For sale my Kamaka HF3 sn# 121576 purchased new from Hawaii Music Supply 8/3/12 for $1395

It has a Misi Trio pickup installed by HMS and I have added a strap button. I consider it to be in like new condition . Not a mark on it. It has Aquilla Low G string set.

Reason for selling: Retirement is rushing up on me in the next couple of years and I will have to move into a smaller place. I have too many banjos, guitars, ukuleles, mandolins, hammered dulcimers.
I know saying you have too many ukuleles is like saying a cake has too much frosting. No such thing. But space will dictate that I keep only one of each.

The Kamaka is an excellent instrument with the traditional Kamaka sound. I have realized that I am looking for a different sound. I had posted earlier about trading it but never really saw anything that I had to have.

My price is $900 plus shipping and insurance. Paypal please. The only shipping options available in my town is UPS or USPS.

I live in Mississippi, United States

I think I have attached some pictures, but not sure. I have make a video sound file , it is too large to attach. I will put it in my dropbox if I can figure out how. Forgive the finger picks. My fingers were crushed as a teen and my finger nails are thin shells.

Yeah, even though its a very desireable uke, your playing should help it sell even quicker. Looks like a good deal for someone wanting a Kamaka tenor.

I already got mine. Someone should buy this one.

Feel free to comment on my different way of finger picking. I am using a Bluechip thumbpick and Fred Kelly Freedom finger picks. They allow me to pick in both directions. As I mentioned. All my fingers were shattered in an accident as a teen so I have to compensate . I certainly think those using finger nails sound much better than picks, but I am thankful that I still have fingers to pick with.

Nice playing and beautiful HF-3.

Those Fred Kelly Freedom finger picks are about the only picks I know of that feel close to real nails.

Good luck on the sale.

These photos show the Koa wood as being nearly blond. I have 3 Kamaka ukes that all have a lot more red in the coloration. Are your photos pretty accurate?

I used my iphone to photo. It is not blond. Must be the light. It is the koa color I see on all the Kamaka HF 3. Pretty standard as best I can tell.

Bump: would $900 including shipping and insurance within US make this more attractive? Let me know.

woo hoo! Another pocketbook reprieve! Thank you Sandra for taking the pressure off of us. I've been looking at this for a while but the old bank account said no.
