I have a nice Kamaka Soprano to sell. I bought it many years ago out of a pawn shop window. It was obviously new and unplayed. I never played it. It was stored in a closet for fifteen years or so, and has been on display in my living room for the last fourteen years. It still has its original Kamaka strings on it! No scratches, dings, or cracks. I do see that the seam between the bridge and the bottom of the lower bout has opened up a bit where the glue has dried out. But that's its only fault. I'll take $350.00 for it if the buyer will pay the actual shipping charges. It comes with its original Kamaka chipboard case which is in good condition. Here are a couple of pictures of it for your perusal.

If I didn't already have a Kamaka pineapple, I'd be all over this like a rash.
You may as well start packing this into a shipping box now 'cuz this is going to make someone's evening.

Yep, if the ones that said they will take it don't follow thru I will stand next in line.

Happy Strumming

I have the Kamaka tenor and baritone previously owned by George and I'm loving them. :nana: I am content for the moment, so you guys can have a chance at this one. :)

ahhhhh, mine!

Unless you want it very mellow sounding, put some Oasis lights on it. That was the advice I got from more than once source when I got mine not long ago.

OK, so the little darnlin' is on its way to its new home! Thanks Mike! I know you're going to love it. Sorry, Uke man, maybe next time? Hey, I wonder exactly how many brand new (never been played) 30+ year old Kamaka's there are out there? I had to laugh again when I noticed its little case also looks brand new. I'll bet that case hasn't been opened and closed ten times. That's amazing!

I buy strings from whoever has the best deal including shipping. The Oasis strings are long enough for two sets and can be had for an average price of around $10. I can't remember where I got them from.
