On a recent visit to Maui, I saw a fantastic Super Concert Pinapple Sundae, the UAS really tried to kick in, but the price tag took care of that. So after that my wife asked me why the other "Pineapple" Ukulele's are called that, she said they looked more like Canned Hams.... I couldn't answer that one, any one want to help me out with that one????:anyone::shaka:

The original pineapples made by Kamaka had the front painted like a pineapple.

My understanding is that pineapple shaped ukuleles prior to KoAloha's Pineapple Sunday were refereed to as pineapple ukuleles due to their uncanny resemblance to pineapples.

The fret board would be the uhh... green part. And the body, the fruit part.

I would imagine that after KoAloha's marketing of the Pineapple Sunday, the image or definition of a pineapple ukulele was redefined. That would be what I would think anyways.

I didn't get to read all of the other posts however.

For those not familiar with the history of the Pineapple Uke, an excerpt from the Kamaka site;

. . .In the mid-20s, Sam Kamaka laid out a pattern for a new oval-shaped ukulele body. His friends remarked that it looked like a pineapple, so one of Sam's artist friends painted the front to duplicate the tropical fruit. A few years later in 1928, Sam Kamaka patented the design. Thus began the original Pineapple Ukulele, which produced a resonant, mellow sound distinct from the traditional figure-eight. The Pineapple Ukulele became an instant success worldwide, and continues to be Kamaka's signature ukulele to this day. As far as popularity goes, I think it has to do with what people see. When the ukulele started its reemergence, performers/artists like Eddie Kamae, Moe Keale, Peter Moon and others were using the traditionally designed instruments during their performances. My 2 centavos.

This was from another thread (http://www.ukuleleunderground.com/forum/showpost.php?p=72395&postcount=6) about Pineapple 'Ukuleles . . .

This is how I like my pork. But not how my dog likes it.

BTW, back on the subject of pineapples, I just ordered a long-neck from KoAloha. I can join the Krowns now!
