Here is a very special 5 string Super Concert K-3 from Joe and Kristen at Kanile'a. They continue to produce some of the highest quality, great sounding ukulele that are coming out of Hawaii. We are very fortunate to have a great relationship with Kanile'a, and that's how we get rare and custom models such as this. This ukulele is built out of Hawaiian Koa. The bridge and fingerboard are in ebony. The binding is in tortoise, and there is a thick maple rosette. Gold Grover tuners, and a UV finish round out this well appointed ukulele. This super concert has a great tone. The high and low G really fill out the tone. Mahalo.
