KUMALAE STYLE ‘E’ or 5, SOPRANO UKULELE with case. 1920’s.

In overall good condition, all original apart from two tuning pegs, replaced with period Kumalae pegs, which are slightly different. There is a shrinkage crack to the top. Starting to the far left of the bridge, running down to the bottom edge, which is stable. It can clearly be seen in photos 13, 14 and 15. All Koa construction. The style is the highest model that was made by Jonah Kumalae, with a different peghead to all other styles. I am not sure if the case is original, but it is from the same period. It is in poor condition, but can be restored. The catches and hinges are OK, but the handle is missing.
