A custom instrument is often the dream of any `ukulele player, and now Kanile`a `Ukulele has made it possible for anyone to design their own Kanile`a tenor `ukulele with a few simple clicks at the “Design Your Own” feature on its website.

At Kanileʻa ʻUkulele, there are various models with different features that people can choose from. The choices vary from size to wood choices and wood grades, to the type of finish. When building ʻukulele, the team at Kanile`a `Ukulele know they’re not just building an uke, but creating something impactful that will become part of the family, something that will be a part of countless celebrations and eventually passed down generation to generation.

Choose from top-of-the-line tonal woods like curly koa, torrefied spruce, sequoia redwood, western red cedar, mango, claro walnut, and more. Then pick the perfect head stock, string count, rosette, binding, and inlay materials like Kailua Beach white sand, pāua abalone, white Mother-of-Pearl and other features to make the instrument one-of-a-kind.

People want something that is uniquely their own, and Kanile`a `Ukulele makes it happen. With a team of custom designers, any client can make their dream Kanileʻa a reality. If you have a special design or your business logo that you would like to put on an ʻukulele, the team at Kanile`a `Ukulele can make that happen as well using its state-of-the-art laser and various inlay materials.
