My uncle was a slack key musician on the island and turned me on to the Ka'au Crater Brothers. They're pretty old school but were innovators in their time. Check out their song " On Fire " ( not the North Shore On Fire ) just On Fire. Enjoy the new uke. I jumped in deep at the time as well. But mine only cost 600.00........It is a 6 string though!

Btw, thanks to whoever linked the IZ song. Makes me well up everytime i hear it.
I'll bet we're related somehow ;)
