No need to explain the history and tradition of Kamaka instruments, other than to say that since 1916 they've been making seriously beautiful instruments. They're very, very good at it.

This model has a seriously beautiful slotted headstock, abalone purfling and rosette and startlingly sexy Koa all around - AAA grade for the top and not far off it for the back and sides. It feels so immensely special in the hand - it really has a certain X factor that is hard to describe. You can literally feel your inner Jake wanted to pop out. And in your ears, it has all the Hawaiian sound in spades, but with a really refined and cultured edge that is...well, expensive to achieve.

Soundwise when new it will be a little bit tight for the first few months, but the more you play it the more you'll get out of it. A change of strings to pep up the sound it you want a brighter vibe would be advised - D'Addario Carbons are very civilised and bring the best out of most Kamaka tenors.

Worth every penny, and a few more!
