VINTAGE KAMAKA SOLID KOA SOPRANO

£949.00

Description

Another wonderful piece of ukulele history. This is an early 1920s Kamaka all solid koa soprano. This is in the early Portuguese/Hawaiian style with the small figure 8 shape, high soundhole and fingerboard flush to the body. It had a new bridge fitted by Kamaka in the 1990s and three cracks that have all been glued and are stable. The friction pegs are not original but still work.

Amazingly for a 100 year old instrument it plays beautifully with a nice low action and no buzzing. I have strung it with soprano Flurocarbons and it sounds great with a big loud open tone that you only get from vintage instruments.

An heirloom piece of amazing history, but equally a brilliant uke to play for many more years to come.
