I'm a former long-time Hawaii resident, now living in the Pacific Northwest, Washington State. Played Uke as a young kid, but have not played in 40+ years. I love Hawaiian music, and would love to start playing again. Want to pick up a good quality ukulele; something I could pass down to my kids. I'm would love a Kamaka, but out of my budget, also looking at a Pono Concert, and seriously looking at the Martin C1K. I can get one locally for about $470.
Any thoughts on the models I'm looking at? Suggestions??

Mahalo's!!!

These are the kinds of events where you meet people who may have for sale, exactly what you want.....let people know you are shopping. You should easily get a solid mahogany Pono concert around mid-$200's if you are patient. Go up from there. Lots of great KoAloha concerts at decent prices too. Good luck
