1970s Kamaka HF-38 Ukulele

This is a vintage 1970s Kamaka HF-38 8-string tenor ukulele. Made in Honolulu, Hawaii using indigenous Koa, this is both an exotic and rare specimen. Though a similar model is produced today (with an MSRP of $1,595), the appointments on this vintage version are more traditional. Preserved in absolutely perfect condition, there is no evidence of this instrument having been used, and it includes both the original soft case and an original set of plastic strings! Also known as the “Liliu VIII,” the Tenor 8-String was designed by Sam Kamaka Jr. in 1976 to commemorate the Bicentennial of the United States, of which, this is one of the earlier examples!
