Oh, mercy! Looks nice, but I don't think my pockets have ever been that deep. That's half what my house cost me.

Even if I had deep pockets, my arms would never be that long.

I have a Gaspar pineapple, plain jane version, no one who knows all about the Kamaka history I submitted photos etc too gave a crap about it, not enough to even answer me back. I got one out of the blue unsolicited email probably off a post here saying it was rare-ish, but no other info. Gaspar was primarily a violin maker, maybe some guitars? But not a huge producer of ukes. A lot of his pineapples seem to be very free form and lopsided.

Unless this is the only one Louis ever made that was fancy, I think this guy is dreaming.

Dreaming happens a lot when someone who knows he's got something uncommon - but doesn't know enough - sells via ebay. There's a gold plated Ludwig banjo uke with crowns up now with a Buy It Now of $10K. Nice, but not worth half that...

Love the description...no damage except writing on the inside. Must have missed the two fat cracks on the back, but it is 90 years old.

This uke, like most other things in life, is worthed only what people are willing to pay for it.
Let's see what happens at the end of the auction..............:o

Heh, okay, this is just my opinion, but just the minimum bid of $1900 is way more than I'd pay for it...
