Alohowdeedoo ya'll.
Ok its time .. time to get what I know ya'll want.. . Own a piece of ukulele history. These are getting harder to find.

I have a Vintage ALL KOA KAMAKA Concert ukulele, I have owned it for the last 6 (or so) years. I purchased it from an individual in Hawaii when I first started playing. I have used it on many Youtube videos, This is one of the brightest sounding loudest concerts I have ever played. It is light as a feather and in pretty decent shape. And the sound is incredible. I am asking 900.00 + shipping for it (I will consider Reasonable offers). I know that is a premium price, but it is a premium instrument and hard to find. (paypal works or a check is good) Comes with the case it came with (not sure if its the original case)

This is ALL KOA circa late 70's early 80's. Koa Fretboard, neck and body. Original tuners. Weighs about 1 lb 2 oz. its light as a feather and the Koa has aged very nicely....

Issues:
Ihave used this uke a lot. There are a few little dings on the edge of the lower bout Nothing major, just little bumps. ( I have posted some images and tried to show the "dings" the fretboard shows some wear (it is a koa fretboard) as I have played it a lot.. and I play the heck out of them.

There is a little scratch on the headstock on the bottom side. and a couple of buffable mars on the soundboard.

This uke was used in some clubs and this house was and is oft times "the party house" so it has been around smokers.. the uke does not smell nor does the case - at least to me and the three others I had do the "sniff" test.

I hope you get your price because that would give me great hope for getting a great price for my perfect condition 8 string HF-38 li'liu that I purchased from Sam Kamaka in August, 1979. Good luck with the sale.

Butch, that Bosko and Honey video with you is by far and away the youtube ukulele video that I have watched the most. I must have watched it three dozen times. Frankly, I grab a beer, turn the speakers up loud, and play along with it...that's how much I like it.

It's so freaking awesome. Good luck with the sale, and I hope you make more Klassic Hacks from Kharmachanic. I play along with your Marley Jammin' and Climax Blues Band Couldn't Get It Right, too.

P.S. Whatever that chord pattern is that you played at the intro and once again in the middle of the Bosko and Honey video is absolutely haunting. Sounds like a low G, perhaps even a baritone uke... if you remember what tune that is, please do tell.
