I second Stan. Kamaka will treat it with the utmost respect, and be somewhat reasonable if I remember correctly.

Collectors value is also a function of appointments. Is there any binding? Pineapple decal? That said, I'd treat it with the utmost-est respect and love were your friend to send it to me.

Paraphrased from the movie Gladiator: "There was once a dream called...Kamaka" (spoken in hushed awe)

If I had one, I certainly wouldn't hesitate to send it to Kamaka for refurbishing. I've heard they perform miracles on old Kamakas on a regular basis! :)

Definitely send it to the factory. They do great work for a reasonable price, and if anyone knows that instrument inside and out, it's them.
