Behold, the long-awaited Jake signature model from the legendary uke company, Kamaka. A glorious tenor ukulele with some of the finest Hawaiian koa and a perfect gloss finish to show it off. It's bound in ebony with abalone shell and blue outlined purflings. The headstock is slotted of course (Jake model) and the Kamaka logo is in abalone and framed off with purfling. At the 12th fret you have a mother of pearl inlay of Jake's signature. What else is there to say. It's super nice and you'll sound just like Jake. (If you play like Jake). Either way, it's seriously inspiring to have such a great instrument. 

Kalei, Corey and Tobias give a sound sample of this exact ukulele. 

For an entire century now Kamaka ukulele has not only stayed in business, but they've kept it a family run business.

This is the top of the line. The flagship. Premium premium. Get one if you can. (This one is exceptional!)

This model has the Gilbert tuners with the shell inly and snakewood button, velvet smooth.

Setup Options

Most people shop with us because of the extensive quality control and final setup work we provide at no extra cost on all ukuleles we ship out. However this is time consuming work and creates a delay in shipping. We are now offering an "Expedited Setup" for those wanting to receive their instrument faster. See details on the Full Setup and Expedited Setup options along with current turnaround times for each at the link- HERE.

Extra Options

One of the options for this ukulele is to trade out the Herco, included humidifier, for the more expensive Oasis Ukulele Humidifier (OH-18 or OH-5+). This is suggested if you live in a low humidity area (parts of California, Nevada, Arizona, etc.) or also areas with winter seasons, especially if you are heating the air most of the day and night. For more info see our Ukulele Care page. 

This comes from the factory with a high G but can be ordered with a low G. Tell us in the Special Instructions box if you would like this and any other our setup or shipping instructions.
