When Kamaka did a Jake Signature model it was about $5,000 IIRC. It had a solid headstock instead of a slothead though.

I heard from a dealer who was at NAMM that were rumors they will be doing another one soon.

I'd guess way more than it is worth... (Just like most signature models from guitar companies.)

Sorry to sound so negative in the other post. I think there are probably a handful of really rich people who can and would like to own those types of instruments.. They probably aren't working on a musician's on a musician's income though.

I think somebody like Aldrine could buy it. I mean, if your pathetic and still learning like myself, you wouldn't buy a 5k ukulele.

Kamaka make similar ukes, they are 5.5k.. I emailed them a while back :)

Even if I had the cash I wouldnt drop that much on a uke.

Haha rather spend it on a Martin 1928 than on the signature Ukulele, where just the name makes 50% of the price

haha for $5k i would buy all the equipment i needed, build my own uke the way i want it, and build more and sell them to pay of the cost of the equipment. then keep building... save up another $5k and buy that uke. hahaha

I think he's waiting till he has the time and the money. If I had 5k for his uke, I probably would've done it already. I would do the same thing Nuke was talking about.

lol, maybe even 60%

I would buy it. MOney means nothing to me really, you either have it or you don't. Simple.
