KAMAKA ‘PINEAPPLE’ Soprano Ukulele (c.1927). This is a really nice example of a vintage Kamaka ‘Pineapple’ Ukulele with the harder to find and more desirable ‘rope binding’ around the top of the body and around the sound hole. Made from beautiful Hawaiian Koa wood throughout. Original tuning pegs. There is a Kamaka label on the top of the peghead and a ‘Pineapple’ label on the top of the body, and the original Kamaka Pineapple label is still inside the body. The neck is straight and there is some genuinely minor wear to the first couple of frets. The old varnish has worn a little on the first couple of playing positions. There are no signs of any cracks or splits in the body and the bridge is in excellent condition. This ukulele has a perfect playing action and it produces that beautiful deep, full and resonant Kamaka tone which sounds gorgeous. This lovely old ukulele comes in a period banjolele case with a red interior. £400.

This concert ukulele was made after it was suggested to the luthier by a friend that it would be impossible to make a ukulele entirely out of pine. Always liking a challenge he proved his friend wrong and this gorgeous instrument is the result. It was built in response to the Pete Howlett 2 x 4 Challenge issued on Ukulele Underground Luthiers Forum and here is the link to the thread: http://forum.ukuleleunderground.com/showthread.php?114726-
It has a straight neck with no wear to the wear to the frets or the fingerboard and no splits, cracks or repairs. It has a sixteen-
