Description

This is an absolutely stunning used custom Kanile’a tenor made from a torrefied spruce top and Myrtle back and sides. For those that don’t know torrefication is where a wood is baked to simulate the ageing process and gives the wood similar properties to a the wood in vintage instruments. You can really feel the vibrancy of the wood in this case – it really doesn’t sing. Myrtle has been used by makers like Mya Moe and Beansprout for sometime and has a nice warmth to it, similar to mango to my ears.
It really produces a vibrant open sounding instrument with a lean towards brightness. The Myrtle is really gorgeous too with a lovely grain pattern.
We have Kanile’as nice 1.5 inch nut, an Ebony fretboard, bridge, rosette and faceplate. The gloss makes the high grade woods really shine, whilst the satin mahogany neck is beautifully smooth for comfortable playing.
The condition is very good with just a couple of tiny dents in the finish in the upper bout from strumming.
Comes with a deluxe Kanile’a case.
