    Give my friend Tangi a call. Tell him Dean from HPD sent you. He has ukulele's in all different price ranges. Another good thing is that you are buying directly from him and not through a retailer. Here is his website.

    In Oahu, check out Good Guys Music & Sound, Dan's Guitars, & Hawaii Music Supply for a pretty good selection and great prices. Check out Ukulele Pua Pua at Waikiki for a pretty wide selection, although the prices are not as good (everything on Waikiki is expensive). Of course, you should also pay musicguymic a visit if possible. If you have the budget for a high end custom, pay Shawn Yacavone a visit. He's great.

    I was in Oahu this past January. My ukulele advantures during that trip could be read here.

    You might also check out Craigslist (if you have access to computer) and the local papers. There are several others who specialize in custom builds but here's a list of the ones often mentioned . . . BTW, they are all O'ahu based. Good Luck and have a fun.

    you should go to kamaka...i think on tuesdays, they give a tour of their factory at around 10:30ish and i heard that it's amazing. You may not buy an ukulele there, but just go for the experience. =D

    $325 is too much for that one. musicguymic has it for less here. And I'm pretty sure some of the music stores in Oahu actually has better prices if they got it in stock. You should shop around.
