Hi everyone I am selling my Kamaka pineapple uke. When I purchased this I was told it was a gold label Kamaka, (although there was no label on it at the time.) The top was cracked and had been shoddily repaired. This ukulele was totally refurbished by Kamaka in Hawaii including a new top. It looks and sounds great. No case included. I am selling to finance a custom ukulele. I am asking only for what I have put into it ($600.00) plus the cost of shipping.

Nice one! Did Kamaka install a compensated saddle?

I am not even sure what a compensated saddle is.

it looks like it has from the images. it will wiggle along its length to allow all the strings to have slightly different scale lengths.

You're are correct. A close look at it shows that.

Is it a bad thing to have?

Of course not !
Just better for intonation.
(every uke should have...)

Thanks, I looked at my Kamaka concert and it doesn't have this, but intonation on both ukes is very good.

Very few if any ukuleles and guitars have them out of the factory. You have to have it added later. Yes they are a good thing.
