    I personally am getting a pineapple or a soprano. Not sure which yet, but I am leaning towards the Pineapple.
    Not the blinged out one, just a standard one.

    That's the one for me! I already have a HF-1L figure-8 and LOVE it; I need a pineapple to complete the set

    I think the standard HP-1L would suit me just fine. I think I'll start putting some pennies aside every chance I get.

    2016 prices are announced. +$100 vs. previous year in average.

    The only model I'm tempted by is the one with the black slotted headstock (D2I), either concert or tenor size. But at a price of 3K or more, this will be way out of reach. So I'll just be happy with my plain ol' pineapple that is 3 years short of 100.

    Sonsinn, where did you see the prices for 2016? Looks like Kamaka homepage hasn't been updated in a while...
