The inspiration came from the Hawaiian Lap Steel. The bluesy, sweet melodious sound that can only be felt here in Hawai’i.

What our Customer’s Say..

Wow! What a Beautiful Instrument! I received the Acacia K1 Ukulele in the mail all the way to Wichita! It got here super fast, and I was impressed with the quality and the sound. It definitely exceeded my expectations and its safe to say I am very happy about that.  I will spread the Aloha out here in Kansas! I also want to give a personal thanks for answering our many questions. Thank you much.

Hi There! So if you have not heard of Kaka’ako Instruments, you definitely will. The instruments are some of the highest quality Ukuleles on the market, without a steep pricetag. I ordered myself a Concert K2 Acacia, and in comparison to my other Brand Ukes, it just became my #1 to Gig with.  It has such a sweet tone and my K&K Aloha Twin Pickup just really brings out the natural tones of the Acacia. So thrilled, yes I had to go ahead and buy myself the Spruce Top, which wow huge sound. Thank you much Matthew. Couldnt be happier.

“Matt, Very Happy with the Ukuleles. The craftsmanship is perfect! I order 2 Concerts and a Deluxe Tenor Acacia, all perfect sounding.  I gave the concerts to my children and kept the Tenor for myself. Thank you so much from my whole family! Hope to visit one day. “
