I have a similar one that I may put up for sale in the next few months. I can state that this is a fair price for a wonderful instrument. Others have chimed in that the satin finish may have a better sound than the gloss. At the KoAloha factory tour, they said that it is actually more involved for them to do this finish as they are unable to buff out imperfections like on a gloss finish so had to prep the room to be dust free and be much more careful when applying this finish.

GLWS! Whoever gets it should be very happy.

Thank you for your response and insight into the factory making of the pikake ukulele. It has that KoAloha sound, deep, loud and very rich in tone.
