I have a perfect condition Kamaka Pineapple Soprano purchased new in 2003-4 that I'd be willing to consider a trade. Stamped 2002. Barely played. Payed just under six hundred from McCabes here in Los Angeles. Gloss finish beautiful Koa. I know its only a soprano but it has geared tuners with pearl buttons. I think they are Mini Gotohs. I had them installed by the Kamaka factory while on vacation there. I didn't dig the locking friction tuners. She's a beauty.
