Rare early 1970ís Kamaka Tenor Ukulele in nice condition. Great player ukulele and constructed of all Koa wood. Beautiful Hawaiian Koa face, back, and sides with gorgeous black vertical striping on soundboard. Tonal quality on this beauty is incredible. Great sustain with nice lows and crisp highs.

The white label era is considered one of the best player instrument generations for Kamaka and is especially prized by musicians worldwide. Also, the dimensions used to make these early model white label ukes seem to vary from what is currently being used at Kamaka which may attribute to the wonderful tone of these white label era pieces.

No fractures. No cracks. Some fretboard wear and nicks and dings but a great player uke overall! The back seem came slightly separated over time and was re-glued by a professional repair technician at Island Guitars here in Honolulu, HI.
