Dressing: After adjusting the nut and saddle heights, high spots in the fretboard or uneven frets will potentially cause fret buzz, dead spots, or other unwanted problems. The frets are filed to create a more consistent level across the fretboard. We then crown the frets to return their rounded curvature back to the top of each fret creating a clear contact point for each string. We then smooth and polish the frets and condition the fingerboard to bring them back to new condition.
-Final Cleanup: We always do a final overall cleanup of the instrument to make sure it is in new condition and ready to play before it is prepared for shipment.
Rush Setup & Delivery - Additional $50.00
