Found this uke and wondering if it's real or fake. The seller says he has had it for 35 years. Does this look legit or?

If somebody was going to counterfeit Kamakas I wouldn't think they'd choose the ones made under license in Japan. They were decent ukes from what I've heard, but not as valuable as a "real" Kamaka...

It is a Kamaka Keiki made in the 60's....Kamaka sub contracted them to be made in Japan at that time...Keiki means children in hawaiian...hence it is sopranino size...
