The Kumalae I bought for $35. It was found in the basement of an old house that was being cleaned out. The price I paid for it was definitely a steal; it was going to be sold for $70, and the price that I've seen these go for is much more greater. The Gretsch was given to me from my step-grandfather. It belonged to his mother, who played it. It was wrapped up in a heavy plastic bag and was almost on the bottom of a blanket chest under some blankets. I'm amazed it wasn't crushed. Both are in decent shape. The Kumalae has a long crack half way down the back, and the Gretsch has two tiny cracks also on the back, but they are minute.
