    Default Kamaka reveals its centennial headstock

    Kamaka revealed its centennial headstock at NAMM today and posted this photo on its Facebook page with the caption: "Kamaka Ukulele 100th Anniversary headstock on all stock models now available through our authorized dealers."



    Is anyone planning to buy a stock Kamaka ukulele this year for the centennial headstock?

    It's really elegant! If a stock HP-1L with the centennial headstock showed up at my local shop, I'd have a tough time *not* snapping it up. I just might have to put in a request with their buyer...

    It's very nice, very classy. I was afraid the double k would be gone, but there it is! I also like those tuner buttons, BTW. The usual ones are pearly white.

    But I'm not in the market for any ukes. I love my 2014 pineapple, and don't plan on buying any more instruments any time soon.

    It really pops on a black headstock. Here is a photo from my sprint around the NAMM floor this morning:

    More an appreciator of the ukulele than a true player. My motto is: "Don't matter how good it ring if it ain't got some bling."
