Kamaka 2013 Mango HF-1D NOS

Call for Price

This ukulele was originally made in 2013 by Kamaka Hawaii, most likely for demonstration purposes at trade shows.  It was issued new from Kamaka Hawaii in 2021.  The ukulele is as it would have been when it was created. The neck feels different to me than standard production, even different from normal deluxe models. The ukulele is more resonant, with a lot of volume, especially for a soprano. Perhaps the fullest sounding Kamaka soprano that I have ever come across, this ukulele is intriguing. Quite rare and wonderful.
