1969 Kamaka Classical Guitar

Another rare guitar that Ukulele Friend has had.  Check it out here.

A piece of art! Extremely stunning and rare 1969 Custom Kamaka ‘Classical’ Guitar handcrafted by master luthier Samuel Kamaka. This beautiful guitar was a special commission undertaken by the Kamaka custom shop in the late sixties and has been professionally refinished to return it to its former glory.

Master grade Hawaiian curly Koa wood back and sides with master grade spruce soundboard for added clarity and depth and a full range response. Solid Spanish Cedar wood neck and Maple wood top and back binding, ebony wood fingerboard and matching Koa wood headstock cap and Cuban Mahogany wood bridge for aesthetic appeal. Intricate classical guitar rosette fashioned in traditional style and top red and purfling lines for a subtle but elegant appeal.

    Are there any Kamaka 10 string tiples currently for sale??

    • I would check with Shawn at ukulelefriend.com, or Andrew at theukulelesite.com

    • Don Crawford Says:

      Hi I have what I think is a Kamaka tiple. Looks just like it, but no label inside. I hadn’t thought of selling it, but I don’t use it much and I don’t like seeing it just sitting around. So I’m contacting you. Without a definite intention. But let me know if you’re still looking.
      Don Crawford.

  4. Aloha, Great website. Thanks for the site. I might have overlooked it but I don’t see the Kamaka listed that was refereed to as a “Cigar Band” due to the look of the label at the bottom or heel of the instrument. My Best, Jeff
