I have a 2003 Kamaka HF-1 with pickup that I rarely play, since I don't have much need to play amplified.

As some of you know, what I *really* want is a Kamaka HP-1 pineapple.

So - just thought I'd put this out there - if anybody has a recent HP-1 pineapple (no vintage, no white label, no gold label, minimum of 14 frets) that they would like to trade (will consider kicking in some cash too depending on condition and age, etc) - please raise your hand!

If there is any interest in this whatsoever, I'll post pics, sound samples, etc.

Mahalo for your consideration!

McCabes had two Soprano Pineapples on Sunday, pricey though, good luck.

Thanks stuben. I'm thinking I may put my HF-1 up for sale to finance one of those two...

Huh, I just learned something - that the older HP-1s only had 12 frets, not 14 (like my HF-1) or 16 (as they do now). I guess I need to rephrase my original post!

I just can't live without (at least) a 13th fret :)

So I've been thinking this over - maybe the way to go is to just put the 2003 HF-1 up for sale and roll that over into the purchase of a new HP-1... Any interest? Maybe $475 shipped CONUS??

Sorry about that, I've posted several "checking interest" threads before without ever being told it was a problem to not post pics and so forth.

If nobody is interested, then I don't want to take the time to do photographs etc. - please feel free to close this thread if it's a problem.

It appeared from your last post that you were now listing it for sale. No need to close the thread but if you are offering an item for sale then the rules are required and if the item becomes up for sale then you would need the photos in that case.

That's what I thought, thanks! If anybody expresses interest I'll post a new thread with pics and all that :)
