    John, that's a great looking Kamaka! And what a nice memento of your aunt. You did the right thing.

    Happy playing, and let us know how you're getting on with it.

    Congratulations, you did the right thing, it is a beautiful instrument with great looking Koa. As a guitar player you may or may not know that George Harrison was a huge ukulele fan and loved Kamakas. Legend has it while in LA he would buy a bunch of Kamakas and give them out to friends so they could jam together.

    Your aunt would be proud.

    Thanks all. Gonna be a fun journey. I go to Marthas Vineyard in summer, and the local Arts center has weekly uke jams/workshops and an annual uke festival, so I'll be checking those out for sure. https://vimeo.com/141787871
