This is a really cool new model from Islander (the import line of the brilliant Kanile’a Ukuleles.) Kanile’a have been making super tenors for some time. The super tenor body has a very wide lower bout which helps give more depth and bass quality to the instrument. It keeps the 17 inch tenors scale and GCEA tuning so it plays with the same string tension and pitch as a normal tenor ukulele.
This is a laminate instrument, rather than solid wood, but not only does it look beautiful – the wide lower bout means it sounds better than many solid wood tenor ukes.
