Kamaka HP-1 L

Kamaka HP-1 L

Soprano Pineapple Size • Solid Koa Body

Regular price $1,145 Sale Serial 164505


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 L 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.

This special 100th anniversary edition features a beautiful custom headstock inlay that will only be available for ukuleles built in 2016. 

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!

Rosewood fingerboard and bridge.

Gotoh UPT planetary ukulele tuners for smooth, accurate tuning.

Includes deluxe hard case with Kamaka 100th Anniversary logo.
