We do not know the exact year this lovely Kamaka Gold Label Soprano Ukulele was made, but according to Kamaka's web site, this was made between 1954 and 1969, Built by hand in Hawaii from all solid Hawaiian Koa, it was that opened-up, sweet and delicately bright sound that is so often sought in a top quality ukulele. It is in good condition overall, and although it has 2 cracks below the bridge (see picture) they have been professional sealed and are very stable. Fret wear is minimal. The Koa pattern is quite striking, particularly on the back. Comes with a nicely protective featherlight case.
