    ehhh... the market will drive this to equilibrium price... otherwise, some idiot will snatch this up.. which might result in artificial price inflation...

    I love these ads. The remind me of when I walked into a local antique store five years ago and bought one just like it for $30. My 11-year-old son was able to start playing ukulele on a fine instrument (he plays it endlessly and has yet to put a scratch on it).

    I saw a pinapple Kamaka on SF Bay Craigslist for $900 last week.

    Yes $1150 is about twice the going rate for the gold label kamakas...even in mint,museum quality they usually go for $400-650.....But Alas there are those out there that are either clueless,or are just plain greedy when it comes to vintage kamaka ukes....

    I see new Kamaka sopranos going for $995 these days so in a few more years they will be worth $1195.

    This thread will become self fulfilling.
