Pics show the exact Kamaka for sale here (if it says "In Stock").
Since 1916, that's right, for over an entire century now Kamaka ukulele has not only stayed in business, but have kept it a family run business. There have been advancements with each generation, but all the while they have given the world wonderful instruments made 100% here on the island with excellent, instrument grade Hawaiian Koa. This last batch sounds awesome!
Take a listen this same model.
NOTE: This instrument has a small cosmetic blemish you can see at the last picture. It's really nothing but it looks like someone drilled the fretboard dot on the wrong side of the fretboard and then filled it in. This is not a 2nd but was caught by our setup department so we are offering at a discount.
The guitar has a waist to sit in your lap, but with the pineapple shape you are not gonna miss out on anything you get from the waist on a standard ukulele. What you get is a little more soundboard to open the vibration of the top in essentially the same size instrument.
This model has has been the choice for many because it simply has wonderful tone. little more punch and brightness. This instrument is as wonderful as you can fit into a soprano case. 14 fret to the body concert scale and soprano pineapple body makes for a sensational Kamaka Ukulele!
The New Finish is Awesome! This new semi-gloss lacquer finish feels so smooth and has a beautiful sheen showing off the woods rich coloring. The look is very clean and classy.
These gorgeous instruments are made right in Hawaii with a consistency of excellence. The sound and design of the Kamaka Pineapple is what really put Kamaka a notch above the competition just as ukulele started to be built on the islands. In 1928 Samuel Kamaka patented the Pineapple shaped ukulele. Sometime in the 1940′s the patent ran out but they were the only company out of 20 ukulele manufacturers to survive the 1930′s economy. A few years ago they started making this Pineapple longneck. With this tone it's already become a popular model.
When you buy a Hawaiian Made instrument from Hawaii Music Supply it always comes with a very nice hard shell case and free shipping.
