"...a few years ago I decided that I wanted a Kamaka painted pineapple uke, but I didn't have the bucks for one. I asked Robert Armstrong if he would paint an old plain pineapple for me with the famous design and he agreed so I sent it to him. After getting it, though, he realized that it would take too long to paint the standard Kamaka design, so he asked if he could try something different. I'm always up for something new, so I said sure, do whatever you want. Anyway, this is what I got, which I just love. I'm particularly pleased with the soundhole ring."
