Founded by Samuel Kaialiilii Kamaka in 1916, Kamaka is the oldest Hawaiian ukulele builder in existence. It's still owned and operated by members of the Kamaka family.
The HP-1 LD is Kamaka’s traditional pineapple soprano size ukulele with a longer neck that joins at the 14th fret instead of the 12th. This allows for easier access to higher frets and also provides a subtle volume boost due to the slightly higher string tension.
Solid koa body and neck. These models are feature a new semi-gloss finish that is less shiny than previous Kamaka ukuleles, and we think it looks great!
This ukulele also features Kamaka's "Deluxe" appointment package, which features a couple upgrades over their standard series:
Rope purfling and rosette
Ebony fingerboard and bridge
This special 100th anniversary edition features a beautiful custom headstock inlay that will only be available for ukuleles ordered in 2016.
Gotoh UPT planetary ukulele tuners for smooth, accurate tuning.
Includes deluxe hard case with Kamaka 100th Anniversary logo.
