 Vintage 1950s Martin Style 1 Mahogany Ukulele

Since 1916, Martin has crafted high quality, all mahogany ukuleles. This instrument is a rare find for the true ukulele enthusiast.

Presenting a classic Martin Soprano Ukulele from the 1950s. A wonderful player ukulele in original condition. The total length is 21 inches and scale length is 13 1/2". Martin ukuleles are among the most sought after player ukuleles and continue to be considered a ‘player’s choice’ with enthusiasts and recording musicians. All mahogany wood construction. Excellent ‘presence’ with deep lows and balanced mid-range. You’ll be surprised at the punch this one packs for a little soprano uke.
