Kanile'a K-1 C Natural Concert Ukulele Hawaiian Koa "Black Forest" Satin Finish
As you can see by the photos, this is a stunning Kanile'a K-1 Concert Natural Ukulele. The dark richness of the straight grain Koa wood mixed in with the "curl" or "flame" helps this concert ukulele shine.
The all solid Koa wood Kanile'a Natural ukulele has UV cured top, sides, and back which gives is a beautiful satin finish (non-gloss).
The wood used to make the Natural line of ukuleles has to be nicer pieces of wood since minor imperfections can be hidden with a ukulele that has a high gloss finish.
Many ukulele and guitar builders believe the satin finish helps wood of the instrument breath better and creates a warm and beautiful tone.
Aa you can see from the photos this gorgeous instrument will not dissppoint as it has a stunning grain pattern.
The standard grade Koa wood, which Kanile'a calls "Select" has the straightest grain that you can find in Koa wood. The bold and straight wood grain gives a look of power and appeal that will make anyone do a double take when they see you playing this beautiful instrument.
Due to the "curl" or "flame" you see in the wood on both the top and the back, this ukulele very easily could have made it to the "Deluxe" grade category.
This is what you want your Hawaiian Koa wood to look like. You will love the look, feel and sound of this instrument.
The K-1 model is the foundation of every Kanile`a ukulele built. It appeals to the player looking for a simple, elegant instrument that boasts a delightful sound. Resonance, sustain and intonation are the key to making this the most popular Kanile`a we sell.
