1. Kamaka soprano: Not sure the date on it but it looks like it's from the 70's. I'm the 2nd owner and it is in amazing condition as you can see from the photos. It has a light color koa top and darker back and sides. No dings, cracks or chips. I took a close-up of the fretboard to show how there is not even any wear showing. I'm not sure what the fretboard material is, but it does not look like rosewood...maybe it's koa? This one has a really slim neck and plays fantastic. Great intonation and action all the way up the fretboard. No buzzing. Sounds great with fluorocarbons. Very light weight. Comes with a heavy and well padded Pro Tec case. I hate playing salesman, but it honestly looks like it has barely been played. $400 shipped.

2. Kiwaya KTS-6K: SOLD

Ps. Can someone teach me how to post pics directly in the post and not as an attachment. Thanks!

To put pics right in the ad, you need to load them to a picture hosting site (like tinypic for example) and then get the url for the pic and wrap and around the url.

That is a nice vintage Kamaka you have. It really does look perfect. I can't believe it hasn't sold already. $400 is a great price for that, plus a case, shipped!
