Aloha UU,

Here is another beautiful instrument for someone else to enjoy as I reduce my collection to 3-4 ukuleles.

This is a semi-custom Kamaka Pineapple Longneck ordered directly from the factory and delivered in May 2013. In addition to the beautiful striped Koa it features:

Gotoh UPT Tuners
Ebony faceplate, fret board, and bridge
Abalone KK logo and fret board markers
New Kamaka hard case


Price is $925 and includes shipping to CONUS. Paypal preferred.

Here's a link to a short sound sample!

It's time for you to pull the trigger Phil! With all the options, this ukulele cost $1,200 so it's a great deal. Plus it sounds like pure Hawaii...

Ack, this is killing me - the only ukes I'd even consider adding to my collection are a longneck Kamaka pineapple, or an Ohta-San. I am going to have to give this some really serious thought. Somebody please buy this so I don't have to agonize over it!

Beautiful grain pattern. Please educate me: Which feature(s) make this a 'semi-custom'?

•Gotoh UPT Tuners
•Ebony faceplate, fret board, and bridge
•Abalone KK logo and fret board markers

Gotohs are the "+" as Kamaka is making it more available but not the standard tuners.

Thanks Daniel for clarifying the semi-custom options.

The standard features are Gotoh friction tuners, Koa head plate, Rosewood fretboard and bridge, and pearl KK logo and fret board markers.

The longneck is also an upcharge from standard Pineapple Soprano.

Hope that helps pahu,

Don

Thanks all. I'm going to keep this one for now. Everyone should have at least one pineapple ukulele.
