Now down to $795, always in stock and always hand selected to have the one with best looking grain in stock. Possibly the best of the current crop of available This one is special, and we hand pick every one we sell of this particular model. Why so you ask? Well first of all they are modeled on the famous Kumalae #3B Hawaiian Ukulele of the early 20th century. They were made between about 1912 and 1939 in Honolulu and are considered amongst the best of Island makers. 1879 comes from the year that the Portuguese arrived in Hawaii, resulting in the adaptation of their Braguina instrument being modified, and the uke as we know it evolved. Next they are constructed of all solid Koa wood - the preferred timber for authentic sounding ukes. They sound wondrous, loud and airy, are nice to play and weigh almost nothing.
This was the best looking of the current crop, nice figure on the front and back.
NOW down to $795 @ Guitars plus - we always have one of these (or try to) and every one is hand picked.
