    Default Hi I am new. My Ukulele is a Kamaka 1969 Short Tiki Gold label

    Hi, I was given a this Ukulele and it is in excellent condition. Just curious if anyone knows how many were made. Mine is shown on the Kamaka site. I am hoping to get more of the story about why the short verses long tiki too

    Welcome to the forum, Terry.

    I'm afraid I don't know much about Kamaka. Maybe you could contact their customer services with your request for info?

    If your user name is a real email address you rely on, I hope you don't regret posting it on a public forum.

    Found this: https://unofficialkamakaukulele.word...dstock-decals/

    Seems to say that the short Tiki was late 60s, longer one in 70s

    I believe that the Tiki models are fairly rare and highly sought after.

    Beyond that, I don't know anything about them except they look fun.

    Almost forgot: Welcome to the UU Forum! Have fun playing your uke. Kamaka ukuleles, being the oldest continuously uke-producing company, are the baseline that all solid koa ukuleles are compared to.
