I'm looking for a great-sounding Kamaka Tiki head concert in good condition. If you have one that you would consider letting go, please drop me a line!

Hi mm Stan. That's a bit more than I'm hoping to spend, but Thanks for asking!

There's a 1973 White Label Kamaka Tiki Concert listed on Ebay right now.

Thanks- I'm watching it excitedly! I've communicated with the seller, and the repairs are pretty extensive (but I'm prepared to bid anyway)!
If I win it, and someone asks how I came to hear about it, I can say a littlebird told me.

The ebay Kamaka tiki has gotten too rich for my blood (especially considering the amount of work that has been done on it).
Good luck to anyone here who might be bidding!

So.........did you buy it anyhow?

02-26-2012, 06:14 PM
Nope! That uke had pretty extensive work done on it, and I feel the price was too high, all things considered. I sold my Kamaka tiki a couple years ago, for $675 (or something like that), and it was in great, original shape. I have a hard time taking that much of a hit, so I'll just keep watching until one comes along at a reasonable price.

Or I may just go for a regular old white label Kamaka concert, sans tiki.

02-26-2012, 07:24 PM
yeah, make your own tiki and glue it on.

02-26-2012, 07:33 PM
The thought HAS occurred to me!

I've started my first ukulele build and will have a tiki in the headstock...here's one I carved out of ebony.

That looks great! Nice work!

Did you see this one:

I sure did, thanks. I think it's way too high though, personally. Mostly I've seen these sell in the area of $600-$700. Then one sells for a freakishly high price (simewhere around the starting price for this one), and now everyone who has one to sell wants double their former value. Well, more power to them. It's everyone's right to get whatever a customer will pay but I'll never own one at that price. Incidentally- I had one of these, but regrettably sold it in the throes of UAS years ago (for around $650 if I recall).
Thanks for the heads-up on the auction! I'm hoping it will end with no buyers, and the seller will reassess the uke's value!

How much are you willing to spend? I have 2 a white label and a Gold label, both in excellent contion.

Hi Waipahu- thanks for the reply. I've recently sunk a bunch of money into a Maui Music concert, which had two undisclosed back cracks, and a bunch of loose frets (also undisclosed). It's going to cost me a small fortune by the time it's fixed up, so I'm pretty flat at the moment. I was hoping to purchase a white label Tiki concert for $750 or under, but at the moment I couldn't manage it.
