Jonah Kumalae Hawaiian Ukulele, 1915
Jonah Kumalae 1915 Gold Medal ukulele. Kumalae Hawaii decal on headstock with inside paper label that reads "Ukulele O Hawaii - Made by Jonah Kumalae Honolulu - Especially for McNeil and Co. Stockton, California - Highest Award at Panama International Exposition 1915". Constructed of koa with curly koa on the neck. Four matching tortoiseshell tuning knobs look to be original.
Measures 22 inches long by 6 inches wide at body.
This ukulele is in original condition with an excellent finish. The wood grain is very pretty. No cracks, splits or repairs and it has not been refinished. Play wear is seen on the upper neck and there are a few minor bumps on the body. Decal and label are very good. Sounds great. Comes with its well traveled, very worn canvas instrument case. Please check out the photos. Thanks for looking and e-mail with any questions.
