hi everyone <SOLD>

I'm selling my lovely Kamaka white label. Early 1970's.

It's in immaculate condition. No marks anywhere, just a couple of tiny nics on the right lower bout which are hard to show in picture

solid koa, 12 frets, aquila strings. all original condition, no repairs , cracks etc.

Plays like a dream. Loud and sweet tone, low action and perfect intonation, gorgeous uke that has been very well cared for. will ship in it's original case.

and some more. the first one is of the right lower bout where I've tried to show the small nics. they are very tint however and a little hard to distinguish.

It has been a loved uke and sad to sell. Someone will have a very nice playing uke here. Thanks again for looking. :)

Oops, sorry everyone. A learned fellow member has corrected me and identified this uke as being built between 1980 and 1982. Apparently this was when Kamaka started using the screw tuners. Thanks Stan. :o

Guess that may also partly explain why it is in such amazing condition. I am only the 2nd owner and the original owner certainly took great care of it.

Wish I would have known you would be selling this one John since I was in the market but I already emptied my pocket book on not one but two kamakas'. Good luck, it is a lovely one.

That's a beautiful ukulele, John. I'm not a soprano player, but if I were I'd be tempted. Good luck!

sorry Toaster. Your uke sounds lovely but I'm afraid I sold the Kamaka earlier this morning.
