Preowned. 2020. Custom ukuleles by Pahu Kani Ukulele. A beautiful new Custom Pahu Kani Pineapple Tenor Ukulele handcrafted on the Waianae coastline by one of Oahu’s finest luthiers in custom ukuleles, Manny Halican of the Ukulele Guild of Hawaii (UGH).

This unique pineapple tenor ukulele was handcrafted with meticulous care and exemplifies the beautiful pairing of a classic figure eight soundboard design with a dual waist port system and pineapple back design. The pineapple design allows for a larger soundbox, increasing the overall cubic space within the instrument and making for a nice open and mellow sound. Hawaiian Koa wood face, back, and sides with gorgeous center spalted bookmatch on the soundboard and matching spalted back with blue wedge resin on the back, attesting to the skills and creativity of Manny’s unique and functional design. Master grade two-piece curly maple wood neck stained a light brown to compliment the colors of the Hawaiian Koa wood with bocote wood center stringer and ebony wood inlay design. Gabon Ebony wood fretboard and bridge and a ‘Pineapple’ inlaid of red and green resin in keeping with the theme of the instrument. Red-white top, side, and back accent lines with a matching red wood purfling lines on the back of the neck. Dual exaggerated side sound ports on both sides of the waist of the instrument allowing for maximum excitement on the sound board with no traditional top porting. This enables the player to receive the full benefit of hearing all that this instrument offers tonally with the sound firing entirely upwards towards the player for a monitor-like experience. Slotted headstock with professional geared Rubner tuners. ‘PK’ logo inlay on the headstock and an extended 18 inch scale from the zero fret to the saddle of the instrument. Mirror like high gloss finish.
