I was looking through my local Facebook Marketplace and saw an add for a Kamaka at a good price. I could see from the pictures that it had a gold label. We exchanged IMs and I decided to check it out. Wow! It was like opening a time capsule! It had the original box and packaging, the original receipt (sold for $26 in 1971), an extra set of sealed Kamaka strings, a pitch pipe, and a Mel Bay book. There are no cracks, but the frets are sharp so I'm sure it is a little dry. I wasn't exactly looking for anything, but I couldn't pass it up!

Great find! I'd have pounced that one too, in spite of not wanting to get more ukes. :)
