This uke is a bit of a mystery - it is hard to find much info out there on it.  The Y'Keke brand was apparently added to Hawaiian Mahogany Company's ukes for sale in the US. 

The instrument is made of solid mahogany and has some beautiful friction tuning pegs that appear to be ivory. Aside from the dent in the top, the uke is in great shape with no cracks.  I have it in a beat up case that'll help get it to you, but you'll want to find a new onw. 

"Hawaiian ukes typically didn’t feature the name of their actual manufacturer, and often the same instrument made by the same company was sold under different brand names. HMC’s (Hawaiian Mahogany Company's) Echo ukes sold in Hawaii were sometimes branded as “Pele,” while Echos sold on the mainland were often re-branded by music retailers: San Francisco dealer Jules M. Sahlein sold them under his trademarked “Y’Ke’Ke” brand name, while Schireson Brothers of Los Angeles offered them as “Mai Kai” ukuleles."
