I'd be interested in trading my Soprano Kiwaya KS1 for a Sprucehouse, Newer Martin SO or similar. Will throw in a few $'s if necessary to even out the deal. Let me know what you have. Sorry, no Kala, Ohana, and etc.
My Kiwaya is in excellent condition - no bumps/bruises/scrapes/scratches

"You'll find them proudly declaring 'Ukuleles since 1919', which isn't exactly true. Kiwaya were established then, but they were a gramophone maintenance company. It wasn't until Kitaroh Okamoto (the man now most associated with the company) joined in 1957 that they began producing ukuleles - just in time for ukuleles completely going out of fashion in Japan."
