    Default Kamaka 8 string Baritone

    Craigslist Hawaii has one for sale, pictures included in the ad.
    I've never heard of these instruments. I'd appreciate any information on them, and any info on the 8 string baritone as well.

    Cheers!

    Kamaka is a VERY respected uke, as you will learn from a variety of folks here on the forum. As to the 8-string Baritone, I don't have any first-hand knowledge of that; but, being Kamaka, I would expect it to be excellent. Do a search for Kamaka and see what it turns up here in the forum.
    . . . and justice for all.

    I've had that one for a while, and I think it's sweet tuned gCEA.

    I've never heard of an 8 string baritone before, but since it's Kamaka I was wondering if anybody knew if it was a special edition.
