Interesting tidbit re Kamaka from "Ukulele: The World's Friendliest Instrument" -

We've all heard about the deaf workers able to feel vibrations in the wood through their fingertips. Sam Jr. expands a bit:

"Those deaf workers were grateful for any kind of a job," he continued. "Never complained, never called in sick, never asked for a raise. They were easy to push around. That was the main reason why my father hired them. He was not what you'd call a sympathetic man."

Now this is the way all uke books should be written.
