Man, that is nice looking vintage soprano at a great price.
I had a KoAloha pineapple sop. with the UPT tuners. (FYI, for anyone looking who doesn't know, the UPT tuners are $60 and that doesn't include installation)
The UTP are the best upgrade you can put on a uke for the money, IMHO. The best friction style tuners in existence. Period.
Unfortunately, I found out that I am not a soprano player.

At that price... this thing shouldn't be here long. Do you have a sound sample?

This is a really good deal.

I just wish it was a Super Soprano.

I dont "need" another Kamaka, but I was wondering about the UPT conversion;
Could you notice any weight gain after replacing the original tuners?
