    Jake is sponsored by Kamaka so he has a couple of custom ukes. He's also supposed to have a signature model that Kamaka was going to produce and sell to the general public. Don't know if they ever got around to making them.
    Rayan, What you are doing?

    I give up with my PM box, just email ryan(at)ukuleleunderground.com

    YES Mahaloz!

    just did a little research on this, and apparently there were only 100 of them made, and they all sold out in jan 2007. i doubt you'll be seeing one go up on ebay any time soon though.

    Hope this helps. This was the Signature JS Model That Kamaka was offering at the 2006 NAMM Show. This is I believe, the first one and at the time I took this photo, I can remember no one was allowed to play it or handle it. In talking with Chris Kamaka thestory was they just finished spraying it the day before they left Hawaii for the NAMM show in Cal. Obviously it's not exact to Jake's custom(s) but was offered as a signature model. I think the Japanese market ordered most of them. I haven't seen one since that show.
