Ten years ago I visited Hawaii with the family, and left without picking up a K-brand ukulele! Something I grew to lament. Today, I finally had the opportunity to correct that grave mistake. Purchased this early 2020 Kamaka HF-1, in great condition, for about 40% of the current retail price here in Australia (~600 USD). No surface flaws, apart from a small dent in the finish on the headstock, visible in the lower right-hand corner, which I may, or may not (mojo effect?), have fixed down the track. It's been recently re-strung by the previous owner with some Japanese-brand nylons, and so far, am loving the thing. Nothing wild about the Koa, but it's still pretty enough, and the Gotoh planetary tuners are amazing!
