Where to find a real ukulele?

Not looking for a toy or cheap souvenier but a real instrument. Any suggestions on where to find them. Also interested in island music CDs -- Slack Key and Hapa -- any suggestions or should I just look in Walmart. Staying in Hilo and Haupuna Beach.

Call Dennis Lake at Ka'u String Works (808.929.9591) and tell him you got his number from JSRabi. He is a well known ukulele maker. There is an ukulele store in Kealakekua too, next to the Uncle Inbea's Steak House.

Hi Miss Maple. Try Sam Rosen in Holualoa, above Kona. He is next to the Donkey Mill Art Center (view to DIE for). He will even give a little lesson on the spot.
