Introducing the KANILEA 2020 Platinum Super Tenor!  Like all of the annual Platunim ukuleles from Kanile'a this instrument is a showcase of beautiful timbers and amazing craftsmanship and design!

For 2020, Kanile'a have chosen to celebrate the generations of the family Souza who make up the Kanile'a family company.  Designed by Joe Souza, master luthier along with his three sons,Kaimana, Iokepa and Kahiau.  This instrument showcases new features that have never been done by Kanile'a before such as a tail strip and the D hole sound hole which produces an entirely new tone for a Kanile'a!

Since before Kanile’a was founded, Joe was innovating and creating new and sometimes outrageous designs. His first ‘ukulele was a Concert body with a Tenor neck, now known as a Super-Concert or Long-Neck Concert. Other designs that were pushing the boundaries have made an impact in the ‘ukulele world, like the Guitarlele, Super-Tenor, and the 19″ Tenor scale length.

Having grown up as an `ukulele player Joe understood what might work, and what wouldn’t, from a player’s perspective. It took years to perfect the craft of playing as well as building.  His training as a luthier began with the late, “Uncle” Peter Bermudez in 1991. Now his 3 sons, Kaimana, Iokepa, and Kahiau are actively learning and absorbing the knowledge that has been passed down through many generations.

Blending new age abilities and paying homage to the education from previous generations, Kanile’a is proud to present the KANILEA 2020 Platinum Super Tenor Limited Edition.

For Every `Ukulele Built, 1 Koa Tree Is Planted.
