To accommodate a range of contemporary playing styles, and for enhanced comfort across the fretboard, Islander Ukuleles feature a wider than usual fretboard. The 38mm nut width is a request common for people with larger hands, making trickier chord shapes much easier to play, a feature that can benefit both experienced and beginner players finding their way on the instrument. Additionally, wider string spacing at the bridge is ideal for developing good fingerstyle playing, allowing for more relaxed fingerpicking and melody playing.
A remarkable achievement by a high end brand, Kanile'a have given their magic touch to the Islander range, retaining many of their signature design features to create a highly desirable ukulele. For beginners and next level players looking for a stunning exotic wood ukulele with a hint of Hawaii, the Kanile'a Islander SMS-4 Spruce Top Soprano Ukulele comes highly recommended!
